Commenting on the Gauteng regional elimination, Craig Clay-Smith, spokesperson for World Golf Events South Africa, said, “We would like to thank all the entrants for their participation and enthusiasm. The advantage of the regional eliminations is that entry is not limited to the province you reside in. Any interested amateur golfer who missed the Gauteng regional elimination or did not win a position in the team, can still enter the remaining two regional eliminations taking place on September 3 at Zebula Golf Estate in Limpopo and on the 13th of September at Bloemfontein Golf Club.”
The World Golfers Championship, gives all amateur golfers over the age of 16 years and with an official handicap, the opportunity to not only experience the thrill of an international golfing championship and the dream of winning a world golfing title, but also the opportunity to meet and forge friendships with amateur golfers from all over the world. The first World Final will be hosted in South Africa this year and will be played across four of KwaZulu-Natal’s premier golf courses in October.
