We would like to thank the players, the companies who sponsored holes and the people who sponsored prizes, as without them this day would not be possible.
Special guest was Brian Mitchell a former professional boxer and quite possibly the best South African boxer of all time. Mitchell turned pro in 1981 and captured the WBA and Lineal Junior Lightweight Title in 1986 with a 10th-round KO over Alfredo Layne. He defended the title a record 12 times, and never lost a title fight.
Unfortunately, we had had no winners on the sponsored holes which offered R100 000 on the 7th hole for a hole in one by PTF Logistics (Pty) Ltd and R25 000 on the 15th hole by Bay Union (Pty) Ltd.
We would also like to thank Pietie Meyer from Sportspro for the auction.
