Golf takes break until February

Teboho Molapo
MASERU — The golfing season is over for this year after the Father and Son Golf Challenge — a social event — which took place last Sunday at the Maseru Golf Club.
It means golfing action will resume next February at the earliest, after the postponement of the LCS-Multichoice golf tournament until next year because of logistical problems, including a lack of hotel accommodation for would-be participants.
“Between now and the end of the year, there is nothing that is planned,” Lesotho golf captain, Masuhla Leteka told the Sunday Express on Tuesday.
“We are looking at holding the Women’s Beginner’s Day early next year, around February or early March,” Leteka said.
Another event also in the pipeline is the LNDC Golf Day, which will take place in February.
“The event was supposed to be held this month but because of problems with logistics, it did not go ahead. But it will happen in February, even though a date has not been set,” Leteka said.
It has been a year of uncertainty in the Lesotho Golf Association, with a new executive board only taking charge in October after elections failed to take place in May.
However, the board will serve until April 2011, rather than the normal one-year term and it is hoped this will allow the association more scope to put its plans into practice.
The LGA’s biggest challenge remains getting sponsorship.
