City of Harare won the inaugural Zimbabwe InterCity Golf Championship which was held in Gweru at the Gweru Gold Course at the weekend.
Hosts Gweru came second with Zvishavane Town Council coming third.
City of Harare team captain Engineer Norman Karidza said their victory was not a fluke but a result of hard works as they had thoroughly prepared for the tournament.
“We took this tournament seriously from the beginning and our preparations were thorough. We had good team work with all the members of the team all supporting each other. I would also like to applaud the City of Harare officials and administrators who accompanied the team to Gweru for showing their tremendous support towards the development of the sport in the city,” Karidza said.
Tournament Director Ephraim Mashingaidze said they were happy with the outcome of the inaugural tournament and were looking forward towards hosting two events next season.
“This event was phenomenal. The stakeholders really liked it such that we are going to have two tournaments next year onne in March in Harare and another in Gweru in October. Teams have already confirmed their participation for the two tournaments next year,” Mashingaidze said.
Major partner of the tournament, Old Mutual has also pledged support for the two editions which are going to be held next year.
“Tournaments of this magnitude are fertile grounds for business and social engagement. Such gatherings provides opportunities for local authorities and other stakeholders to network and create business opportunities through golf,” said Old Mutual representative
