Farewell Adi Sai

Golfers in Fiji will pay tribute to Adi Sainimili Tuivanuavou when she is laid to rest tomorrow Friday, 30 November, 2012.

Adi Sai, as she was known in the golfing fraternity, passed away in the USA recently where she had been living.

Adi Sai's golfing association goes back to the early 1970s when she began her golf at the Nausori Golf Club.  She was the Lady Captain at Nausori from 1972-1975 and winner of the Club Championships for many years.  During the late 1990s AdiSai was the Lady Captain at the Fiji Golf Club before being elected as President of the Fiji Women's Golf Assocaition (as it was then known) from 2003-2007.
