PGA Cedrella Open tees off tomorrow …GH¢100,000 involved, 70 golfers on board

 The second on the series for the Road to Obotan, which is Cedrella Open Cham­pionship, will tee off at the Safari Valley Golf Course at Adukrom tomorrow to Satur­day November 19, 2022 in the Eastern Region.

The championship is second on the series of the Road to Obotan tournament after the first Mahogany Open tourna­ment in March, early this year in Samreboi.

The championship will see over 70 professional golfers across the length and breadth of the country. There will be an amateur event too apart from

 the flagship regular and seniors professionals competing to secure their spots in the Obotan tourna­ment.

A prize money of GH¢100,000 is placed on the Championship as purse with winner of the regular side getting GH¢17,000; second will go home with GH¢10,000 and the third GH¢7,000.00. In the seniors category, winner will smile away with GH¢5,000 with first and second runner-up pocketing GH¢3,500 and GH¢2,800 respec­tively.

Professional Golfers Associa­tion (PGA) tournament director Akwesi Prempeh, says the course is ready to host the much-antici­pated golf championship.

“The course is very fine and in a beautiful shape. It’s a small course but really shaped well and every golf­er will love playing on the course,

“It does not have the long drive ability but good putting greens to sink your balls.”

The West African number one pro golfer Vincent Torgah, a member from Centre of the World and teach­ing pro at Samartex golf club, who won the first Obotan tournament, would have to compete strongly against celebrated player in Afri­ca – Emos Korblah, and other top Ghanaian golfers like Kojo Barnni, Lucky Ayisah, Maxwell Owusu Bon­du, Francis Torgah, Kwame Ligbidi and young golfer who is leaving no stone unturned Augustine Manasseh Agbenene, if he really wants to de­fend his title.
