FOR sporting enthusiasts who like to combine golf with a bit of cricket, or vice versa, Humewood Golf Club has set up the perfect combination for the Twenty20 cricket international at Axxess St George’s next week.
In preparation for next month’s T20 World Cup, South Africa and Australia will meet in the first of three T20 internationals on March 9, getting under way at 2.30pm.
Following the Proteas’ thrilling test win at St George’s, this will be another exciting chapter in the cricketing rivalry between the two countries and golfing enthusiasts have a chance to join in the fun.
Humewood Golf Club has set up a morning of golf followed by a ticket to the cricket in the afternoon, with a free meal at the halfway house thrown in.
Billed as “Humewood Boys Will Be Boys Day”, the club is offering a round of 18 holes in a probable shotgun start, plus the cricket, at a cost of R350 a person. For those who do not yet have T20 tickets, this would be an ideal way to combine the two sports.
With many visitors likely to be in the city for the cricket, the Humewood authorities are hoping to attract some new faces to the course, one of the few true links layouts in the country, which is in excellent condition.
Outlining the concept, Humewood committee member Dave Emslie said: “To ensure that our public understands the value and beauty of the Humewood Golf Club we are inviting the boys of Nelson Mandela Bay and the surrounds to join us for a day out on Sunday, March 9.
“What could be better than spending a fun-filled, action-packed sporting day with good friends or taking this opportunity to get to know some of your clients a little better.
“The Humewood Boys Will Be Boys Day will give you the opportunity to enjoy two wonderful sporting events and at the same get to network and meet new people.”
The golf will get under way at about 8.30am and anyone interested can contact Justin Smith (041-583-2137) at the Humewood Golf Club.
