See below press release by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation

A Canadian-based Guyanese family is embarking on a new project titled, ‘Timehri Sands Golf & Country Club (G&CC),’ which is expected to come on stream soon, with works set to begin in January 2024.

The aim is to expand the golfing experience in Guyana with a new nine-hole golf course and golf practice facility.

Today, September 21, 2023, saw the signing of the lease for this project at the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission.

Conceptualised by Christopher and Hess DaSilva, this facility will be located near the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

According to the DaSilvas, it will provide easy access for both local golfers and international travellers with the added opportunity to introduce golf to new markets within the Guyanese population.

They added that the Golf Course will be modern, built on a fast and firm sand-based property ideally suited for golf. This will promote a traditional ground game, playing over many rolling and bumpy contours and undulations.

There will be three sets of tee decks per hole, allowing all levels of golfers to play the golf course to develop and challenge their game.

The DaSilvas underscored that the emphasis will be on a fun experience, yet it will be strategic in design, with challenges for all golfers.

Additionally, the Golf Practice Facilities will provide a Golf Range, Putting Green, and Chipping Zone for both learning and practicing the game.

Overall, the new golf development will provide visually stunning views over a traditional heathland-style golf course.

Timehri Sands G&CC will provide a golfing destination that will enhance all golfers’ experiences and provide new opportunities within the Guyanese community.

    When this facility is complete, just don’t hit any planes in for landing or going out. And be careful, the CJIA is now made with lots of glass, as well as that hotel nearby and many passengers in/outside the airport. Please put up large visible sign, GOLF COURSE NEARBY- WATCH OUT FOR WAYWARD GOLF BALLS.
