Bok Nam Kim golf challenge on April 9
Accra, Mar. 30, GNA - This year's annual Bok Nam Kim Memorial golf challenge, the second biggest event of the Tema Country Golf Club after the Tema Open, tees off on Saturday, April 9. The competition is played annually in honour of Bok Nam Kim, former president of the club whose immense contribution raised the sport to an appreciable level. The one-day 18-hole full handicap event will feature both amateurs and professionals across the country including those from Benso in the Western Region. Mr Ebenezer Adablanu, Chief Executive Officer of the Tema Country Golf told the GNA Sports that although the main event was fixed for Saturday, April 18, it would be heralded by the professional competition on Friday. Those expected to blaze the trail include Phil McCaulley winner of this year's "Swing for a child competition", Mr Felix Owusu Agyepong, president of the club and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Nana Antwi-Bosiako. The ladies would not be left out either, as Esther Antwi, winner of the female category of the "swing for a child competition", Etwi Barimah and Shupi Mapuranga would be among the favourites to carry the day. Bok Nam Kim was president of the club for eight years until his death in 1995. He was the Managing Director of Afko Group of Companies in Tema and made sure that the company sponsored all major tournaments of the club and helped transform the sport tremendously. Current MD of Afko, Madam Young O. Kim, wife of the late Bok Nam Kim has over the years ensured that the annual event remained the biggest sponsored golf competition of the club "and this year would not be exception", Mr Adablanu confirmed to the GNA Sports.
