Managing Director of Winehouse Rachel Mijiga said the sponsorship was one way of giving back to the golfers who patronise the place.

“We are sponsoring golf because of the customers that come here also belong to the golf fraternity. We wanted to say thank you to our customers who also happen to golf players,” Mijiga said.

She also promised that they would sponsor another competition next year.
