A record 152 golfers from across the country participated in the 2020 edition of the CalBank Open Golf Championships, which concluded on Saturday, November 28, 2020 at the Achimota Golf Course. The event, which was originally scheduled for October 10 had to be pushed after heavy downpour rendered the course unplayable on the original day.
The Ghanaian-owned bank organised the event as part of its annual strategy of empowering both professional and amateurs in the golf fraternity. Some of the finest golfers from all the golf clubs in the country participated in the 18-hole competition.
Edward Abrokwah emerged winner of the men’s Group A, playing a gross score of 40 points (hcp 12), while Aaliyah Iddriss picked up the trophy for the Ladies Group A with a gross score of 39 (hcp 15).
