GladAfrica Enters its 7th year as sponsors of the Nedbank Golf Challenge

This year marks seven years since GladAfrica Group began its partnership with the Africa’s major golfing event, the Nedbank Golf Challenge (NGC).

The 2019 instalment of the NGC will take place on 14-17 November 2019 in Sun City, North West province. 

The Nedbank Golf Challenge is one of the major highlights on the South African sporting calendar. The tournament will see 64 players, playing over four days for the lucrative overall prize fund of $7.5 million. It is part of the Rolex Series on the European Tour and is the penultimate event on the race to Dubai.

A significant milestone of this year’s Challenge is the 40 years’ anniversary of the Gary Player Country Club, which boasts the best course praised by world golfing champions for its iconic and competitive terrain. GladAfrica is proud to be associated with this proudly South African sports legacy named after one of our best golfing champion, Mr. Gary Player.

This year’s tournament is expected to attract more big names in the golfing world due to the increase in the first prize money and Race to Dubai points. The winner of the 2019 Nedbank Golf Challenge will take home $2.5 million, a substantial increase on last year’s $1.2 million won by Westwood. This year’s tournament also offers an increased haul of Race to Dubai points from 7500 to 10 000, placing the event above what the World Golf Championships tournaments offer.  

Among some of the top names in world golf confirmed for this year’s event is Englishman and defending champion Lee Westwood and former Nedbank Golf Challenge champion Henrik Stenson of Sweden – who lifted the trophy at Gary Player Country Club in 2008. He became the first male Major champion from Scandinavia when he triumphed in the 145th Open Championship at Royal Troon three years ago. Also confirmed are English Ryder cup star Tommy Fleetwood, South African Major winner Louis Oosthuizen and Zander Lombard.

In 2012 GladAfrica Group took a strategic decision of entering into a partnership with the organisers of the prestigious sporting event.

GladAfrica Group CEO Mr. Kulani Lebese says in its seventh year, the GladAfrica/Nedbank Golf Challenge partnership has proven to be a phenomenal success. “The four days we spend in Sun City interacting with people from different walks of life have yielded great outcomes for our business. We get to expose our brand to top decision makers, extending beyond the borders of our country. Our clients and partners get to relax through an awesome golfing experience, with some of the top international and local names in the sport gracing the occasion in previous years,” says Mr. Lebese.

GladAfrica has seen steady and remarkable growth in strength and size over the past 17 years. The business currently boasts over 140 registered professionals in various disciplines. GladAfrica Group currently services around 80 different clients, covering about 160 active projects.

Sun International have promised a much improved installment of the Nedbank Bank Golf Challenge this year. According to the organization, “Golf fans are going to experience the most interactive Nedbank Golf Challenge in the tournament’s history as this year’s event showcases a host of ground-breaking new activations and experiences aimed at making fans an even greater part of “Africa’s Major”

From the moment spectators enter Sun City, they will be welcomed to a golf experience that includes the latest VR technology, live activations, and a wide variety of hospitality, entertainment and dining options on par with the biggest tournaments in world golf.
