L2B Golf Day
You’ve got to wonder if there’s any better way to spend a business day, than doing it on the green – deadlines, spreadsheets and the continual flow of emails far behind you as you line up to take your shot.
And so, with made-to-order weather at the picturesque Randpark golf club, the Leads 2 Business’ 13th Annual Construction-industry Golf day commenced.
This is the way to do it – meeting, greeting and interacting with construction-industry participants; there were over 70 unique businesses in attendance and more than 40 sponsored areas, the participants eagerly awaited their turn to entertain – golfers were spoilt for choice.
The course was dotted with splashes of colour, laughter and camaraderie – greens and tees were adorned with brightly coloured banners, heavy machinery, cranes, trucks and equipment; if it involved construction, it was there. Gazebos housed friendly promoters, welcoming golfers with a variety of drinks and snacks.
Sponsors and players alike came together with single minded intent to have fun and make a day of it!
Unique, out-of-the-box ideas abounded, including a single-story scaffolding deck for golfers to tee off from, the Hole-in-One competition with a brand-spanking new Audi Q5 for the taking, hoisted into the air by crane and dangling over the greens for all to see.
Stunning aerial shots were taken of the golfers, greens and the sponsored holes, whilst an assortment of competitions were held out on the field, to raise funds towards the chosen charity.
Our prize giving emcee was the fabulous ‘Vinnige’ Fanie de Villiers, who entertained us with jokes, drinks for numerous course offences and auctioned off items, including a stunning safari weekend, autographed 18th hole PGA flags and sporting goods, sponsored by Fanie himself.
Sponsors readily contributed, and the winning golfers got to take home some amazing prizes!
Edwin Pearce, the Warden from the Timbavati Wildlife Protection Programme’s (TWPP) anti-Rhino poaching unit, presented a moving speech that raised awareness on the plight of the Rhino; what they are up against and what it is they are doing to stem the rising tide of poaching.
Sponsor competitions on the day and the prize giving auction raised a significant amount of cash for the grateful TWPP warden and field sergeants.
Leads 2 Business initiated the golf day as a way of thanking our loyal supporters for their ongoing commitment and the L2B staff clamour to be part of this day; enjoying the opportunity to interact with their clients, and in the case of our KZN-based staff, the opportunity to put a face to a name.
