Esther Okullo and Charles Mubiru were the last golfers standing as the 6th edition of the ladies section organized flags tournament ended at Kitante on Saturday.

Okullo was ‘buried' 200 yards to hole-No.1 while Mubiru's tombstone was a further 20 yards ahead to top the one-day tournament, consequently winning themselves an air ticket to Rwanda on top of a trophy and golf bag each.
