Tema, Aug. 10. GNA - Junior golfers in the Greater Accra Region would for the first time take part in this month's Tema Country Golf Club Medal championship scheduled for Tema on Saturday, August 14. Mr Ebenezer Adablanu, Chief Executive Officer of the club, who announced this at Tema on Tuesday said the idea was to give the youngsters the opportunity to understudy the techniques of the game from their seniors and also give them the necessary exposure to master the sport.
He said it would also help the youngsters to acquire the needed knowledge and skills so that they can take over from their seniors when they retire from the sport.
The event is expected to see a large entry that would include John William Van Aalst, winner of the Peugeot Challenge Golf Juniors event and Charles Otoo, an up and coming aspirant golfer from the Celebrity Golf club who has vowed to win the maiden trophy.
On the Seniors side, ace Captain of Tema, Alex Fiagomey would lead a team of crack golfers that will include Felix Owusu-Adjapong and John Cobbina to battle a crack team from the Achimota Gold Club to be led by their captain, Samuel Adetola. Tee off is at 0600 hours.
