Kwarteng is Junior Golf Open champion

Francis Kwarteng from the Bogoso Golf Club, Ankobra, has emerged winner of this year’s Junior Golf Open.

Touted as the most competitive in the history of the event, the 15-year old produced a gross score of 84 to shrug off a stiff challenge from Steven Abongo (Bogoso), 17, after a sudden death play-off.

A 64 net score handed the handicap winner to Papa Enninful (Nsuta), 16, after beating Mahama Yakubu by just a stroke.

The event received massive support by way of sponsorship from Apex Shipping Company Limited (ASCO), Access Bank, Vanguard Assurance and high profile personalities – Mr. Kwesi Twum and Mr. Ebow Essandoh.

The 18-Hole event attracted 41 juvenile golfers including some of the finest juvenile golfers in the country which was hosted by the Ghana Manganese Company (GMC) Golf Club, Nsuta, in the Western Region.

It was organised under the auspices of the Ghana Golf Association (GGA), and the Committee for the Golf Development Programme.

The organisers expressed gratitude to Mr. John Coates, Captain and Manager of Nsuta Golf Club, for his support, generosity and hospitality.

Mr. Coates urged the participants to put the golfing lessons to good use and commended the instructors for availing themselves for the exercise; as well as the sponsors for their support.
