THE 23rd Tafo Golf Open ended on high over the weekend at the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana, Tafo, in the Eastern Region.

The two-day event drew golfers from across the country who battled for honours in respective categories.

Royal Golf Club’s Felicity Okyei Geabour won the ladies Group A category with a 165 net, beating club mate Constance Awuni by three strokes. Achimota’s Jessica Tei finished third with 174 net.

Pamela Atila finished first in Ladies Group B with 142 net, followed by Vastie Amoafo Yeboah with 165 net. Kofi Yeboah dominated the Scratch (Main) event with an impressive 145 net score, beating Peter Daglo (148) by three strokes; Christopher Mbii finished third with just a stroke behind.

A 137 net score handed Samuel Gyekye the men’s Group B top prize, while Frank Nimako and Kofi Nkansah followed with 141 and 145 nets respectively.

President of the club, Prince Kofi Amoabeng in a post-tourney interview said the course had always been challenging, but golfers managed to play on it, commending them for making this year’s event a success.

Executive Head of Vodafone Ghana – Eastern and Volta, Alex Kwapong, said “golf has to do with all

segments of people, so we came on board to network with our customers and also to explain to them some of our products which will help them be on top of their businesses.

“At Vodafone, we believe in a productive workforce, when labour force is healthy, it boosts productivity, hence our involvement in this competition.”
