Golfers will take to the Lusignan Greens this Saturday when the sixth annual El Dorado Golf Tournament tees off from 12:30h.
El Dorado Rum Brand Manager Maria Munro, at a brief press conference on Monday, June 4, noted that Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) and El Dorado over the years have been supportive of many sports in Guyana and the company commits to continue in this vein as it sees sports as a healthy form of development and entertainment.
Despite persistent rainy weather over the past month, enthusiasm is electric as golfers look forward to this annual open. Apart from the potential action set to be on show, the Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) will have a raffle for players and the public.
El Dorado will give away hampers while an e-ticket can be obtained from the LGC Facebook page, or from any Club member; it is adequate to give you a coupon which you fill out, then place in a box for the raffle.
Free samples of Gin and 15-Year Old Rum will be available to players and the public. Also, part of this year’s sponsorship award will be the El Dorado 15-Year rum, rated the best rum in the world at the International Wine and Spirit Competition four years running.
Previous years’ winners of the El Dorado Open include: 2012 – Carlos Adams 66, Kishan Bacchus 68, Brian Hackett 68; 2013 – Troy Cadogan 66, Christine Sukhram 70, Brian Hackett 71, Gavin Todd 71; 2014 – Mohanlall Dinanauth 69, Dr Philbert London 69, Joaan Deo 71; and for, 2015 – Parmanand “Max” Persaud 61, Patanjalee “Pur” Persaud 64, Kishan Bacchus 66, and Troy Cadogan 66.
