Bullets chairperson Malinda Chinyama said they were advised by the authorities at Blantyre Sports Club (BSC) that they could not proceed with the event because of the mourning period.
“But again, they were considerations that there is the Zone VI golf tournament going on in Lilongwe as well as the TNM Malawi Open Championship this weekend in Lilongwe.
“So, most golfers whom we had planned to invite for this course would not have made it, so we decided to postpone it,” said Chinyama.
He said they are consulting BSC officials so that they can host the tournament at the end of May.
“We want a day when we should be guaranteed a full field because this is a fund-raising event. It is one of the biggest events we are planning for the year, so we do not want to take chances,” he said.
Bullets plan to raise about K40 million (about $240 000) this year through a number of fund-raising activities. Already, they have raised over K5 million (about $30 000) from a dinner and dance; and a number of music shows at their clubhouse.
