The Jaguar XJ will be placed at a par three hole number nine for a hole-in-one prize that has not been won for the past 25 years.
Alliance Motors general manager Andre Bonthuys, who presented the dummy cheque in Lusaka to local organizing committee chairman Roy Penney, said his company is proud to be part of the international golf competition.
“This year we are putting up the most expensive prize for a hole in one, a top range Jaguar. We hope we can break the 25-year drought of a hole in one. We are proud to be part of this tournament,” Bonthuys said.
Alliance Motors last year placed a Jaguar XF worth $ 87,050 vehicle for a hole-in-one. This is why the Zambia Sugar Open is constant on the annual Alliance Motors Calendar. We have consistently supported the tournament for the past five years.
And Penney said the money does not only benefit the staging of the tournament but filters through other developmental projects that the Zambia Golf Union runs throughout the country.
“We are grateful to the sponsors. We are getting better and better because of the support we are receiving. Without such partners, we cannot successfully host the tournament,” he said.
