The annual Trophy Stall golf tournament, a fixture on the Lusignan Golf Club’s annual calendar of events, takes place today at the Lusignan Golf Course.
The tournament is being sponsored by Trophy Stall of Bourda Market, whose proprietor and Managing Director Ramesh Sunich, is well known for his outstanding contribution to the various sports disciplines in Guyana.
The ever popular Sunich, a vice president of the Guyana Floodlights Softball Cricket Association (GFSCA) has donated numerous trophies in support of several sports disciplines such as boxing, basketball, cricket and football to name a few.
“Trophy Stall is a leading supplier of trophies in Guyana and the tournament is always a highlight of golfers,” a release from the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) stated.
“When in the 2014 it was played in the Flights format, it was a resounding success as golfers were able to adequately prepare for the Guyana Open that followed within weeks.
“Mr. Sunich and Trophy Stall have been sponsoring golf tournaments for some seven years while their association with the Lusignan Golf Club by means of trophies – whether gifts or purchases – goes back some 17 years,” the release added.
Lusignan Golf Club President Oncar Ramroop thanked Sunich for continuing to include golfing in his annual contributions to the many sports disciplines in Guyana.
Last year’s Trophy Stall tournament, played under the Open medal Play format was won by Roberto Grissi 27/63 with Laksmana Ramroop 26/63 second and Richard Haniff 16/65 third.
Sam Harry 11/67 was fourth and was the winner of the Best Gross prize while Kassim Khan (16”) was the Nearest to The Pin winner.
