Om te se ek het myself geniet is ‘n “understatement”
“Ek wil julle baie geluk wens met ‘n SUKSEVOLLE Windhoek pairs toernooi. Baie baie dankie vir al julle moeite en fantastiese organiseering. Om te se ek het myself geniet is ‘n “understatement” maar om te se ek het my uit my skoene lippe teen die klippe geniet is meer korrek J
Nogmaals baie dankie aan elke een van julle en wel gedoen. Julle het ‘n fantastiese taak verig.
Voorspoed vir Spanje en ook met die toernooi voorentoe.”
Het dit baie geniet!
“Wil net weer vir julle baie dankie se van ons af hier in Kirkwood vir die ondervinding in Windhoek.
Het dit baie geniet!”
What a fantastic experience it was to be part of the Windhoek Lager International Pairs finals held in Windhoek from 20 – 24 June 2018, and being the only “girl” was a unique experience in itself.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following:
Namibian Breweries and Windhoek Lager
To the entire Namibian Breweries Management for their most generous sponsorship and their commitment to amateur golf in Africa. The sponsorship of EVERYTHING viz. transport, accommodation, golf, golf carts, practice balls, practice tee name boards, golf cart name boards, half-way house, breakfast, lunch dinner, snack packs, drinks, golf shirts, golf jacket, cap, badge, bag tag, October Fest function, hats, beer mug, unique beer tasting, Gala evening, mouse pad and the many other little things were hugely appreciated – certainly no expense was spared! In particular, a huge thank you to Ian Stephenson who, no doubt, was instrumental in ensuring that this event became a reality and who has supported its growth since its inception. Thank for all the product made available to us during the tournament, believe me, I sampled it all and will definitely be supporting the brand going forward.
African Sports Management
To Johan and Gerhard for their amazing foresight in initiating this competition and promoting its growth thus providing thousands of amateur golfers the chance of experiencing the thrill and prestige of competing at a national level. Secondly, to the entire ASM Team for the exceptional organisation and professionalism demonstrated throughout the running of the competition from the qualifying rounds to the Regional finals all the way through to the National finals. The attention to detail, the communication and the overall management of all the events, but in particular the National finals, was exceptional. You really made each an every player feel honoured, privileged and special.
Omeya Golf Club
To Dan and his team. What a pleasure it was to play on such an oasis of a course, it was turned out immaculately and the friendliness and enthusiasm displayed by each and every staff member was a joy to behold and experience.
The 19th Hole
To Liezl, her husband (apologies, I never got to know his name) and their staff for their wonderful hospitality and food. The eisbein, in particular, was outstanding.
All in all, this was undoubtedly the best tournament in which I have participated. From start to finish, from cleaner to Deputy Minister of Sport, the camaraderie was palpable, and the spirit (suitably assisted by Windhoek and Tafel Lager) was inspiring and unforgettable.
I am looking forward to witnessing the growth of this exceptional event both in Africa and Internationally. For me, this may have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I sincerely hope not. You can be assured that I will enter all the qualifying rounds held at my Club so that I can give myself a “stab” at another opportunity of being part of the most prestigious tournament in Africa! …. but if I don’t qualify, I am always available to assist.
Thanks again to each and every person who was involved in making this the most memorable golfing experience, not only for me, but for all my fellow golfers.
