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.
