(PRESS RELEASE) — The Saint Lucia Golf Association is pleased to announce that 12 of its Members have been selected to represent Saint Lucia in the Eastern Caribbean Golf Association (ECGA) Championships in Anguilla.

The Players are:-

-Men’s Team: Romanus Inglis, Terry Verdant, Victor Charles, Mario Reyes (Team Captain)
-Senior Men’s Team: Cliff Alcide, McHale Andrew, Milton McKenzie
-Super Senior Men’s Team: Kent Glace, Brad Paul
-Ladies’ Team: Debra Ross, Marisa Groenewald, Joan Paul

The Team will be sponsored by the Saint Lucia Olympic Committee Inc. (Golf is now an Olympic Sport), Diamonds International (who are supplying the Official Team Uniforms), Sandals Cap Estate Golf Club and the Saint Lucia Golf Association.

On Saturday 10th November Diamonds International, represented by Yaniv Gliksman, presented the team with their Team Shirts and Goodie Bags and wished them success.

Gliksman also announced that Diamonds International will be the named Sponsor for the Saint Lucia Golf Association Monthly Medals for 2019.

This is the first time since 2012 that Saint Lucia has been in a position to field a full team and Team Captain, Mario Reyes, advises that the players are very excited that they have been given the opportunity to represent their country in such numbers.

The 2017 Event was also scheduled to have been held in Anguilla but Hurricane Irma put paid to that plan and we are very fortunate that the island’s golf course and Cuisinart Hotel have recovered sufficiently to host the Competition this year.

Saint Lucia is due to host the ECGA Championships in 2021 and it is hoped that the Greg Norman Championship Course at the Sandals Cap Estate Golf Club will be in prime condition for this prestigious event.

  1. Golf is played on the day. Our current team scores is reflective on the comments herein. The selection of the team did not follow due process .

  3. Those guys are going on a lime. It is a nice golf course so lets go have some fun. At least one guy was pushed out of the team to make way for "the boys" club. The qualifying standards were not adhered to.
    There is only one player under 50 years old at 49. I am also very surprised that the SLOC is investing in this as none of those players have a chance of being an olympian. Where are the youngerster? Grow well boys and girls, Mauricette boy and the Island's best junior Yahdu Urs.
    This team is a shameful representation of St..lucia golf

  4. Quite correct Captain "players were given the opportunity". One or two did not earn it.. Golf is a game of rules and long running Traditions. Your place on a National Team needs to be earned FAIRLY. Let the young ones coming up in this noble game be inspired.. Perception of cheating not allowed.

  5. Verse of the Day

    November 15

    John 14:2-4

    2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

  6. A team selected NOT on established criteria. A bunch of wanna bees who want to travel at others expense.. Its about time this stops.. The juniors coming up will not be encouraged.. The Ministry of Sports and media should investigate.

    • Its all for fun. A full team was not sent in 2015 because some categories were not competitive. However, the same players who were deemed not competitive are on this team playing worse golf. A lime I say!

    • I hope that they publicize the results in the press! it would be quite interesting to see how well they did in comparison to others. the real scores!, not handicapped. They are back!
