The Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) this week revealed the trophy and jacket for the Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket Golf Championship. Speaking at the event NBL Manager: Sponsorships, Events and Brand, Ian Stevenson said that the championship which was launched a month ago in Windhoek has taken off in leaps and bounds.

“To date four tournaments have already been played and the response from the golfers and administrators across the region has been overwhelming. There is keen competition to see who will eventually be representing their respective countries in the battle to become the first Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket Golf Champion in 2014.” More launches of the championship have taken place in Zimbabwe and Botswana with Zambia and South Africa to follow shortly.
The trophy was designed by Gys Cilliers and Bertus Botha and displays the African continent in copper, a rich Namibian and African metal- rough and heavy as the African continent. The trophy which weighs 52 kilograms is made up of two layers of 16mm solid copper with the the golf ball and tee also cut out from copper. The base is made of solid Namibian teak. “This trophy will stand proud next to our great Windhoek Lager beer for many years to come and will be handed over to worthy winners of the Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket Golf Championship” said Stevenson.
“The trophy had to be different, unique and portray elements of Africa , Golf and the Windhoek Lager brands, he also added that NBL made things a bit more intricate and advised that the trophy, like Windhoek Lager, had to be authentic, truly Namibian and had to be made from only Namibian raw materials in line with the “Keep it real” slogan of Windhoek Lager”, said Stevenson.
The overall winner of the championship will not only receive the prestigious trophy but will also be awarded the Windhoek Lager Jacket.
