In the Ladies division, the qualifiers are, C. Robinson from Windhoek (A Division), B. Nolte from Omeya Club (B Division) and G. Adams from Windhoek (C. Division).

Sanlam Namibia Cancer Golf Challenge started in May this year, with close to 600 players from 13 golf clubs. Winners will now compete in the 36-hole National Finals from 20-21 October 2014 at the spectacular fairways of the Gary Player Country Club and Lost City Golf course. Primary aim of the Challenge is to raise funds for Cancer Association of Namibia (CAN), and Sanlam Namibia has since 2004 donated more than N$2-million for the fight against cancer.

Local organiser, Wessel Kotze, said “We are very proud of our players and stakeholders this year, especially Mona Klose from the Sanlam SFD Branch at Mariental who spearheaded a contribution of N$87 000”. Tertius Stears, Group CEO of Sanlam Namibia “This project is only a success because of the concerted efforts of all the players, all the golf clubs and all the Sanlam Namibia employees in the country”.
