On a gorgeous winter’s morning a field of 88 ladies took to their tee boxes for a shotgun start at the first S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind (GDA) Ladies Golf Day held at Umhlali Country Club on 22 June.
Winners of the first Ladies Golf Day and Tsogo Sun’s Beverly Hills Hotel vouchers are Steph Carter, Nicky Heuer, Carol Chamberlain and Noelene Morris with Tsogo Sun representative, Kirsten Williams.
A beautiful winter’s morning promised a great day of golf and growing support for the Association in KZN.
The day was sponsored by Suzuki Umhlanga who generously donated towards GDA.
Fourballs competed for prizes sponsored by Tsogo Sun, Hirsch’s, Golf4U, Moreson Wine as well as other shopping and spa vouchers.
Guide Dog owner, Kalairanie Chetty, had the room in tears at prize giving, as she demonstrated how her guide dog, Edwin, gave her independence by walking her around obstacles. The interaction with some beautiful Labrador Retriever puppies was the cherry on top of a fantastic golfing day.
Ladies golf captain, Sue Ellis, addresses the field of 88 players who participated in the first S A Guide-Dogs Ladies Golf Day.
“Our Ladies Golf Day would not have been possible without the prize sponsors, the volunteers and the team at Umhlali Country Club. This was our first exclusive lady’s day and it has been a tremendous success. We are already looking forward to our next day in 2018,” said Marketing Manager in KZN, Ane Roux.
