Support for coming Caribbean Golf Championships in Barbados at Royal Westmoreland By Hallam Hope
The golfing community has responded positively to a fund raising offer by Apes Hill in support of the staging of the 54th Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships.
Secretary of the Barbados Golf Association Trenton Weekes says Apes Hill Club has extended the Tee Times from Saturday coming to this Friday and Sunday as well.
Weekes reported that the initial day offered of Saturday has been sold out.
BGA President Birchmore Griffith has also reported that nine countries and teams, all with nearly full contingents, have confirmed their participation in the coming championships.
“Almost every team will have a full contingent of 14 players plus a manager,” Griffith said.
In addition to the prestigious Hoerman Cup for men, there will be a women’s championship and competition in Seniors, Super Seniors and Mid Amateur categories.
Barbados will for the first time in 10 years be the host nation for the 54th Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships at Royal Westmoreland from June 27th to July 4th.
