The LavAzza Golf Open teed off the start of the golf season at Education City Golf Club on 13 September. The tournament was the first event in a monthly series that will conclude after 8 tournaments finishing in April 2020.

The tournament took place over the 18 Hole Championship course at Education City Golf Club. A hospitable welcome at the start of the morning with a professional barista serving up fresh morning coffee and snacks by Il Cafe de Roma. The cosy and relaxing cafe by LavAzza provided the players with the best Italian tradition and quintessential experience found in its outlets at City Centre, Lagoona Mall, Tawar Mall, Hotel Park and soon to be in the prestigious Sidra Hospital.
