Mackwoods Ladies Strokeplay Golf C’ship from June 25

Victoria Golf and Country Club in Kandy is to host the Mackwoods Ladies Strokeplay Golf Championship 2010 from June 25 to 27. The Mackwoods Ladies Golf Championship is open to all Amateur Lady Golfers who are members of any recognised Golf Club and have certified LGU, USGA or Club Handicap.

The Mackwood Challenge Trophy will be awarded to the player returning the lowest aggregate gross score over 54 holes. The winner last year was Ms. Jacky Dias and the runner-up was Mrs. Suwaneetha Selvaratnam.

The tournament was inaugurated in 1974 and since then it was sponsored by Mackwoods Limited over the years in memory of the first Sri Lankan Chairman of the company, Mr. N. S. O. Mendis.

Since then the tradition has been followed by his daughter late Mrs. Sriyani Nonis and the grandchildren. Presently, Dr. Chris Nonis, Chairman and Mrs. Nirmalee Samaratunge, Co-Chairman and Jt. Managing Director, continue to support the Sri Lanka Golf Union in their long-standing sponsorship of this event.

The Mackwoods Strokeplay Golf Championship is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the ladies golfing calendar deriving enthusiastic participation. It is organised by the Sri Lanka Golf Union, the governing body for golf in Sri Lanka.

The players will also vie for the Nuwara Eliya Golf Challenge Cup, run concurrently with the above tournament which will be awarded to the player with the lowest aggregate nett score over 54 holes. Also the Bronze Cup for the high handicap golfers and many daily prizes will be awarded too. An exciting weekend of golf waits at the picturesque Victoria Golf and Country Club at Digana, Kandy.
