R&A donates golf kit to Zambian clubs



THE world golf governing body R&A has donated equipment to seven clubs in Zambia and has offered training to improve standards in the country, says the Zambia Golf Union (ZGU) president Jason Kazilimani. Kazilimani told the Daily Nation yesterday that R&A made the donation during the Green Keepers workshop which was held at Chainama Hills golf club at which 12 teams participated. Kazilimani said the equipment donated would go a long way in improving golf standards in Zambia as the six clubs that benefited from the gesture were also trained on how to use the machines. “We had a national Green Keepers workshop at Chainama Hills Golf Club where A&R, the mother-body of golf in the world , who trained 12 clubs at which seven clubs were given equipment and taught on how to use  it and we believe this will go a long way in improving golf in the country,” Kazilimani said. And Kazilimani said ZGU will this month-end hold its annual general meeting (AGM) in Kabwe at which, among other things, the proposed constitution will be tabled for adoption after amendments. The event, which will be preceded by a golf tournament on 26th November, was expected to attract all clubs in Zambia. “We have an AGM slated for Kabwe on 27th November, 2016, and this will be preceded by the golf tournament which will be played at Kabwe Golf Club. “Among other items that will be on the agenda will be the adoption of the proposed constitution. We have just amended our constitution and it will be presented during the AGM for adoption,” he said.
