The 2021 Gold Fields PGA Qualifiers comes off at the Achimota Golf course from March 17 to March 19, 2021, organisers have announced.

The Director of Operations for PGA of Ghana, Mr Ahmed Padori in an interview with Accra-based Power FM said 24 players will qualify in the first and second phases at the Achimota Golf Course and the Celebrity Golf Course for the main championship later this year at Damang.

He said the date for the second phase of qualifying at the Celebrity Golf Course in Sakumono would be announced in due course.

He said Gold Fields Ghana Limited has put at stake fantastic prizes for the players who will excel, although in golf you do not get paid in any qualifiers.

He also expects dignitaries such as the President of Ghana Golf Association, Mr Mike Aggrey to grace the qualifier.

According to him, although golf is not a contact sport, all the COVID-19 safety protocols will be observed to curb the spread of the virus.

He saluted the Achimota Golf Course for their acceptance to host the event when the PGA approached them and also thanked the Ghanaian media for their continuous support.
