National Golf Association of Fiji secretary Amitesh Chandra says the SGM is to complete the merger of the men’s and women’s associations.
“I request attendance from all golf clubs as this is going to be a very historic moment for golf in Fiji,” Chandra said.
The meeting will commence at 6pm.
Furthermore, the national squad has started their preparation for 2015 Pacific Games.
“The squad will be training under the guidance of coach Graeme Bell,” he said.
The NGAF has named the national team for the World Amateur Golf Teams Championship at Karuizawa, Japan on September 8 – 13.
The team has Olaf Allen Jnr, Sam Lee, Abid Hussein while Nadi fireman Anuresh Chandra is the non-travelling reserve.
“Anuresh was unlucky to miss out as this is all in routine as National Golf aims to build a very powerful team for 2015 in PNG. The team will continue to train until their departure for Japan and continue again upon arrival for PG 2015.”
Anuresh finished second equal in trials leading up to the selection, winner of the Fiji Amateur match play, second leading Fiji Amateur Fiji Open 2014.
Lee is the only player from Fiji to graduate from a golf college in USA.
