Golfers tee off today in Basil Sukhram Memorial tournament

Local golfers will tee off from noon today in the first tournament of 2013 a Memorial one in honour of the late former professional player and coach Basil Sukhram at the Lusignan Golf Club course.
The one-day tournament is being sponsored by golf enthusiast and former Guyana Open champion Alfred Mentore through his Real Estate Company on North Road.

Close to 35 golfers have registered to take part to show their appreciation to the late Sukhram, who was a stalwart of the sport locally.
Sukhram, the father of national ladies champion, Christine Sukhram, died in 2009 at the age of 54 year when he suffered a heart attack while playing a round at the Lusignan Golf Course.
