Rosignol Secondary Aims To Capture Top CSEC Golf Honors for Third Year

The Nexgen Golf Academy on Woolford Avenue came alive on Friday with dozens of students from Rosignol Secondary, Mahaicony Secondary and Berbice Educational Institute coming to take the practical golf examination for PE elective.
This is the third year that Rosignol Secondary has led the nation in number of students, with 100% electing to take golf as the PE elective. In 2022, Rosignol had 38 students growing to 53 in 2023 and 51 in 2024 and to date has achieved a 100% pass rate with 93% at Grade I. This year’s class was led by Sirs Kevon Jawahir and Arudranaught Jaikarran. Mahaicony Secondary was led by Sir Akeem Wilson.
The Guyana Golf Association and Nexgen Golf Academy has pioneered golf in the Guyana Secondary Schools, donating thousands of balls and clubs so that more than 22,000 learners are given access to the sport on a weekly basis.
It is projected that more than 300 students will choose golf as their PE elective at CSEC this year, an increase by over 200% from 2022. President of the GGA Aleem Hussain said, “We are proud to be associated with these amazing students, teachers, HM’s and the Ministry of Education who have allowed us to elevate the sport in Guyana. In just three years, together we were able to accomplish milestones that other countries have struggled to achieve.”
CPCE Sports Coordinator Mr. Stanley Alkey commented, “the hard work that Mr. Hussain and his team has put in to bring Golf to every Guyanese student is immeasurable and we owe him a great deal for his efforts and dedication.”
Teams of 4 will compete for trophies, prizes and bragging rights as Cyril Potter College of Education hosts its first national Drive, Chip and Putt Tournament on Saturday April 13 when 84 players will compete in the Guyana Beverages Inc/Nexgen Golf Academy event at the campus ground in Turkeyen.
The tournament is open to all categories of players and admission is free.
