On Friday, 13 November 2015, S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind held its Golf Day at the pristine Ebotse Golf & Country Estate in Benoni.
The Golf Day kicked off with a two-tee start from 11h00, as 72 avid players battled it off against each other. The format for the day was a ‘mystery fourball alliance’, which many players seemed to have enjoyed immensely. Time Freight, BJNC Trading and SSG Consulting sponsored holes, providing both snacks and drinks to the golfers passing through.
We also had four “closest to the pin” competitions, one of which was the always challenging blindfold competition, at the 11th hole. Players took a shot under blindfold, and surprisingly, some made their best shots here.
Thanks to our generously sponsored fourball prizes, everyone went home a winner! Golfers were also given a goodie bag at registration, packed with essentials such as a pack of tees and a stress ball for those especially difficult shots.
Team “All Procurement” captained by Pierre Smit, took the number one spot on the day.
Thank you to the organising team for putting together a spectacular event. Thank you to our valued sponsors for the part they played in making this day a success and thank you to SAB Miller, for keeping our golfers hydrated and spirited throughout the day.
We look forward to seeing everyone again next year for what will hopefully be an annual golfing event on the East Rand.
