The Wind­hoek Lager In­ter­na­tional Pairs has en­joyed over­whelm­ing pop­u­lar­ity in its sec­ond sea­son, liv­ing up to its slo­gan of “go­ing from strength to strength.”

Hav­ing had 162 qual­i­fy­ing events around South African golf clubs in the first sea­son in 2016, or­gan­iser Jo­han Scholtz of African Sports Man­age­ment was hop­ing for 200 events in sea­son two. “We are al­ready up to 232 events and there are reg­is­tra­tions be­ing made on a daily ba­sis,” he said. “Club qual­i­fiers can be held through to March 31, so regis­tra­tion re­mains open. Re­mem­ber that clubs are not re­stricted to one event, and can have as many as they wish.

“We par­tic­u­larly would like to in­vite the ladies sec­tions of golf clubs to have their own qual­i­fy­ing events. The rules of the com­pe­ti­tion do en­able them to in­vite vis­i­tors from neigh­bour­ing clubs which might have smaller sec­tions.”

Scholtz said that his goal was to have ev­ery golf club in South Africa tak­ing part. Some golf clubs in ru­ral ar­eas might not have a big enough mem­ber­ship, but the rules al­low for these clubs to com­bine for one qual­i­fy­ing day.

“There must be a min­i­mum of 30 play­ers to con­sti­tute a qual­i­fy­ing event. For ev­ery 30 play­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing, one pair will go through to the re­gional fi­nals.

“A huge thank you is due to all the par­tic­i­pat­ing clubs which see the Wind­hoek Lager In­ter­na­tional Pairs as an op­por­tu­nity to of­fer their mem­bers and club golfers the chance to par­tic­i­pate at re­gional, national and In­ter­na­tional level.”

African Sports Man­age­ment, or­gan­is­ers of the Wind­hoek Lager In­ter­na­tional Pairs, have launched the ASM dis­count card where they have part­nered with sup­pli­ers. Par­tic­i­pants can re­ceive free fit­tings from The Pro Shop, car rental dis­counts with un­lim­ited kilo­me­tres from Tem­pest, and dis­counts on ac­com­mo­da­tion from City Lodge (10% week­days and 30% week­ends).
