Nedbank for Good Series introducing female golfers this weekend

The second round of the Nedbank for Good Series, set to take place in Gobabis on Saturday, will see the introduction of female golfers to the competition which raises funds for the less fortunate.

The Nedbank for Good Series, previously known as the Nedbank for Autism Series, creates awareness and assists multiple social institutions, initiatives and projects through golf days where they raise funds which are channelled to the different charity organisations.

This year the series will host 10 events across the country, with the second round scheduled for the Gobabis Golf Club on Saturday, 13 May 2023.

A statement availed to Nampa on Wednesday quoted Dan Zwiebel, golf coordinator and Nedbank for Good Series event organiser, as saying he is excited to see women golfers participating in the second round of the series.

“I am happy to see golfers getting back on the road for this event and thrilled about the new developments the team is rolling out. We are having the second-biggest field of 35 golf players set to play since the inception of the series,” he said, adding that seven female golfers will be making their debut this weekend.

Meanwhile, Nedbank Namibia Head of Marketing and Communications Gernot de Klerk stated that the bank is honoured to be part of this initiative and will keep its momentum throughout the duration of the series as it has done in the past.

“The success of the previous series is testament to the generosity and compassion of every player who takes time out to play and support the causes,” he said.

This year’s series also comes with the introduction of the Rössing Foundation’s Mobile Laboratory for Science and Mathematics. Nedbank Namibia donated an initial N.dollars 250 000 towards the laboratory. The laboratory will be used at schools that do not have easy access to education centres due to their remote locations to support education in English, mathematics and science.
