Sharing his sentiments at the end of the competition was Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) Secretary Chet Bowling, who said, “Well, in terms of what it feels like to host another tournament, I feel excited. We see more companies coming forward and we are actively looking to engage various business associations to partner with, to bring golf to their members. What’s next for us is that next Saturday we will be hosting a tournament sponsored by Suresh JagMohan Construction Services. The COVID situation is still a concern, but we see things moving forward, the executive is actively discussing the Guyana Open, which usually sees a lot of overseas players – from the USA, Suriname and other Caribbean countries.”
