The competition, which attracted about 200 golfers, was aimed at raising funds to rehabilitate the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
Mrs Sophia Akuffo, the Chief Justice, said golf is a game of leisure which accounted for several health benefits.
She urged the Achimota Golf Club to ensure that the youth were trained in the game so that they can replace them in their old age.
Mrs Akuffo commended the Club for supporting the refurbishment of the Holy Spirit Restoration project.
She called on individuals and corporate organizations as well as Non-Governmental Organizations to support the Catholic Church to execute their social responsibility initiatives.
The Archbishop Charles Palmer-Buckle, Metropolitan Bishop of Accra, who will be celebrating his 25th anniversary as Archbishop of Accra in January, presented the trophies to the winners.
