St Francis Rotary Makro Golf Festival around the corner

2018-03-22 06:00

THE annual St Francis Rotary Makro Golf Festival will tee off at the St Francis Bay Golf Club on Saturday, April 28.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the title sponsorship is claimed by retail giant Makro in Port Elizabeth in a bid to raise money for various Rotary projects in St Francis Bay.

The prestigious event will see golfers compete for great prizes in a Better Ball competition.

“Makro are very proud to be part of this event and many of their suppliers have come on board to support the festival,” says Rotary St Francis Chairman, Ivan Beaumont. “This day is more than just a fundraiser for our Rotary projects. It also provides a welcome boost to the economy of St Francis, as golfers are expected to travel from as far afield as Plettenberg Bay, Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown for the weekend.

“The festival also attracts keen interest from Rotarians countrywide and visiting overseas players.”

The entry fee is R350 per golfer and includes a half way house.
