Prashad, the Lusignan Golf Clubís captain, won with a gross 75, handicap 09 and net 66 from Dave Robinson who had a gross 86, handicap 17 and 69.

Charles Cutshall who placed third, was edged by Robinson on the count back. Cutshall had a gross 77, handicap 08 and net 69.

The presentation of prizes were done by GT&Tís representative Audrey Parker who in her remarks explained her companyís commitment to not only golf, but sports generally in Guyana.

Parker assured the clubís president Mike Brassington, that GT&T was proud to be associated with golf and was grateful for the invitation to sponsor the tournament.
