GWII hosts annual Golf Day

Gauteng Women in Insurance (GWII) hosted their prestigious annual golf day at the magnificent Steyn City Golf Club in Midrand with main sponsor Auto & General, co-sponsors Camargue, Clyde & Co, F&I Insurance, F&I Reinsurance and Emerald Risk Transfer.

The event, open only to experienced golfers, was played over 18 holes, followed by a prize giving sit down dinner.

Starting play

On arrival players were supplied with golf shirts, sponsored by Clyde & Co and caps and visors sponsored by Everinghams. The funky socks were sponsored by F&I Insurance & F&I Reinsurance. To adhere to Covid-19 protocol, players were supplied with masks and buffs, sponsored by Yard Insurance.

Thank you to the additional sponsors for the goody bags, Digicall and Genasys.

The GWII golf day was played over 18 holes. The teams included a male industry colleague and the 18 holes played gave plenty of time for networking and friendly rivalry amongst the industry colleagues.

For the first time ever at the GWII Golf Day there was a hole in one competition where someone stood a chance to win R100 000, sponsored by SHA Risk Specialists. Unfortunately, no one won it.

As players came off the field, players and guests then enjoyed a gin from the gin bar, sponsored by Emerald, while indulging in sushi. The day ended off with a sit-down dinner and prize giving session.

Category winners included all the 4-ball groups. Prizes were also given for nearest the pin and the longest drive. Thank you to all of our prize sponsors:
