Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Amateur Scene -

The 2015 Sub­scriber Chal­lenge be­gins in Fe­bru­ary with a con­densed lineup of seven events, five in Gaut­eng and two in Lim­popo. The good news though is that the top 5 pairs at each event will qual­ify for the Fi­nals at

Sun City from May 21-22. En­tries, as al­ways, must be in pairs, and the for­mat is bet­ter­ball Sta­ble­ford.

Golf Di­gest will ac­cept en­tries from all SAGA-hand­i­capped golfers, but the max­i­mum hand­i­cap they can play off is 18 (men) and 24 (women).

The Gaut­eng 18-hole events will be at five of the best cour­ses in the re­gion, in­clud­ing two Jack Nick­laus de­signs. They are SA Open venue Glen­dower in Jo­han­nes­burg, the Ebotse Links in Benoni, Pe­can­wood on the Hart­beespoort Dam, Serengeti near O R Tambo Air­port, and the top-10 ranked East course at

Royal Jo­han­nes­burg & Kens­ing­ton.

There will be two spe­cial 36-hole events, both at Ze­bula/El­e­ments in the Water­berg (Lim­popo), which has been highly popular the last two years. The best 5 pair­ings over 36 holes will earn places into the Sun City Fi­nals.

The en­try fee for Ze­bula/El­e­ments of R4 000 a pair in­cludes shared ac­com­mo­da­tion for one night at Ze­bula Golf Es­tate & Spa, break­fast, din­ner, golf carts and half­way meal at each course.

The win­ning pair at the Fi­nals will be re­warded with par­tic­i­pa­tion in the

Beach­comber Par­adis Golf Chal­lenge

in Mau­ri­tius. They will re­ceive air­fares ex Jo­han­nes­burg, 5 nights ac­com­mo­da­tion at Par­adis Ho­tel & Golf Club in­clu­sive of break­fast and din­ner, two fun days and two com­pe­ti­tion days of golf, golf carts, prac­tice balls, 25% bev­er­age dis­count voucher, wel­come cock­tail, and farewell gala event, cour­tesy of Beach­comber Tours and Air Mau­ri­tius. In ad­di­tion, the win­ner of the Par­adis Golf Chal­lenge wins free ac­co­mo­da­tion and air­fare to de­fend the ti­tle, and the run­ner-up re­ceives free ac­com­mo­da­tion to par­tic­i­pate in the 2016 Chal­lenge, plus do­mes­tic air tick­ets. Rule 4-2g SAGA/06/14.
