Former Guyana Open golf champion, Avinash Persaud, Saturday  won the inaugural New Town Restaurant and Distribution golf tournament at the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) from a field of 25 strong.

Persaud, also the recipient of the best gross prize (75), said it was a good feeling to be back on top but there is still room for improvement.

He won the A Flight with scores of 72/70 while Pandit Ravi Persaud copped the B Flight with scores 81/65 and Clifford Reis secured the C Flight with 99/74.

Rudy Ramalingum, proprietor of New Town Restaurant, said it was always good to support the development of sports, particularly golf while pledging to support future events by the club.

The restaurant, which is set to be one of the pioneers of food distribution in the country, provided samples of what will be available for young entrepreneurs who are willing to start their own business with little to no investment since all would be handled by the company.

Acting Club captain, Dr Joaan Deo said that the club was happy to see the business use the sport as an avenue to launch its company, while thanking them for their continued support in the future.

Aleem Hussain, Club President, said the Club has 22 tournaments annually with the competitions providing opportunities for further development.
