OCTOBER and what a month it proved to be for the golf media. The month kicked off with the annual Khan Winter Trophy where the Golf Media challenge the Sunshine Tour players and even with four shots added to the media players’ handicaps the Tour players won again. The event was played on the revamped Huddle Park Blue Course which, over the last two years, David Bagg and his team have converted into a perfect golfing and recreational venue for the whole family.
The next day saw the opening of the Steyn City golf course for the media and what a 6-star event this proved to be: A 3km drive through the estate, a helicopter flip taking in Douw Steyn’s Romanesque mansion – a bit like a mini palace of the Lost City – and then on to the fabulous golf course. No water shortage here and if you get the chance of playing this resident and guests only course grab it and enjoy an unforgettable experience.
The Cell C SA Women’s Open has been dogged by rain over the last three years and this year proved to be no exception. The Pro-Am and second round were washed out but thanks to excellent drainage at San Lameer the event was able to be completed over 54 holes, with Lee-Anne Pace proving to be a popular winner.
Exciting news for Tee and Sandwedges golfers.
On request of the KZN South Coast Tourism we will be organising two senior events in 2015 – Selborne and Umdoni in March and Southbroom, San Lameer and Wild Coast Sun in August. We will have final details in our December issue.
