first_imgBy Colin Bynoe JrThe Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) partnered with the Guyana National Newspapers Limited (GNNL) to run off a well-organized 100-ball cricket tournament in the Upper Corentyne area which saw No. 72 All Stars being victorious in the finals at the No. 72 “cut and load” ground on Sunday as they humbled Dukestown by 45 runs.The game was watched by a fair gathering of spectators which included Guyana Jaguars and West Indies ‘B’ player, Anthony Bramble and General Manager (ag) of Guyana Chronicle, Miss Donna Todd, who was accompanied by other staffers. They were all well entertained.The victorious No. 72 All Stars, after their win, sharing a moment with GNNL staff which included (ag) General Manager(ag), Donna Todd.In overcast conditions, the No. 72 “cut and load” ground, as it is called, was buzzing with excitement.Due to overnight rains which affected the playing conditions to some degree, the umpires decided to reduce the number of balls to 84.Dukestown won the toss and inserted No. 72 to take first strike. Opening batsman Ryan Ramdass rode his luck to belt an aggressive 43 not out off 20 deliveries; his knock was decorated with 4x6s and 2x4s.Ramdass was put down three times by the Dukestown fielders who seem to be dropping catches at will.Permeshwar Chatterpaul (21) assisted his team to a winning total of 103 when their 84 deliveries expired.Jermain Reid, who collected 3-10 for Duketown, was the most economical bowler.In between innings, spectators were vociferously making their predictions of a winner.Dukestown took to the crease with a sense of confidence but that confidence was erased in a matter of two deliveries.Pradeep Gobin, who took the new ball for No. 72 and bowling his left-arm swing from over the wicket, bowled a demoralizing first over.Gobin prized out three wickets in the first over that went for one run. As a result, this sent his team’s supporters into frenzy.Dukestown had no answers for No. 72 disciplined bowling as wickets fell ordinarily. They were eventually dismissed for 59 and fell short by 45 runs.Pradeep Gobin receives his player of the match trophy from a GNNL representative.Acting General Manager of GNNL, Miss Donna Todd, speaking at the presentation, praised the winning team for their efforts while she offered words of encouragement to Dukestown.Miss Todd implored the loosing team, “catches win matches and you dropped a lot today, so I encourage you to do some work on your fielding”.At the presentation, staffers of GNNL presented Pradeep Gobin, who was adjudged player of the match, with cash and a trophy while his team received the winner’s trophy and cash incentives for their victory.last_img read more

Here are a few of the things going on at the Wellington Golf Club on the west side of town…••••Tree planting —If you have been on the course last week, or have driven by, you may have noticed a group of trees being planted.The Wellington golf course is in the process of adding 25 to 30 trees, as it did in 2012. Over the past 10 years, the Wellington golf course has lost more than 100 trees, due to the natural maturation of several Oak trees and pine disease to evergreens.“We took out 125 stumps in November,” said Derek Harrison, Wellington golf course director. “A lot of them were huge trees that defined the character of the course over the years.”Harrison said the course is replacing those trees with maple, pin oaks, sweet gum and cedar trees – the kind that will grow quickly.“We lost some significant trees which separated hole 9 and 18,” Harrison said. “We are replacing them with nice sized trees in those spots. All this is being done through private donations.”••••New logo —After more than 25 years, the Wellington is getting a new logo.Harrison said the new logo was designed by Samson Ledesma of Wellington, replacing the older green logo. You will see the new bright maroon and orange logo on various golf balls, stationary, golf bags, shirts, hats, etc. The latest rage to hit golf courses recently is the poker chips.••••New promotion —Wellington Golf Club has become a member of the Sunflower Golf Trail – which is a consortium of 15 municipal courses across the state of Kansas.Now if you join the golf course as a member, you can golf out of town at participating courses for $20 for 18 holes of golf and cart.Those participating in the trail include: Carey Park in Hutchinson, Emporia Municipal, The Fort in Hays, Hesston Golf Park, Mariah Hills in Dodge City, Prairie Trails in El Dorado, Quail Ridge in Winfield, Rolling Meadows in Junction City, Salina Municipal, Stagg Hill in Manhattan, Turkey Creek in McPherson, Wellington Golf Club, Sunflower Hills Golf Course in Bonner Springs, Custer Hill at Fort Riley, and Hidden Lakes Golf Course in Derby.Harrison said it is already paying dividends for Wellington’s course. A couple of Derby golfers has decided to join the course here in Wellington so they can have reduced golf rates playing in Derby because Wellington’s course is cheaper than getting a membership at Hidden Lakes.•••••Fees —It’s time to get a season pass at the Wellington golf course. Prices have not gone up. For an individual pass, it is $625. For a family of four, the cost is $775. Private golf cart membership is $300 with an additional $25 to drive on the street.Individually to golf is $19 to play golf during the week and $21 during the weekend. Student rates are $12 for the week and $13 for the weekend. Twilight golfing is $16 during the week and $17 during the weekend. Golf cart rentals are $22 for 18 holes and $11 for nine holes. The official 2013 WGC tournament course schedule —The Wellington golf course will be a busy place again this year. The tournament schedule for this summer is as follow:center_img Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Report Reply 0 replies · active 384 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Wes Smith · 384 weeks ago I’ve only been able to make it out to the course a few times this year but Derek seems to be doing a great job. A new person brings in new ideas and so far from my perspective all positive. The new Sunflower Golf Trails partnership is huge as far as I’m concerned. With me being a bit of a new golfer I’ve not had a lot of other course expierence. This allows me to expierence something a little different at a reasonable price. Looking forward to the coming year at WGC.

Wichita has a great promotion were about once or twice a month they offer $5 green fees, and they also offer coupons that if presented you get half price carts. i know Wellington cant always do these things but just the occasional coupon or special rate would bring out a lot of beginners and business.
