…all proceeds go towards staff
The Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) hosted its first indoor tournament on Saturday following months of inactivity owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, with proceeds going towards assisting club members.
Some 29 golfers took to the greens in an effort to ensure those attached to the club and were heavily affected by the pandemic were still able to provide for their families.
As such, the local pros took the necessary precautions to ensure they abided by the social distancing guidelines while still bringing out their A-Games.
Entrance fee for the club tourney was $3000, which meant LGC staff, including caddies, club-house workers, groundsmen, were able to receive some means of financial stability while waiting for normalcy to return.
Coming in at first place was veteran golfer Deanand “Deno” Bissessar, who ended with a Gross 83 and 61 Net. Second, third and fourth place were also occupied by a few star players in “Pandit” Ravi, Ian Gouveia 80/64, and Shanella London 84/70.
The LGC, last month, donated a number of hampers to the Lusignan community as a means of providing COVID-19 relief to their caddies and their families as well as other residents in the neighbourhood.
Meanwhile, local golfers will continue to slowly ease back into action with occasional in-house tournaments, as they further wait out the lockdown period.
