The husband and wife pair of Dr Geoffrey De Caires and Margaret De Caires emerged overall winners of the inaugural Sir Charles Williams Invitational Golf Tournament at the Apes Hill Club, last weekend.
The 36-hole two-day golf event attracted a field of 64 golfers from Britain, the United States, Canada and the Caribbean for the Charles Williams Trophy.
The Decaires led the first day with an impressive “better ball” stableford score of 45 points. The team went from strength to strength and came in ahead of the field on the second day – taking the trophy with a team score of 119.
Second place went to a well deserving Steve Buckmaster and Ansari Muhajiri with a team score of 114.
Other notable players were West Indies coach Ottis Gibson, who joined forces with Sandy Lane golf manager and his former Ellerslie cricket teammate, Elvis Medford to win the highest points prize on the first day.
Apes Hill Club manager and PGA golf professional Ben Hatch said invitations were in high demand for the tournament, which has now become their flagship golfing event.
“It is now the most prestigious event on the Apes Hill golfing calendar. We had a number of international golfers and have set a new standard for tournament golf in the Caribbean.
“The word has already gone out and hopefully next year, we would have even more celebrities,” Hatch told NATION?SPORT. (PR/EZS)
