Sanje Golf Club in clubhouse SOS

SANJE Golf Club in Mumbwa has appealed to the corporate world to help finish the construction of a new club house.
The new club house is at window level.
The club, owned by the Zambia Air Force, is also seeking course maintenance equipment to upgrade the nine-hole golf course.

Club captain Sydney Kabaso, who took advantage of the presence of Zambia Golf Union (ZGU) vice-president (South) Christopher Mulenga, also appealed for technical support to train the club’s juniors, who have exhibited potential to become great golfers.
During the club’s 36-hole tournament at the weekend, Kabaso also bemoaned the poor communication between Sanje and ZGU.
Club president Boniface Bwalya said the construction of the new club house has stagnated due to lack of funds.
And Mulenga commended the corporate world for coming to the aid of Sanje to ensure the club held its tournament successfully.
He urged the club to get ready for the web-based electronic handcapping system, currently being piloted at Lusaka Golf Club.
Mulenga said the electronic handcapping system would be rolled out throughout the country soon.
He bemoaned the poor performance by amateur golfers during the Zambia Open Golf championship at Lusaka Golf Club and Nkana in Kitwe.
Mulenga called for more game time for the amateurs to improve their performance and informed the gathering about opportunities for local golfers such as internships at South African academies.
Responding to the club’s request for course maintenance equipment and technical support for training of junior golfers, Mulenga said ZGU also depends on partners to survive.
He said last year, ZGU received golf equipment from Royal and Ancient of Saint Andrews which it distributed to the clubs that had requested for help and Sanje was not among the recipients because they did not submit their requirements.
The two-day Sanje Open golf tournament, won by Kabwe-based golfer Denmark Mulambo, who had 156 gross, was supported by a record 10 companies.
