Hans Merensky backs SAGDB youngsters

When Muhluri Mahime, Thulani Mathebula and Paul Mawasha received the news that they had been selected to compete for Limpopo at the upcoming u19 Inter-Provincial Tournament, the three SAGDB players were thrilled. However, each player in the team was asked to contribute R1 000 to covering their tournament expenses, which the three simply couldn't afford.

The Hans Merensky Golf Club committee would not, however, allow this to prevent them from playing and agreed to cover the three players' fees. They will therefore get the chance to compete at the country's premier junior event and prove their talent at this level.

The gesture from Hans Merensky Golf Club shows its commitment to development in the region. It also sets an example for other clubs to follow.

“It's great to see a club believing in the SAGDB programme and supporting the players,” said the SAGDB's development manager for Limpopo Jean Sadie.
