Humewood Golf Club was the venue on Friday, October 17 for the 16th Annual City Lodge Port Elizabeth Golf Day – and what a great day it turned out to be with excellent golfing weather for the 128 (32 four-balls) players participating.
While the winning four-ball (with 95 points from the fourball-alliance two score to count format) comprised the Nestle team of Wayne Emslie, Eric van Rensburg, Hennie Jordaan and Roy Garden, the big winners from the day was Soroptimist International of Port Elizabeth which received a donation of around R55,000 towards its valuable charity work in the Nelson Mandela Bay area and further afield.
Significantly, this trumped the R45,000 raised from last year’s golf day, providing a tidy increase in support for Soroptimist’s leader Gail Charalambous and her team of dedicated helpers. Soroptimist International of PE is part of a global women’s organisation working in the field of human rights – it is actively involved in providing bursaries, preparing young women for adulthood, teacher training, fighting the scourge of rape, and providing assistance for women and children affected by various other factors.
The City Lodge Hotel Group, which has five hotels in Port Elizabeth, organised the event with the support of a wide range of corporate and individual sponsors who financed holes and donated prizes.
