 Ndola Golf Club toasts 100 Years Milestone

By Mercy Chewe
The Ndola Golf Club is this weekend holding the centenary celebrations.

Established in 1921, Ndola is the third oldest golf club after Livingstone and Kasama.

The club started with a golf course of nine holes that increased over the years to the current 18 holes.

Ndola Golf Club is celebrating the 100 Years anniversary with an invitational tournament set for next Sunday in which over 100 golfers are expected to fight for honours at the 18-holes golf course.

Club Chairman Ron Bouverie said Ndola Golf Club will also unveil a plaque on Monday as part of the centenary celebrations.

“The club has now turned 100 years,” Bouverie told journalists in Ndola.

“And which of course is a great achievement, a great milestone that we are still operational, we are still thriving. We could be a lot better but the club I think has done very well,” he said.

Ndola Golf Club became the first Zambian club to host a professional tournament back in 1954.
