Eight players from the SAGDB in Limpopo enjoyed a day to remember ahead of the recent Vodacom Origins of Golf Pro-Am played at Euphoria Golf Estate. The youngsters were given an exclusive clinic by some of the professionals competing in the event, and came away inspired.

“The kids they had a lot of fun with the Sunshine Tour professionals,” said the SAGDB's development manager for Limpopo Jean Sadie. “Wallie Coetsee was particularly great with the kids, giving them wonderful tips, lots of hope and a dream to chase. He spoke to them about the passion he has for golf and how that is what keeps him going.”

All the SAGDB players benefited immensely from the experience.

“In the bus going back to Polokwane the kids could not stop talking of how they were excited about the game, how “cool” it was to be treated like VIP guests and how they one day want to do the same,” Sadie said. “This was a huge success and hopefully we can build on this.”
