Defending champ Maxwin among field of 75 golfers

9th February, 2018

By UMESH RAJAN

KOTA KINABALU: As many as 75 junior golfers are set to take part in the 16th SGCC Junior Open Championship this weekend at the Sabah Golf and Country Club (SGCC), near here.

SGCC Deputy President, Danny Lim when met on Thursday said that the number includes defending boys’ overall champion, Maxwin Chiew representing Sutera Harbour Golf and Country Club.

“However in this 16th edition, Maxwin will face tough challenges from the likes of upcoming state junior talents Christopher James, Neil Bainon and Hissard Tambakau.

“Despite the tournament not being held during the school holiday period, we almost reached the initial target of 80 participants. We thank all the parents for their support in allowing their children to compete in the tournament.

Danny said this during a courtesy visit to the Youth and Sports Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Datuk Awang Damit Awang Anak at Wisma Muis in Sembulan, yesterday.

A total of four categories are being contested in the tournament to be held from February 10-11 namely Group A (16-18 years), Group B (13-15 years), Group C (10-12 years) and the newly introduced this year, Group D for juniors under the age of 9 years’ old.

SGCC Captain, Ng Loong Fah said that the Group D introduced for the tournament’s 16th edition will only be strictly open to SGCC junior golfers where they will play on a specially prepared short course.

“Whereas Group C will play only nine holes for both the first and second day while the two other groups will play the full course,” he said.

Ng added that the course is in fairly good condition with all the preparations going as planned despite rainy weather for the past couple of days.
