KOTA KINABALU: Around 150 golfers are targeted by the organisers to take part in the Sabah Amateur Open Sponsored Golf Tournament to be held this Sunday at Keningau Golf and Country Club (KuGCC) in Keningau.
KuGCC president, Johnny Kulai when contacted, yesterday, said that the April 23 tournament is organised to raise money to lighten the burden of KuGCC who will play host for the 33rd Sabah Amateur Open on April 28 to 30.
“The tournament’s objective is to collect money through participants’ registration fees where each golfer needs to pay RM300 which includes buggy fee, GST and goodies.
“It is open to all golfers around Sabah and as part of the organising committee, I would like to invite participation from outside Sabah, especially overseas golfers,” he said.
Johhny added that organisers have set a target of 150 golfers where around 80 slots have been taken so far.
The tournament has prepared interesting prizes for the winners including a hole-in-one prize of a brand new Toyota Sienta 1.5V A/T for the lucky golfer who holed out the Par 3 12th hole. However, the prize will be split evenly if more than one golfer managed to ace the hole.
For more information regarding registration contact the KuGCC office at 087-331113 or Shim at 016-8471284. – UMESH RAJAN
