GolfWise Update - September 2015

This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Golfwise program at the Glencoe Correctional Services facility.

However, as you may or may not have heard, the prison itself burnt down earlier this year which meant the Golfwise program had to be cancelled with immediate effect with both the prisoners and the prison wardens/personnel having to be relocated.

Thankfully no one was hurt and they managed to move all 1112 offenders to other prisons in the Northern KZN region.

The PGA recently received an update from Lappies Labuschagne who reported that nothing has happened yet and that the prison remains as it was after the fire.

So, until further notice, the Golfwise program is on hold in anticipation of the program restarting in 2016.
