Odade3 wallops MOBA in golf contest

A team of Odade3 (Presbyterian Old Boys Association) walloped their Mfantsipim counterparts (MOBA) in an 11 1/2 - 8 1/2 win for Odade3 at the Tema Country Golf Club held on May Day, 2017.

The competition which was hosted by MOBA, was a much anticipated one for the PRESEC boys as this was their inaugural inter-schools golf competition.

The PRESEC guys were outstanding in their performance and it was quite surprising to see them wallop the MOBA team. The ODADE3 team displayed amazing skills and they were a delight to watch.

Commenting on the outstanding performance of their team, Michael Darko of Odade3 93/95 who acted as Competition Secretary for the Odade3 side said, “We were just happy to have put a golf team together finally.

We channeled that positive energy to the golf course. The trophy was also donated by ODADE3 Mike Nyinaku of the BEIGE Group so we are happy to have retained it”.

The classic encounter saw the game of golf at its best promoting friendship and pitching stalwarts like Mike Aggrey (Captain, MOBA) and Smyly Bannerman of the MOBA team against Frank Adu (Captain, Odade3) and Michael Darko of the Odade3 team.

A return encounter for this match has been slated for October, 2017 and team ODADE3 has vowed to retain the trophy.

Team ODADE3 has thrown a challenge to ADISCO and AUGUSCO to meet them if they consider themselves worthy opponents in the inter-schools golfing league. These games are being organized in the spirit of promoting the game of golf among Corporate Ghana as well as with the ultimate objective of introducing golf to the youth as a sport worth considering at an early stage in life.

The team members for the Odade3 squad were: Frank Adu, Mawuli Ababio, Nana Darkwa, Rene Gameli-Kwame, Edem Oshew, Alex Fiagome, Kwasi Asiedu, Michael Darko, Kofi Adjei, Ben Adu-Owusu, Kwame Djan, Matthias Dorfe,Naustadtt, Jonatham Ankrah, Yoku Korsah, Nii Odoi, Michael Oben Appiah, Boris (Associate), Muyiwa (Associate), Charles Ofori(Associate) and Supporting Pastor (Rev.
