Bose Kamphulusa wins Standard Bank golf


Blantyre Sports Club (BSC) Ladies Section Golf Captain, Bose Kamphulusa, emerged winner of the Standard Bank Ladies Golf tournament on Saturday.

Men were also allowed to participate in the tournament as a way of enhancing co-existence among all players.

During the tournament, Kamphulusa, playing off handicap 26, shot 96 gross and 70 net to emerge winner whereas second-placed Sharon Marques, playing off handicap 26, scored 97 gross and 71 net.


Third-placed Doreen Kavala, playing off handicap 21, scored 100 gross and 77 net.

Former BSC Ladies Section Captain, Connie Karuku, dominated the subsidiary prizes when she won both the longest drive on hole 17 and nearest to the pin on hole five.

Kamphulusa said she was encouraged with her performance considering that this was her third year since she started playing golf.


“I was calm and composed and this helped me to maintain my focus. I had a wonderful time together with my playing partners. I would also like to thank Standard Bank for supporting ladies golf. This is the first time in two years that the bank has sponsored golf at this course [BSC],” she said.

In the men’s section, Klema Hau, playing off handicap 13, scored 82 gross and 69 net to emerge winner and was followed on second position by Chimdima Mhango who was playing off handicap 11 and scored 97 gross and 71 net.

Emmanuel Nanthuru, playing off handicap 23, finished third.

In subsidiary prizes, Goodwin Chimseu hit the longest drive on hole number two whereas Sam Karuku stunned fellow golfers when he hit the nearest to the pin on hole 12.

Standard Bank Company Secretary and Legal Counsel, Etness Chanza, said they organised the tournament to support women just like the bank supports other noble causes.

“As a bank, we dedicate the month of March to women because the International Day of Women falls on March 8. So we felt sponsoring ladies’ golf during this month would be the right thing to do,” Chanza said.

The event attracted 56 golfers
