On a soggy course Fazil Haniff persevered to snatch the trophy in last Saturday’s Codol Compound golf tournament sponsored by New Guyana Pharmaceutical Corporation (GPC) at the Lusignan Golf Club. Playing the Stableford system which awards points for each hole depending on a player’s score, Haniff racked up 39 points and pipped a resurgent Brian Glasford who also scored 39 points but lost on a lower total for the last nine holes. Third place went to the ever consistent Bhowlaram Deo with 35. Nearest to the pin was Esau Shamshudin.
New GPC company secretary Paul Braam said the company was pleased to sponsor the event and was surprised on visiting the club for the first time to see the top class facilities and the vibrancy of the membership. Club treasurer Brain Hackett expressed the members’ profound appreciation for the sponsorship and also said how pleasant it was to have sponsors visiting and mixing with the players.
