The local golf season is expected to resume today with a club tournament following a prolonged break due to the recent inclement weather, an official of the Lusignan Golf Club (LCG) has disclosed.
Dave Mohamed, a vice president of the LGC, said that plans are on stream to run off a club tournament today to get the golfers in shape for several major tournaments planned for the remainder of the year.
According to Mohamed, the course is in excellent shape and the players can expect the greens and fairway to be in excellent condition.
Among the tournaments expected to be played off are the annual Guyana Open, the Digicel Two-Day Classic, Courts Furniture Store?s anniversary tournament and the Players Cup which is sponsored by Citizens Bank.
Mohamed said the rainy season had affected events at the club but once tournaments resume, the club will be very active again.
The rain has kept players off the course but our intention is to keep them busy for the rest of the year,? he added.
The Guyana Open is once again expected to feature players from the United States, Canada, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago competing against Guyana?s best.
Avinash Persaud and Christine Sukhram are the defending men and women?s champions.
The Digicel Classic, which serves as a warm up for the Guyana Open, will also feature many of Guyana?s leading players as well as overseas visitors.
