Teeing off at the ‘Duke’ in London

2015-04-29 09:24

MERVIN Mudaly and Kevin Naidoo from Pietermaritzburg, representing Golden Horse Casino, recently won on the Rockland course at South Africa’s top amateur annual golf tournament.

They will be jetting off to participate in the exclusive Duke of Edinburgh­ Cup 2015 World Finals in England.

The tournament represents the South African leg of the Duke of Edinburgh Cup, played annually in 10 countries with the aim of raising funds to benefit children and young people in need.

Tsogo Sun has been associated with the tournament for more than 10 years and has raised over R8 million for charitable causes.

The prize includes a trip to London and hotel accommodation for five nights from 27 September to 1 October. The 36-hole Duke of Edinburgh Cup World Final will be held over two days.

They will also attend a royal champagne reception and prize-giving dinner in the state apartments of Windsor Castle where a senior member of the British royal family will be at the dinner.

This year’s tournament was by invitation only, giving Tsogo Sun the opportunity of thanking their loyal and supportive card members.

This year more than 2 200 children from Grade 1 to Grade 7 from Muzomuhle Primary, Diepsloot’s oldest and largest school, benefited from funds raised through the charity-driven golf tournament.

“We’re delighted to be involved in this prestigious event every year and believe it is a memorable experience for all players, particularly the winners, as well as the worthy beneficiaries of the funds we raised.

“We congratulate the four worthy winners and wish them an exciting and successful trip to the Duke of Edinburgh­ Cup finals in September,” said Noëleen Bruton, Tsogo Sun director­ of marketing. - Supplied
