The heart of appreciating somebody’s good deeds ranks high among the motivational stints than any other aspect one would ever think of.

The Uganda national golf team, winners of the April best sports performing team award by the Uganda Sports Press Association (USPA) is surely motivated by the reward.

The golf team won the Africa Golf Zone VI Challenge trophy held at the par 72 Uganda Golf club in Kampala where 9 countries were part of the annual tournament which will be held in Swaziland next year.

The achievement means Uganda becomes only the third nation after South Africa (19 times) and Kenya (once) to win the championship.

We are grateful for USPA for having overwhelmingly voted our team as the best performers of April in the sports circles of Uganda. Surely, this award inspires us to keep on top and win many more

Ronald ‘Rasta King’ Bukenya, one of the players who were on the team remarked as they picked their award.
