WEL­COME

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Telkom Supersport -

We all know that South Africa is an in­cred­i­bly di­verse coun­try which over ows with aes­thetic and cul­tural beauty. Once you have this coun­try in your blood, it is im­pos­si­ble to be indi er­ent when wit­ness­ing the sun­set af­ter a per­fect round of golf. Even more so when the golf course is set in the breath­tak­ing South African Bushveld and you nd your­self in the com­pany of good friends.

It is with this emo­tional con­nec­tion to our beau­ti­ful coun­try in mind, that I am truly ex­cited to an­nounce the new venue for the 2016 Telkom Su­perS­port Shootout - Leg­end Golf & Sa­fari Re­sort in Lim­popo Prov­ince. Those guests who have had the op­por­tu­nity to visit Leg­end Golf & Sa­fari Re­sort will no doubt un­der­stand the magic of the Lim­popo golf and Bushveld ex­pe­ri­ence. First time vis­i­tors will be awestruck by the nat­u­ral beauty and the new ex­pe­ri­ences await­ing them.

Part of the in­cred­i­ble suc­cess of this unique and sought af­ter event is that we take our par­tic­i­pants on a ver­i­ta­ble gol ng and life­style jour­ney by mov­ing to a di er­ent venue ev­ery few years. In do­ing so, we en­deav­our to keep the event fresh for our guests and our spon­sors, who will be faced with a myr­iad of ac­ti­va­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties at our new venue this year.

Our ti­tle spon­sors, Telkom and Su­perS­port, en­sured that 2015 was ul­tra-spe­cial, and will once again pro­vide the ideal plat­form to show­case this unique life­style and golf ex­pe­ri­ence through­out the live Su­perS­port broad­cast.

In 2015 we in­tro­duced our new Ry­der Cup- Pub­lished by type for­mat in which Team Telkom and Team Su­perS­port went toe-to-toe over two rounds of very com­pet­i­tive golf. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Team Telkom, who emerged vic­to­ri­ous in a nail-bit­ing nish. We South Africans love noth­ing more than watch­ing our favourite teams bat­tle it out on the play­ing elds and this year will prove no di er­ent at the Telkom Su­perS­port Shootout!

I am ex­tremely proud of the re­mark­able nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion made to our var­i­ous char­i­ties over the years. We have raised in ex­cess of R25-mil­lion through do­na­tions by our gen­er­ous spon­sors and the in­spi­ra­tional change-mak­ers who con­trib­ute sel essly through bids at our char­ity auc­tion ev­ery year. Telkom, Mul­tiChoice, BMW and ABSA de­serve spe­cial men­tion for their re­spec­tive con­tri­bu­tions.

As spe­cial as the Shootout event has been for so many years, this year prom­ises to be truly di er­ent and ex­tra­or­di­nary. Our fo­cus will be on grow­ing the life­style com­po­nent of the event, with the em­pha­sis of the new theme be­ing on our African her­itage and the re­mote wilder­ness of the Lim­popo Bushveld.

Our guests can be as­sured of a spe­cial week­end of new ex­pe­ri­ences, friend­ships and ca­ma­raderie in a very re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment. The per­fect an­ti­dote to the pres­sures of our daily busi­ness lives. A day spent in the wilder­ness of the Lim­popo Bushveld is all it takes to re­store peace and tran­quil­lity to the mind and soul, and so be sure to savour ev­ery spe­cial mo­ment of the new Shootout ex­pe­ri­ence.
