18th Annual Duke of Edinburgh Semi-Finals Charity Golf Tourney was a success

EIGHTY four players took part in the 18th annual Duke of Edinburgh Semi-Finals Charity Golf Tournament at Ocean Club Golf Course in support of the Governor General Youth Awards Programme.

Returning as a platinum sponsor was Aliv, along with the help of gold sponsor Bahamas Food Services and other major sponsors, including Tyreflex Motors, Graycliff, and John Bull.

Atlantis was able to donate $45,000 to the Governor General Youth Awards Programme (GGYA).

Over the last decade plus their collective contribution is approaching the million-dollar mark.

While the considerable charitable donation is the most important aspect of the tournament, there is another major incentive for the players - a chance to represent The Bahamas at the Duke of Edinburgh Cup Finals in Windsor, Great Britain.

The all-expense-paid trip to the UK September 30 to October 4 includes accommodations, flights, meals and golf at top courses.

The event is capped off with the awards dinner held at Windsor Castle and attended by a member of the Royal family.

Winning the event and travelling to the UK to represent The Bahamas were the father/son team of Phil and Spencer Andrews representing Team Bahamas Waste.

In second place and also travelling to represent are Ryan Knowles and Patrick Knowles representing Team Tyreflex/Star Motors.
