Golfers raised $16,250 for their 2015 Pacific Games levy during a fundraising dinner at the Fiji Golf Club last Friday.

Team manager Ofa Tabunakawai confirmed eight golfers would take part in Port Moresby,  Papua New Guinea with coach Graeme Bell.

“Right now we have a squad of 12 men and six women,”Tabunakawai said.

“We want to thank everyone for their contribution towards this fundraising drive which assisted us in collecting our levy.

“We sold lottery tickets given by Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee and our aim was to sell 500 books so that it can cover 70 per cent of our levy.

“But we managed to sell 400 books which covered 50 per cent of our levy and we are grateful to all our supporters.”

Tabunakawai also acknowledged Mark One Apparel Limited for donating their uniforms.

Fiji amateur champion Olaf Allen Junior, James Pridgeon, Mohammed Rizwan, Rohit Chandra, Ufemia Naisara, Merelita MacCarthy and Selai Pridgeon are all vying for a spot in team.

Meanwhile, the National Golf Association of Fiji’s Black Friday ambrose tournament was won by Team Pacific Harbour.

James and Selai Pridgeon carded 55.9 points ahead of Team RFMF (56.9) and the Naisara family finished third with 57.1 pts.

Nearest to the pin in hole No.2 was Ratu Isoa Gavidi, Kelera Watling (5), Keshwa Reddy (12) and Nigel Goundan (16).
