Namibian golfers ready for South Africa
Golfers in the Namibian leg of the Sanlam Cancer Golf Challenge will battle it out on 22 August 2015 at Omeya.
The Sanlam Namibia Cancer Golf Challenge started in April this year, with close to 600 players from 15 golf clubs. The winners in the Namibian leg will compete in the 36-hole National Finals on 20 October 2015 at the spectacular fairways of the Gary Player Country Club and Lost City Golf course.
The primary aim of the Challenge is to raise funds for the Cancer Association of Namibia, and Sanlam in Namibia has since 2004 donated more than N$2 million for the fight against cancer.
Local organiser, Wessel Kotze, said, “the Sanlam Cancer Golf, especially in Namibia, has become so entrenched in our corporate and sport culture, that we cannot imagine life without it. We know it makes a difference to dozens of cancer patients in Namibia, and that makes us proud to be the hosts.”
Tertius Stears, Group CEO of Sanlam said, “our support this year, as with every year, is just growing and growing. In the fight against cancer, there are no competitors. We all do our bit, and Sanlam is in the privileged position to contribute to this war.”
