Sanlam celebrates 24 years of making a difference

Speaking during the prize-giving ceremony, Paulin Moller, community mobiliser from Sanlam, said the annual challenge has made great strides in creating awareness and raising funds for CANSA to conduct research, educate the public and provide support since its launch in 1993.

“More than 40 000 golfers from South Africa and neighbouring countries competed in the 2016 SCC, raising the incredible total of R4 million towards supporting CANSA. This year we are celebrating 24 consecutive years in which the challenge was staged,” said Moller.

The Barberton club competition winners will compete in the regional finals against other club winners in August. The winners of that event will then qualify for the finals at the Gary Player Country Club and Lost City Golf Course at Sun City.

Paul du Plooy, who has been part of organising the event in Barberton right from its inception in 1993, announced his retirement.

He said as golfers from Barberton, they were privileged to have such a magnificent golf course.

Du Plooy further thanked the following sponsors; Galito’s in Mbombela, Ford Barberton, NTT Toyota Barberton, Rassie Breedt of Tjop Tjop, Glacier, Pick n Pay Barberton and Colette Delport.

This coming Saturday, Vicky Nkosi, a member of the BGC, will host a golf day as part of his 50th birthday.
