The Helderberg Hospice Golf Day was a huge success. After a two-year delay due to Covid-19, this annual fundraiser, could eventually be hosted this year on Friday February 25 at the Somerset West Golf Club.

The day was, according to information supplied by the hospice, a huge success with generous sponsors and prizes for the top ranking teams, but no-one went home without having won something.

One of the holes carried a prize of R50 000 for a hole-in-one, and although no-one managed to achieve that, a few players came excitingly close.

Player, Jeanette Williams did manage to achieve a hole-in-one, but on the “wrong” hole, and made a significant donation to Helderberg Hospice.

Helderberg Hospice CEO, Robert de Wet thanked all the sponsors and participants, whose generosity made such a difference to the service Helderberg Hospice is able to provide in the Helderberg Basin.

Additionally the Helderberg Hospice, expressed thanks and appreciation to Somerset West Golf Club and manager, Wouter Geldenhuys, for his entertaining and accomplished hosting skills.

People who attended the event, but left before the evening ended can collect their prizes from Helderberg Hospice, at 21 Old Stellenbosch Road, Somerset West, or contact Celèstine on 076 062 5855.
