Local golf is set to tee off for
another big competition next week.
The annual Caribbean Amateur Junior
Golf Championships take place 3-8 August in Freeport, Grand Bahamas in the
Bahamas. This year’s tournament will be at the Lucayan Country Club at the Our
Lucayan beach resort. The course covers around 6,000 yards and has been rated
as one of the top golf facilities in the Caribbean.
Cayman will compete against seven
other teams; Barbados, Jamaica, Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States,
Dominican Republic, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Trinidad.
Leading the Cayman squad will be
the resident pro golfer at the North Sound Golf Club Mike Touchette. He
recently gave national golf coach Kevin Mumford a helping hand in getting the national
adult golf team ready for this month’s Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships in
Barbados. Samantha Widmer had the best performance for Cayman. She won the
women’s individual stroke play category.
