One of the highlights of the sporting calendar for the Insurance Institute of the Northern Gauteng is the Annual Golf Day. This year the event, held at the Wingate Park Country Club, was bigger than the previous one and well supported by our members, sponsors, and VIP guests. To make this day a success we need sponsors, and this year we were privileged to have more than one sponsor.

The main sponsor was Hollard Insurance Company. A big thank you goes to Johan Prinsloo and his team from the Pretoria office. Hollard sponsored all the green fees. No Golf Day of this nature is fun without more sponsors and watering holes.

King Price insurance also made sure the golfers had a fun day and sponsored a Juke Box for the day. The music started early and as more golfers arrived the ‘Gees’ just got better. Other contributors were C-Track, Tracker, Miway, Epic Underwriting managers, Apollo Tyres, and Mirabilis. The IING would like to thank each sponsor.

The feedback received from the players was that everyone had a fantastic day. The Wingate golf course is always in pristine condition. A major thank you goes to Trevor Pole and his team for hosting us. I am sure next year will be as fun and successful as this year’s event. The competition was a 4-ball alliance with two scores to count on all the holes. Well done to each player!

The day is all about having fun, and the prize giving was an informal event which took place in the bar area with everyone enjoying a drink or two. The evening ended with dinner, music and socialising.

The IING would like to congratulate the prize winners:

Winning 4-ball of the day: Marc Fighart, Byron Fighart, Jonathan v/d Westhuizen, Hein Mentz

Closest to the pin on the 8th Hole: Lourens Kruger

Closest to the pin on Hole 16th: Gerrie van Niekerk.

We hope to see you all again at the next year’s Golf Day.
