Ebo Da Costa has won the Men’s Group A of the 2019 MTN Invitational Golf tournament held at the Celebrity Club at Sakumono.
Played at various golf clubs across the country in the year, the MTN sponsored programme travelled to Bogoso, Tema and Tafo before making its final stop on the greens of Sakumono, much to the delight of MTN CEO, Selorm Adadevoh.
“It is indeed a delight to meet and interact with you today after the last engagement at the Tafo Golf Club to celebrate Okyenhene’s 20th anniversary. My gratitude goes out to all of you for honouring our invitation to play the last game in this year’s MTN invitational tournaments for 2019,” said Mr. Adadevoh in his speech.
“The MTN Invitational Golf Tournament has proven to be a worthy opportunity for networking and providing leads for business expansion. It keeps growing and we continue to see active participation. I can only hope that these engagements continue to get better and better,” he added.
