GWII hosts annual Golf Day

Gauteng Women in Insurance (GWII) hosted their annual golf day at the magnificent Steyn City Golf Club in Midrand with main sponsor Auto & General, and co-sponsors Clyde & Co, Camargue, Discovery, Innovation Group, Leppard, MiWay, and Tracker.

Getting together with the ladies for a round of golf is a great way to mix exercise and friendly competition. Anyone in your foursome could potentially win the match. But there also are side games of skill, and luck, you can play during the round. Whether you choose to play for prizes or just for fun, these games add an interesting twist to your day on the links.

Starting play

On arrival players were supplied with golf shirts, sponsored by Clyde & Co, happy socks, sponsored by Auto & General, white caps, sponsored by Everinghams and pack of golf balls, sponsored by GuardRisk. They were then sure to stop by the Genasys table before tee off for a water bottle and some snacks, as well as after the game for a little surprise. Players then enjoyed a selection of light refreshments and Parisian fruit kebabs with lime and mint, before heading out onto the greens to begin their tee offs moments later.

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.

Topping up on energy levels, on-cart catering did the rounds with water, Powerade, energy bars and crisps. At the Halfway House a ‘build a wrap station’ was set up, allowing hungry players to indulge in chicken and beef wraps with a selection of fillings, pickles and dressing.

As always, GWII supports a nominated charity, and for this event members were asked to dress in a golf shirt which they were willing to donate to charity.

Relaxed ending

What a fun day! As players came off the field, they were asked to putt (where the putt was 25 meters) and if a person got the putt in the hole, they would win R20 000 in cash from SHA Risk Specialists.

After neck and shoulder massages, sponsored by Genasys, players and guests enjoyed gin popsicles and a gin bar while indulging in sushi. The day ended off with a cocktail and prize giving session, followed by scrumptious eats and treats, including hot canapes.

Awarded efforts

Category winners included all the 4-ball groups. Prizes were also given for nearest the pin and the longest drive. The prizes ranged from Takealot vouchers, pamper packs, a gym bag, umbrellas, torches, photo frames, coolers and branded caps, books, Harlem Kitchen vouchers, various goodies and daily planners, not to mention one lucky lady walked away with an advanced driving course voucher, and another, a Wickhams Retreat weekend away.
