The Sanlam Cancer Challenge Final took place at Sun City from 21 – 23 October 2013, celebrating the end of the amazing 20th year of this event for CANSA.  Read the SCC December Newsletter…

This year’s event was attended by 260 delegates and included VIP’s such as the Minister of Defence, Commisioner of Police,  Breyten Paulse,  Alana Africa, Dan Brown, Jakkie Louw and his band, representatives from Sanlam, Ernie Els, Sun International, Tempest, Pick & Pay, Taylormade and other sponsors. Other golfers included: representatives from all golfing unions in South Africa, members from SAGES and Glazier – and a delightful group of golfers from Namibia.

After being transported from across South Africa – delegates were met by SynerG and CANSA representatives at the 2 airports, transported to Sun City by Tempest Car Hire group – and then received at the registration room by SynerG and CANSA, and finally checked-in to their hotel groups by the CANSA representatives.  This proved to be a very smooth and quick process – and even issues re t-shirt sizes were sorted out effectively.

The event kicked off with a special show at the Sun City Barnyard. The first day was ended in spectacular way with a special event hosted on the beach at the Valley of the Waves, and the prize giving event was hosted in true golfing style in the marquee tent overlooking the 18th green.

On the morning of the 22nd of October 2013, players started the 2 day battle on the 2 spectacular golf courses at Sun City – each player played one day at the Gary Player Golf Country Club and one day at the Lost City Golf Course .  CANSA was positioned at the Gary Players Golf Course and had an amazing display of our service offerings, national projects and CANSA Seal products.  Each of the players received a special CANSA golf-towel and sunscreen from the CANSA representatives before meeting with their group to start play.

The main focus was on the 108 regional finalists who played against each other for the incredible status of SCC Winners of 2013.  Every player finishing their day of golf commented on what a “priviledge” it was for them to play in this competition. View photo’s of the winners here….
