Tema ready for Ghana Open golf

The management of the Tema Country Golf club is working around the clock to get the course in good shape ahead of the 85th Ghana Open Championship slated for this weekend.

Captain of the club, Joseph Nettey, said after consistent action on the course and given that the Ghana Open Championship was the biggest event on the golf calendar in the country, it was important to ensure that the course was in very good shape for an enjoyable competition.

In the men’s handicap event, Samuel Tettey, who played with handicap 10 finished first with a net score of 140 followed by Alian Sikan 146 while Elias K. who played with handicap 11 came third with a net score of 147.

Bryan Cox playing with handicap 22 won the men’s special group with a score of 139 followed by Chris Aidoo scored 143 with his handicap of 25 143. Joseph Tieku’s handicap 24 only helped him to the third position with a score of 144.

Leticia Amponsah-Mensah registered her name in the competition’s history books when she won the ladies’ scratch event with a net score of 157 displacing favourites Constance Awuni and Mona Captan who followed in that order with a net score of 165 and 170 respectively.

On the other hand, Adelaide Owusu Adjapong was the surprise winner in the ladies’ handicap event when she returned a net score of 148 to beat Mercy Werner and Elizabeth Captan who scored 150 and 151 respectively to finish in that order.
