“It is in pursuit of this commitment that we are proud to be associated with the development of golf in this country through the Achimota Golf Club. This sport, introduced in the country during the colonial era in the early part of the 20th century, has steadily gained recognition and participation beyond Accra to other parts of the country. With the quite extensive walking that is associated with a single game, golf is particularly good for our hearts, and I hope many more of us will take this rather enjoyable sport up” she expressed.

She expressed her delighted that over 100 golfers registered for this year’s tournament, out of which MTN rewarded 12 in various categories in the tournament’s  2nd edition.

“Nonetheless, we wish to assure you all that MTN is unwavering in its pursuit of a strategic, mutually beneficial relationship with golf as a sport” she added.
