Alhaji Ahmed Padori


Preparations are underway at the Celebrity Golf Club at Sakumono, Accra, which will be the venue for the last championship in the Road to Damang golf series after some thrilling competitions at the Royal Golf Club in Kumasi and Achimota Golf Club.

Known as the PGA Masters, it will be the last flagship tournament scheduled to take place from November 7 to 10.

The championship will afford golfers the final opportunity to qualify for the Damang tournament in the Western Region.

Expected to be fierce after the dramatic event at Achimota where Alfred Kwame Nuamey went against all odds and won the championship, over 70 golfers including some top golfers are expected to compete and play 72 holes over four days.

Speaking from his base in the United Kingdom, the Operations Director of PGA Ghana, Alhaji Ahmed Padori indicated that he is expecting a fierce and exciting outcome by close of the tournament, with the golfers aware of what is at stake for grabs.

According to him, the players on the border line of players’ ranking would not want to drop out, while those outside equally want to get through.

The Operations Director of the PGA also expressed gratitude to all stakeholders who have greatly impacted the Road to Damang from January 2023 to date.

On the upcoming PGA elections, Alhaji Padori wished all members who are vying for various positions to become executives a successful contest.

Meanwhile, PGA has joined a list of mourners in Ghana and beyond following the demise of Samuel Kwabena Appiah (a.k.a man dey for water never fear cold). He was a legend of the game whose prowess brought about some positive innovation to the game.

The late SK Appiah was a professional golfer and contributed immensely toward the development of professional golf in the country.

In a short tribute, the PGA indicated that they are saddened by the death of their former member, and extended their heartfelt condolence to the family.
