Five Ghanaian lady golfers left good footprints in this year’s West and Central African Challenge Trophy, WCACT, held at Ikeja in Nigeria recently.

Margaret Oduro (Northern Zone), Felicity Okyei-Gyeabour (Royal Golf Club, Kumasi), Constance Awuni (Royal Golf Club), Leticia Amponsah-Mensah (Celebrity Golf Club) and Esther Amedzro (Achimota Golf Club) produced a spirited performance to finish second behind host nation Nigeria in the prestigious competition.

Drawing positives from the competition, the leader of the Ghanaian delegation, Madam Amedzro, who is also the president of the Ghana Ladies Golf Union (GLGU), said: “Besides the high level of competitiveness, the event further strengthened the already healthy relationship existing between the two countries.

We hope to return home next time after the 2021 WCACT with the ultimate prize. “We thank all who made the trip possible, particularly the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II (owner of the Royal Golf Club), and his wife, Lady Julia (Life Patron of the Ghana Ladies Golf Union) for their continued support for Team Ghana Lady Golfers,” she said .
