Nedbank Desert Classic set for December
30 January 2018 | Sports
Nedbank Namibia has committed N$110 000 towards hosting the Nedbank Desert Classic golf event, which will take place at the Rossmund Golf Course in Swakopmund on 28 and 29 December.
The bank’s chief financial officer JG van Graan said with the success of last year’s event, they are excited to once again be part of the golf tournament.
“The Nedbank Desert Classic event usually draws some of the top golf players in Namibia and our aim is to present them with a world-class experience when they step onto the Rossmund Golf Course in December.”
Dan Zwiebel of DZ Golf said the Nedbank Desert Classic will follow a better-ball stableford format with a scramble drive. “The field can accommodate 72 teams, and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.”
Entry fees and details
Entries close on 20 December. Entry fees will once again be N$1 000 per player, and will include green and competition fees as well as top-notch welcoming gifts, halfway house treats for both golfing days and a prize-giving lunch for all participants.
The event is billed to cater for the entire family.
All roads lead to Swakop
The Nedbank Desert Classic provides the perfect backdrop to end off both an engaging year and month for Nedbank Namibia in Swakopmund, considering that the bank is also hosting the Nedbank Desert Dash on 11 and 12 December, as well as the Nedbank Swakopmund Food Festival on 18 and 19 December.
