12 Saint Lucians Selected for EC Golf Championships

The St. Lucia Golf Association is please to announce that twelve of its Members have been selected to represent St. Lucia in the E.C.G.A. Championships.   The Players are:-

Men’s Team:  Romanus Inglis, Terry Verdant, Victor Charles, Mario Reyes (Team Captain)

Senior Men’s Team: Cliff Alcide, McHale Andrew, Milton McKenzie

Super Senior Men’s Team:   Kent Glace, Brad Paul

Ladies’ Team:   Debra Ross, Marisa Groenewald, Joan Paul

The Team will be sponsored by the St. Lucia Olympic Committee (Golf is now an Olympic Sport) Diamonds International who are supplying the Official Team Uniforms, Sandals Cap Estate Golf Club and the St. Lucia Golf Association.

On Saturday 10th. November Diamonds International, represented by Yaniv Gliksman, presented the team with their Team Shirts and Goodie Bags and wished them success.   Yaniv also announced that Diamonds International will be the named Sponsor for the St. Lucia Golf Association Monthly Medals for 2019.

This is the first time since 2012 that St. Lucia has been in a position to field a full team and Team Captain, Mario Reyes, advises that the players are very excited that they have been given the opportunity to represent their country in such numbers.

The 2017 Event was also scheduled to have been held in Anguilla but Hurricane Irma put paid to that plan and we are very fortunate that the island’s golf course and Cuisinart Hotel have recovered sufficiently to host the Competition this year.

St. Lucia is due to host the E.C.G.A. Championships in 2021 and it is hoped that the Greg Norman Championship Course at the Sandals Cap Estate Golf Club will be in prime condition for this prestigious event.
