The final berth of the 2016 TNM-sponsored ladies’ golf tournament tees off tomorrow at Blantyre Sports Club (BSC) with over 70 golfers ready for the showdown.
BSC’s Ladies’ Golf Captain, Connie Muguvu-Karuku, said all was set to wrap up the tournament.
“We are expecting a field of 70 golfers comprising ladies, juniors and some men. We are very grateful to TNM for their financial support as it has helped to develop the game for the ladies,” Karuku said.
“The BSC ladies` golf section grew by 11 members. The TNM sponsorship has helped grow the ladies’ golf section. More women are now coming forward.”
