Professional golf in Bangladesh is set to make a return today following a second Covid-induced break through the Mujib Borsho Trust Bank Open Golf Tournament at the Kurmitola Golf Club.
The Trust Bank Open Golf Tournament will offer a prize purse of 12 lakh taka and will feature top 80 professional golfers alongside 10 amateur golfers of the country.
This will be the first event of the season and the first professional event since the 5th Paragon Open, which was held in February this year at the same venue. While the Paragon Open champion Siddikur Rahman is currently in USA and runner-up Zamal Hossain Mollah is in India, the four-day event will feature all the other top golfers from across the country.
This event is expected to be the first in line in a host of professional and amateur golfing events to be held over the season as the scourge of the third wave of Covid nears an end.
