“The golf day will involve the golfers, leaders of the ANC, ministers, deputy ministers, premiers, MECs and executive mayors. “We have designed a package for players/golfers and sponsorship.
These packages are tailored to meet the players’ needs and sponsors,” the party said of the event.
The event comes with a registration/green fees of R2,500 per player. To tee off with the president on a four-ball costs R350,000, while playing with premiers and ministers will cost R75,000. Having a four-ball with an NEC member will set you back R75,000, while playing with PEC members will cost R50k.
A four-ball with a mayor costs R20,000 and a normal four-ball will set you back R10,000.
The first tee off time is 9.30am and a dinner and prizegiving at the clubhouse will follow immediately after the game.
Sponsorship packages range from R100k to R10k. While some were keen to tee off, others were taken aback by the costs.
