Over 150 Golfers from across the country over the weekend congregated at the Celebrity Golf Course for a day’s tournament as part of celebrations marking the 25th Anniversary of South Africa’s Freedom day.

The Tournament which is the fifth edition also brought together some South African and Ghanaian businesses to fraternize and strategize on how to work better together.

After the tight competition among the Golfers, Floria Hurtubise came first with 40 points in the Women Group A category while Maureen Akuaku won the Women Group B category with 39 points.

For the Men event, Daniel Addo won 41 points in the Group b category and Reindolf Amankwah came first in the Group B category with 40 points.

Speaking at the event, South African High Commissioner to Ghana, Lulana Xingwana, said, “I am very elated the golf competition as part of our historic Freedom Day Celebrations has grown stronger and thanks to all Golfers and businesses that are represented here.”

On his part, the CEO of Global Media Alliance, organizers of the event, said, told participants to look beyond the golf competition and rather focus on maintaining peace and fostering unity since that is the hall mark of the Freedom Day celebrations.

We hope that Ghana and South Africa will work together to establish joint businesses that can grow both economies as we pursue peace, unity and the preservation of our African heritage, she said.
