Nkana Golf Club almost ready for Zambia Open

Sports Nkana Golf Club almost ready for Zambia Open

2017 Zambia Open Golf Championship Organising Committee chairman Emmanuel Mutati says Nkana Golf Club is almost ready to stage the event.

The event bankrolled by Mopani and Redpath takes place from 28 May to 4 June in Kitwe.

The Zambia Golf Union last month shifted the championship to Nkana after broke Nchanga Golf Club in Chingola withdrew from hosting the event.

Speaking when Stanbic Bank donated K300, 000 towards the event on Wednesday, Mutati said the club is finalising the improvement of the golf course.

He added that his committee is also seeking to adjust the top prize money to over $150, 000.

“Over the last three years we have been working on the golf course. We are now just doing the minor touches to ensure that the course is fine,” Mutati said.

He also hailed Stanbic Bank for contributing K300, 000 towards the Zambia Open.

“I would like to thank Stanbic Bank for choosing to partner with us once again after supporting us in the highly successful 2014 and 2015 Zambia Open tournaments,” Mutati said.

Stanbic Bank head of Corporate and Investment Banking Helen Lubamba pledged the firm’s support towards sports activities.

“We are a bank that works with the community. We plan to continue participating in promoting this event,” Lubamba said.
