70 plus for family tourney

Social Share

The Barbados Golf Club’s tee-off for the new season featured the third annual Sagicor General Family Championships last Sunday at Durants.
More than 70 players turned out for the event that saw golf-playing mothers, fathers, daughters and sons in fun-filled rivalry over 18 holes for attractive prizes provided by the sponsors.
The father and son category featured some of the keenest rivalry on the greens and fairways. In the end, Director of Public Prosecutions Charles Leacock and his son Donald, a former Barbados junior captain, staved off their rivals to win the division with a gross score of 71.
They edged top Barbados player James Johnson and his father Ralph to emerge winners, after both teams shot 71. The Johnsons were pipped on the countback system as the Leacocks registered 35 on the back-nine holes, while the Johnsons posted 36.
President of Sagicor General Insurance, David Alleyne, also took part in the tournament, playing with his 13-year-old son Tristan. He praised local golf-playing families that supported the tournament.
“Participation was great and the tournament provided a good start to the new year. This is another example of Sagicor General’s commitment to supporting wholesome activities across Barbados and other Caribbean territories in which we operate.
It also adds to the range of sports and other activities that we sponsor,” Alleyne said.
Sagicor General’s vice-president for marketing, Mark Blakeley, teamed up with his wife Leiza for the championships and got on the podium as they won the net prize, posting 68, in the husband and wife category. (PR)
