Our 25th Anniversary Golf Day took place on Thursday, 1 September 2022, at Services Golf Club in Centurion. In celebration of our big day, we partnered with Honeywell to invite our top clients and embarked on a glorious day of golfing.
With a bright and early start, the golfers arrived on site, registered, and sussed out the course with gift bags and refreshments in hand, eagerly awaiting the briefing before being let loose on the course. Once all golfers had arrived at their designated starting holes, the klaxon sounded, and the fierce competition began.
As the golfers made their way around the course, they also had the opportunity of participating in mini-challenges, including Longest Drive, Nearest the Pin, and some interesting games on certain waterholes.
The excitement around the challenges added a vibrant buzz to the air and the determination to win could be seen in the marshmallow challenge, as participants shot giant marshmallows flying across hole 6!
After several hours, the golf round came to a close, with the participants headed straight back to the clubhouse to reward themselves with refreshments, snacks and some friendly networking.
Everyone moved into the dining hall where we then heard from our partners…
