We are looking forward to a successful 12th national tournament in this series. The tournament will run from Sunday the 5th of May to Sunday the 12 of May with the professional competition being played on the last four days from Thursday the 9th of May through to Sunday the 12th of May,” he said at the press launch of the FBC Zimbabwe Open last week.

“We are most grateful to our sponsors FBC Holdings and their partners who have committed their premier brands to our national premier golf tournament.

“We take this national event to showcase golf being played at world class level in the hope that this will inspire our young up and coming golfers to attain the highest level in golf. The Zimbabwe Golf Association (ZGA) has the mandate to develop golf at an amateur level throughout the country and in this regard, we do not miss any opportunity to ensure some of the proceeds from our national event are channeled toward golf development through the ZGA,” Gwata said.
