Simran Oberoi returned a net score of 67 to win the October Medal Open Golf Championship of the Celebrity Golf Club played at Sakumono, near Tema on Saturday.
Oberoi achieved his feat when he played 46 Back and 40 Front with a Handicap of 15 to beat Kofi Kusi Boateng and Akwasi Opoku on count-back.
In the Ladies encounter, Grace Amoah also beat Betty Sowah-Allotey on count-back to clinch victory after they had both returned a 70 net score.
Robert Allotey won the Professionals category with 66 gross with Francis Sogbordjor taking the second position with 67 gross while David Nazareth placed third with 71 gross.
The one-day event which was sponsored by Women's World Banking Ghana (WWBG), a savings and loans company, attracted about 100 golfers.
Mr Akwasi Opoku, Vice Captain of the Celebrity Golf Club commended the company for sponsoring the competition and called on other corporate bodies to help develop the sport.
Mrs Adwoa Nyantakyi Annan, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of WWBG said the company was a corporate member of the Golf Club with about 10 members of staff currently using the Club's facilities.
'We do realize that the occupation of providing financial services entails long hours and can become quite stressful', she said, adding that 'since the institution is very mindful of the welfare of its staff, it is strongly recommended that senior members of staff participate in exercises such as golf, which helps to stimulate the mind, blood flow as well as keeping the body fit'.
Mrs Annan on behalf of the company presented a cheque of GHC 1,000 to the Celebrity Golf Club.
