Inland Branch Annual Golf Day


The Inland Branch held its second annual golf day recently at the RandPark Golf Club, RandPark, Johannesburg. More than 60 players teed off at this pristine 70-year old course, in perfect golfing weather.
The day was designed to be a fun occasion, and to help it along, there were special features and prizes available for the players to enjoy.

There were 16 teams representing various companies in the industry competing for prizes on the day. Chryso-abe provided some refreshment on the course with a wet hole, and at the Marshmallow Game. BASF and AfriSam branded two of the dry holes.
Feedback after the event reported that everybody had a great time and good networking was the order of the day. Hanlie Turner, National President of the Society managed to hit the marshmallow the closest to the flower, but only on her second try, and thus was not awarded the first prize.
The Inland Branch Committee, together with Lynne du Toit, proved once again that they can present great networking opportunities to the industry, intermingled with a lot of fun. The donation of dinner for the students and team from Home-Base, was a good way to end the day. This organisation currently has eight residential students, of whom seven are from children’s homes. They are given the opportunity to study further after school and having a safe family home environment, which makes all the difference to them.

The golf was followed by a short interlude of networking and liquid refreshment, and then the players assembled for dinner and the prize-giving. Vice-Chair, Johan van Wyk announced the prize winners, whilst Hanlie Turner the national president of the Society presented them to the winners. The final results were:
