THE Wild Coast Sun Country Club hosted the Alfred Nzo Golf Development Tournament on Saturday, October 20 in a bid to unearth golfing talents from underprivileged areas of the Eastern Cape.

The tournament was organised by the Matatiele Golf Development and Mzamba Golf Development in association with the Wild Coast Sun Country Club and the Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture. It is part of the resort’s commitment to uplifting the community through education and youth empowerment.

“We are hoping to produce a top class golfer from the small region. It is no secret that, aside from the fact that golf is a challenging sport, it is also very expensive, which means that to many in underprivileged areas the sport is nothing but a dream. I am very proud that we have made that dream a reality to the kids here. They all enjoyed themselves and some have come back with good scores,” said Mawande Genu, PR and Promotions Coordinator for Wild Coast Sun.

The tournament is part of a long-term plan to nurture young pupils and encourage them to take up the sport as a profession.
