KUCHING: Response for the Damai Team Match Play Golf Tournament 2019 at Damai Golf and Country Club (DGCC) is encouraging but limited slots are still available for those who are interested.

This was announced by DGCC’s general manager, Roslan Mohd Salleh who said so far 13 teams had registered their participation although the closing date for entries is February 10.

“The event is popular among our club members and also those from outside because it is basically an inter-team double knockout event whereby all the participating teams can compete with one another during the opening rounds,” he said.

“We have targeted 16 teams but so far 13 of the available slots had been taken up,” Roslan said on the event which is expected to tee off on Feb 23.

He added that the event is expected to be competitive because many local golfers have been registered by the participating teams and they are in the fray for the attractive prizes.

“We expect the team match play event will also encourage the golfers to take part in the coming two-men Texas Scrabble Golf Tournament which is to be held here in the second half of this year,” he said.

Meanwhile, response for the Damai Birthday Boy (BB) Golf Tournament 2019 was encouraging with over 50 golfers taking part in the event which was introduced for the first time at the club.

According to Roslan, the event aims to gather all of the club members who are sharing the same birthdays in the respective month of the year and to foster cordial relations among them.

“It is a good way for all of our club members to gather and play golf in order to commemorate their birthdays which are being shared by others,” Roslan said on the event which is expected to attract more entries in the coming months.
