Thompsons Holidays hosted an eventful golf day for their clients and suppliers on the Randpark Golf Club on
8 September. All 18 holes were sponsored by prestigious suppliers with teams on hand to encourage the players and
keep them hydrated. Mulligans were on sale and a golf pro challenged players on their driving prowess – all for charity.
The 30 Four Ball teams were challenged along the course by a Golf Pro and many other skills tests which in turn earned
them fabulous prizes.
If it were not for our generous sponsors, it would have been possible to pull off such a successful event. The stunning
golf shirts were made possible with sponsorship from The Tourism Authority of Thailand. With the help of
Delta Airlines and Radisson Blu, goodie bags were sponsored to give the golfers all golfing paraphernalia.
Also provided in the bags were vouchers for The Barnyard Theatre and Mangwanani Spa. The delicious lunch
at the halfway house was sponsored by Constance Hotels & Resorts.
The hole-in-one challenge on the 17th hole came with a grand prize of R50,000
Other prizes include trips to Mauritius and Thailand as well as local holidays and superb hampers.
The evening ended with supper and the prize-giving with lots of jokes about the best and the worst of the day.
The grand finale was an auction of a holiday for two to a 5* Resort in Mozambique.
Thanks to the generosity of the players close to R30,000 was collected for Oasis Haven for abandoned children.
The day ended with pleas from the players for a repeat event next year.
