Coach calls for golf promotion
The National Golf Coach, Charles Farrar, has underscored the need for companies to join hands in promoting golf by supporting juniors` tournaments in the country.
Farrar made the appeal ahead of this year`s CBA Safari Open Golf winners awards presentation to be held today after a three-day gruelling encounter at the Dar es Salaam Gymkhana club.
He was speaking while launching the tournament shortly before teeing off.
The National Golf Coach told his audience that included invited guests and journalists that his club has embarked on the junior golf promotion as a way of identifying potential talents in the game.
He commended Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA) for responding to the call for donating prizes for the tournament`s winners.
He called on other companies to emulate the example set by CBA, to help develop the talents of juniors countrywide.
Earlier, the CBA Head of Marketing and Products, Abdallah Sanga, said his company had offered fantastic awards to winners whose prize-giving ceremony has been scheduled to take place at their club this afternoon.
Sanga said that the CBA Safari Open Golf had attracted more than 72 golfers, both amateurs and professionals.
He named the clubs that fielded contestants as Moshi TPC, Arusha, Morogoro, TPDF Lugalo and the hosts, Dar es Salaam Gymkhana club.
He said that the awards had been categorised for golfers who competed in 54 strokes and in handcap ranging from 10 to 18.
