R&A 9 Hole Challenge


After the success of the inaugural GolfRSA Race to the R&A 9 Hole Challenge last year, club qualifying was introduced for this year’s series and the second GolfRSA Race to the R&A 9 Hole Challenge is in full swing at golf clubs across South Africa.

“The ultimate prize will once again be a trip of a lifetime for two golfers to tee it up at the R&A 9 Hole Challenge alongside golfers from the UK, Argentina, Australia, France and New Zealand, but with the qualifying this year the series has become more inclusive,” said GolfRSA project manager Paul Adams.

“The overall goal of the R&A 9 Hole Challenge is to increase the number of nine-hole rounds played and to provide clubs with an opportunity to use this competition to run more events and generate additional revenue for their facilities.

“We have had a wonderful response, with more than 150 clubs across South Africa participating, we are hitting the mark on both counts. What’s more, four sponsors – Coleman Camping Gear and Equipment,  Cleveland Golf South Africa, Anthonij Rupert Wyne Estate and Adidas SA – have come on board this year, along with GolfRSA’s partner, The Courier Guy!

“Not only will our sponsors supply some incredible prizes for our Regional Final Lucky Draw in Cape Town on 10 April, but they have also provided us with phenomenal prizes for the National Final in May. And, as always, our partner – The Courier Guy SA – will ensure timeous delivery cross South Africa.”

GolfRSA CEO Grant Hepburn is equally as enthusiastic about the support the second edition of the GolfRSA Race to the R&A 9 Hole Challenge is enjoying.

“I’m delighted to have such high-caliber sponsors partnering for this event, which created lifelong memories for last year’s winners who flew the flag for us at the final at Royal Liverpool.”
