The first Ghanaian Amateurs to turn Professional was David Abaloo. The winners who have not turned Professional are notably G. K. Asante (1977 winner) E. M. Kwame (1998 winner). The Professional event has always taken back stage at the Ghana Open therefore to improve the Professional Game the Ghana Professional Golfers Association set up the WAMCO Tour.
The Principle of this Tour sponsored by West Africa Cocoa Company of Takoradi was to oragnise Pros Ams, Golf Clinics and monthly Professional Events. As in all Professional Events, two Players, Amos Korblah and Victor Brave-Mensah excelled and won most the Tournaments. Sponsorship has since lapsed and Professional Golf is a bit in the doldrums again.
Our Professionals have chalked successes international, with Amos Korblah being the first African to win the Nigeria Open, a Safari Tour Event that had been the monopoly of European Pros. Previous European Winners catapulted their carreers to become World Champions eg, Nick Faldo, Vijay Sighn.
