Over 80 golfers are expected to take part in the inaugural Mdina Golf Tournament at Blantyre Sports Club (BSC) today.
The tournament will be sponsored by South Africa-based Tiwone Mdina, who runs Mdina Engineering and Business Solutions.
BSC golf captain Keta Mulwafu yesterday said all is set for the tournament.
“Attracting over 70 golfers for a start, is quite impressive. We are also excited with the prizes which are on offer,” he said.
On his part, Mdina, who for years has been a major chess sponsor, said he accepted to sponsor the competition having been swayed with the proposal that the golf committee put forward.
“It was a brilliant proposal such that I did not have to give it a second thought.
“We [also] want to give major stakeholders a platform to interact and also showcase their skills on the golf course.
“This is once off sponsorship we don’t know what the future holds,” he said.
