Zimbabwe national ladies golf team player Yollander Mubaiwa is hoping to sign off her amateur golf career on a high by winning the Zimbabwe Ladies Amateur Open slated for Royal Harare Golf Club from Friday to Sunday.
The seasoned golfer will be one of the favourites to win this year’s National Aids Council sponsored- Zimbabwe Ladies Amateur Open as she has been a consistent performer on the local circuit.
Mubaiwa is one of the most decorated golfers within the Zimbabwe ladies golf ranks as she has represented Zimbabwe in several regional and continental competitions such as the All Africa Challenge Trophy, the Gilbertson and Page Trophy, the A and B Triangular and Ladies Open on several occasions.
The talented golfer won the Nigeria IBB Ladies Open in 2014 and went on to clinch the Botswana Ladies Open in 2019.
Mubaiwa is determined to win this year’s Zimbabwe Ladies Amateur Open to finish her amateur career on a high before taking the next step in her career.
“I am contemplating turning professional and winning the Zimbabwe Ladies Open would be a great achievement as I will be turning professional afterwards,” she said.
Mubaiwa is in good form after recently finishing runner-up in the Midlands Ladies Strokeplay Championship at Gweru Golf Club. She narrowly missed out on the coveted title
to Margaret Nyamukondiwa in a three-hole playoff.
She had earlier validated her golfing prowess by putting up a spirited performance to win the Matabeleland Open Strokeplay Championship in March this year. Mubaiwa returns to her favourite hunting ground Royal Harare Golf Club where she recently won her sixth successive Royal Harare Golf Club Ladies Championship and her eighth overall, making her one of the favourites to lift the Zimbabwe Ladies Amateur Open Championship.
