PGA's Western Cape Interclub sparks growth
CAPE TOWN (31 March 2015) - Following the success of the PGA of South Africa's first Interclub in the Western Cape last year, the organisation has expanded its Interclub tournaments to all five of its regions this year.
The Interclub tournaments, sponsored by Europe's leading airline Turkish Airlines, were created as a means of developing greater synergy between the PGA of South Africa and golf clubs in the regions.
As explained by Louis Destroo, the PGA's Western Cape Regional Chairman, the Interclub concept helps the PGA to create greater value for golf clubs around the country through its highly successful Partners and Affiliates programme.
"Companies want to associate with golf clubs, and as a respected brand in South African golf the PGA is there to facilitate this, from better insurance options to more competitive catering solutions for the clubs. The PGA has developed very strong commercial partnerships that can benefit the golf clubs as well."
The Interclub format sees each golf club represented by the club captain, president, general manager and club professional in a one-day competition.
The next Western Cape Interclub will be played on 25 August at Atlantic Beach Golf Estate.
