More rewards for SA’s top junior golfers on Glacier Series
South Africa’s junior golfers have received another major incentive on this year’s Glacier Junior Series as they prepare for Sunday’s second tournament of the 2014 season.
Multiple European and Sunshine Tour winner Richard Sterne, who recently finished tied fourth in the WGC-Cadillac Championship, is the host of this Sunday’s tournament at Westlake Golf Club in Cape Town.
This is the second event on the nationwide series, which features 21 tournaments played on some of South Africa’s leading golf courses.
The winners of each qualify for the National Final, where the overall champion will win an all-expenses paid trip to the prestigious Junior Orange Bowl International Golf Championship in the United States.
But an added incentive for this year’s champion is that Dale Hayes Golf Events has arranged for an all-expenses paid trip to attend the World Elite Performance Golf Academy (WEPGA) in Florida after the Orange Bowl.
The academy is run by South African PGA professional Peter Bakker and exposes junior golfers of all levels to top coaching on world-class facilities.
And the winner will also join Hayes on a trip to the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, in January 2015.
It’s this world-class approach to junior golf that fits the vision of the Glacier Junior Series to distinguish itself as one of the top junior series’ in the world.
“Our greatest golfers all benefited from a strong junior golf programme, and we believe in continuing this process to make sure we provide a strong platform for our champions of the future. Our business is all about thinking world class, and that ties in perfectly with the vision of South African golf,” said Anton Raath, Chief Executive of Glacier by Sanlam.
