Ben Arindell and Barry Clarke  emerged winners of the Barbados Golf Association (BGA)/Apes Hill Better-Ball Tournament which was contested on Saturday at the Apes Hill Golf Club.
The winners, who played well to stave off a competitive field, posted a  Stableford score of 47 points on the inviting St James course.
Their performance was three points better than Guy Roberts and Keith Loxton (44) and five better than third-placed Emir Uzunovic and Paul Alleyne (42).
Seventy two teams or 144 players, took part in the fundraising tournament which was organised by the Barbados Golf Association and featured a 1 p.m. shot-gun start.
Among other players collecting individual prizes for closest-to-the pin tee-shots on various testing holes, were Joe Harris, Paul Alleyne, Trenton Weekes, Barry Clarke and Ben Arindell.
Funds raised from the staging of the tournament are being used to assist the Barbados national senior team in attending the 2014 Caribbean Golf Championships in Puerto Rico in August.
Captain James Johnson thanked players and management and staff of the Apes Hill hosting club for contributing to a successful tournament.
“We had a full field and an enjoyable day of golf. Apes Hill are fantastic supporters of the BGA and we thank them for such support,” said Johnson.
Among the sponsors, who also contributed to the event were Banks, Sol, Trident Wines, Lucky Horseshoe, Mews restaurant and the Blue Room Bar.
PGA Professional at the Apes Hill Club, Ben Hatch said they were happy to support the BGA and the national team in their endeavours.
“It was quickly sold out and it was a great tournament . . . . We had some good scores and Mother Nature was kind to us,” said Hatch. (PR/BB)
