MEDIA RELEASE – GREAT KEI MAYOR’S GOLF DAY
Komga 5 October 2017 For Immediate Release
Great Kei Mayor’s Golf Day
On the 20th October 2017 Great Kei Local Municipality will host its first Annual Mayors Golf Day. The Golf day is a fundraising initiative which seeks to address the challenge that the municipality has identified when it comes to the funding of social and community upliftment initiatives. Programs which relate to uplifting the community, such as Bursary Schemes, Annual Book week, Reviving C0-Operatives amongst many, cannot be funded through the equitable share which keeps decreasing annually, therefore the Council of Great Kei LM, through its Mayor, Councillor Tshetsha, saw it fit that they host an initiative such as this annually in order to assist the communities of Great Kei Municipality. Proceeds of the day will be disbursed to five community based initiatives that have been identified from the respective wards of Great Kei Municipality.
As this will be an annual event, plans are afoot to expand the event to neighbouring municipalities, where emerging African golfers will compete for a position to participate in the main event that will be held in Great Kei. It is our firm view that this event will grow and feature as one of the attractions in the Golf Calendar.
Prizes to the value of R25 000 will be awarded for the winning teams. The event will be held as follows:
|Date:||20 October 2017|
|Time:||07:30 am First Covey||18:30 pm Awards Dinner|
|Green Fees:||R200 ( Non Golfers –R100)|
|Venue:||Kei Mouth golf Course|
