Hassen elected President of SAGA
Enver Hassen was elected unopposed as the new president of the South African Golf Association (SAGA) at its Annual General Meeting held at Hermanus Golf Club last night.
“It is an honour for me to serve amateur golf through the SAGA,” said Hassen after being elected. “I hope to continue the good work of my predecessors as we strive to build the game of golf in South Africa over the next two years.”
Hassen succeeds Neale Kunhardt whose two year term of president of the country’s amateur governing body of the sport terminates, in terms of the SAGA’s constitution.
Hassen is not new to golf administration, he has served as Western Province Golf Union President for a three year term and thereafter as Second Vice President and Vice President of the SAGA, each for a two year term.
Colin Burger, President of Kwazulu-Natal Golf Union, was elected as Vice President, replacing Errol Möller, and Andre Pieterse, President of Free State & Northern Cape Golf Union, was elected as Second Vice President.
