Thirteen was a lucky number for 25 seasoned and budding golfers who walked away with awards after the Bahamas Hotel Association's 13th annual golf tournament at the Ocean Club, Paradise Island.
Despite the threat of inclement weather, a record number of 104 golfers registered to claim bragging rights while helping to raise over $20,000 for student scholarships and a range of programmes which the BHA is doing in the nation's schools.
"We are most appreciative of the tremendous support from our members, friends of BHA, and of course the golfers for supporting this year's tournament," said BHA president Stuart Bowe.
"The turnout was fantastic. It will go a long way next year toward matching and we hope exceeding the record 12 students who were awarded scholarships this year as a result of previous efforts. The tournament and our auctions have helped to put 81 young Bahamians through college during the past year with scholarships valued at $287,000," Bowe added.
Tournament organisers Fred Lunn, John Spinks, Ted Adderley, Nelson O'Kelley and Billy Lee commended the golfers for their support.
The winners of this year's tournament were announced during an awards ceremony following the tournament, sanctioned by the Bahamas Golf Federation.
Capturing first place was the team of Peter Muscroft and Doug Cowper which was sponsored by Royal Star Assurance.
