2016 Saw the launch of the 1st season of the Windhoek Lager International Pairs. It has been an amazing success.
International Pairs Worldwide was created in England in 1999 and started as a regional inter-club “pairs” competition in the Hampshire area to celebrate the Millennium. That was 17 years ago and the tournament has grown into an International event of some significance. The success of International Pairs as a concept has been its simplicity and in enabling participating countries to hold qualifying events through which the process to identify pairs of ordinary club golfers to represent their country at the International Pairs World Final each year.
In addition to the Windhoek Lager International Pairs Tournament, an additional tournament will take place – the Windhoek Lager Championship. The Top A-, B-, and C-division players, as well as the top lady, who do not qualify in the WLIPSA regional qualifying event, will qualify for the South African Final of the Windhoek Lager Championship. The winners of the above categories at the SA Final will go through to the Windhoek Lager Championship final in Namibia, where up to 10 other African countries partake!
There will thus be two opportunities for the club members of the qualifying pair to reach an International final.
So, there is more than enough reason for your club and members to be part of the largest amateur golf competition in the world; one that is highly competitive, cost-effective and provides the opportunity for any club golfer to potentially represent their club, region and country against other golfers from around the country and possibly the world.
