    19th Makovah Golf Tournament preparations a gear up


    MASVINGO-Preparations for the annual Makovah Memorial Golf Tournament in remembrance of two of Masvingo keen golfers Edward and John Makovah who died in 1999 and 2013 respectively are in full swing, Farai Makovah the family spokesperson told The Mirror.
    Makovah said the fees for the tournament have been pegged at $200 per individual and the event will run from 27 to 29 September and the proceeds will be channelled towards Copota School, Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Fund and the Murambwi Foundation which pays examination fees for the less privileged at Mucheke High School where the Makovahs went to school.
    Bannockburn Bricks and Exor Holdings among other organisations will be sponsoring the tournament which will be played on individual stableford over two days at Masvingo Golf Club (Stableford is a  scoring system in golf which, rather than counting the total number of strokes taken, involves scoring points based on the number of strokes taken at each hole. The objective in Stableford, therefore, is to have the highest score).
    “In a bid to raise funds for charity, the tournament will be punctuated by Player Auction, Charity Auction and raffle tickets where various prizes will be won,” said Farai Makovah.
    He added that they have extended invitations to golfers and non-golfers throughout the country since the event is mainly for charity and they are expecting not less than 80 participants.
    “We are very excited to be hosting the prestigious Makovah Memorial Tournament as it is a mark of approval for our course and organising prowess. We would like to call upon individuals and the corporate world to support this noble cause for Masvingo,” said Sternly Kondongwe the Masvingo Golf Club Captain.
    Masvingo City council housing officer Roberto Murimoga won the tournament last year.
