Guyana Open golf tournament set for November 3-4
Top golfers from Guyana and overseas will converge at the Lusignan Golf Course on the weekend of November 3-4 to compete in the prestigious Guyana Open golf tournament.
According to the Lusignan Golf Club, a full field of 100 players is expected to compete for top honours at the two-day event. For the first time, the Club is looking to stream the event live, as well as create “a pleasantly memorable, refreshing and captivating experience.”
Apart from the on-field action, the Club will cater for over 300 persons, including players, diplomats, ministers of government and special invitees at an invitation-only cocktail reception on the eve of the tournament.
The Course will be closed for regular play on November 2 to facilitate the smooth hosting of the Guyana Open. It will re-open on November 6.
The Medal Play tournament will be played over 36 holes with action starting at 05:10h on each day. Players will compete in three flights- the A flight (0-9 handicap), B flight (10-18 handicap) and C flight (19-28 handicap).
The first 100 players will be accepted, with entrance fee pitted at $25,000 for local members, $30,000 for foreign members and $40,000 for non-members. VIP tickets are also available for $10,000, which includes food and drink and use of the temporary VIP area.
