Guillermo Escarraga overtook the rest of the golfers on Saturday to mark his name as the champion of the inaugural Hospitality (Marriot, Grand Coastal and Aracari Resort) tournament at the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC).
Escarraga won himself a gift voucher worth a two-night stay for two at Marriott with his score of 64/90 which was the best net performance.
Patrick Prashad (73/85) accounted for second place and a two-night package at Grand Coastal while Patanjalee Persaud (74/91) and Aleem Hussain (75/85) earned both players a one-night stay at the Aracari Resort.
The Best Gross score of 78 won by Avinash Persaud saw him the recipient of the award of a dinner for two at the Grand Coastal Hotel.
Four players Persaud (76/78), William Walker (76/85), Hilbert Shields (76/93) and Lekhnarine Shivraj (76/93) turned in net scores of 76 while Brian Glasford returned 77/92 and Roy Cummings 78/91.
President of the LGC, Hussain voiced that the timing of the Hotel and Hospitality tournament was excellent, coming as a follow-up to the two-day Lusignan Open held earlier this month and acting as a precursor to this year’s international Guyana Open set for November 4 and 5.
The three hotels are partnering with the LGC so that guests at these hotels get special privileges and discounted rates for playing golf at the LGC. In fact, anyone coming from overseas to participate in the Guyana Open 2018 (GO2018) will receive special rates for staying at the hotels. For this year’s Guyana Open, Hussain said he expects representation from even more countries than ever before and welcomes any foreign golfer who would be in Guyana at the time to participate and represent their country, especially if it is the first time.
