AFTER SUCCESSFULLY organising the second edition of the Nxt Gent Hackers golf tourney at the Achimota Golf Club last Friday, the organisers say they are planning to go international next year.
According to the Nxt Gen Group, they would invite amateur golfers from the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of American (USA) to participate in the tourney.
This year’s edition saw over 60 Nigerian golfers participating in the tournament but it was Michael Agbodzah, a Ghanaian playing off handicap 28, who emerged winner after recording 66 net beating off competition from Isaac Asante’s 71 net and Michael Darko’s 75 net respectively.
The Hackers golf tournament was meant for beginners who want to be golfers and members of Nxt Gen invited friends, family and business executives to play golf, have fun and network.
Captain of the Nxt Gent Group, Michael Darko, told Starr FM Sports exclusively that “the objective of the group is to provide platform for young businessmen in Ghana and globally who are passionate about golf.
“We are up to about 20 members and we have Nigerians here and we want to bring people from UK and the USA. We look forward to growing the numbers; we want to grow the membership of Achimota Golf Club and we want more young people to join the club.”
According to the captain, the proceeds from this year’s tournament will be donated to a charity home called Asaid Foundation in the Central Region.”
The well patronised competition received sponsorship support from uniBank and Star Assurance,
