MASVINGO The Makovah Memorial Charity Golf Tournament which is now on the national calendar is back after a two year hiatus following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 which restricted large gatherings among other things.

The 20th edition of Makovah Charity golf tournament will be held this weekend (23-25 September) at Masvingo Golf Club in memory of two prominent sons of Masvingo Edward and John Makovah who were keen golfers and philanthropists in their own right.

The amateur invitational tournament is open to all golfers and is expected to attract over 80 players from throughout the country and Masvingo in particular.

Farai Makovah who is organising the tournament told the Midweek Watch that the proceeds of the charity golf will be channeled to Masvingo Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Fund, Capota School for the Blind and Murambwi Foundation which pays examination fees for the less privileged at Mucheke High School where the two grew up and went to school as well.

“This event has been held religiously every year for the past 20 years now, but was disrupted by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in the past two years. This year we are hoping for a big turnout as we resume the tournament,” said Farai Makovah.

He went on to say that by playing golf it is in memorial of Edward Makovah and John Makovah who were keen golfers and friends to many in Masvingo and the entire business community.

“Lots of prizes are lined up including raffles, auctions and other fund raising activities with all proceeds going to charity,” said Makovah.
