Mzuzu Golf Course is set to reopen after renovations which have taken three years.
Speaking in an interview, on Friday, Mzuzu Golf Club president Peter Chipeta said rehabilitation works are through.
And they would have opened for tournaments if it was not for Covid-19 outbreak.
He said: “We are done with rehabilitation work at the course. We already have sponsors in place for tournament, but due to Covid-19 outbreak, we have put that on hold.
“Otherwise, we are happy that the course is now back to its good shape.”
Sunbird Tourism plc has taken control of the club premises that includes the golf course, the building that houses the club bar and restaurant to reinforce the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in 1979 by the company and the golf club members.
According to the terms of the MoU the memorandum, the club members are mainly responsible for organising golf tournaments.
All along, Mzuzu Golf club members were in-charge of all the operations of the club, including the premises.
As of now, the club has over 35 registered members.
Golf Union of Malawi president Hudson Kantwanje has since commended Mzuzu Golf Club executive for making sure that the course which caters for golfers in Mzuzu is back to operation.
“This is something that we were looking forward to. It is important that golfers in that part have an operational course,” he said.
