ISPS HANDA South African Blind Golf Open Championship

Woodhill Country Club, Pretoria

27th – 29th August 2017

SABGA hosted the ISPS Handa South African Open from 27 – 29 August 2017. This 36-hole event took place at the Woodhill Country Club in Pretoria. The course, situated in the eastern suburbs of Pretoria, is currently rated in the top 100 courses in SA. It is a parkland course in excellent condition, offering a challenge to golfers of all levels. The two nines are very different with the front nine rising and circling the "hill", while the back nine is flatter and more thickly wooded. They invited four players to participate in the open who were either unemployed or in sheltered employment and thus could not afford entry fees or transportation costs. Additionally two junior players were invited, without having to pay an entry fee, to play in the Development Category.

Garrett Slattery, Event Organiser, said "What was particularly promising for us this year was that there has been growth in our juniors – with two boys (aged 14 and 17) playing in the development category, and finishing 1st and 3rd. This is very encouraging for the future."
