KNYSNA NEWS - Eighty-four golfers took to the sloping greens at Simola Golf Estate on Friday 7 June as part of the Famsa Knysna-Plett Golf Day to help raise funds for the organisation. According to Families South Africa's website, the organisation is focused on a healthy, functional family life which to them is a national priority.
"We are committed to promoting family wellbeing. We empower people to build, reconstruct and maintain sound relationships, in the family, in marriage and in the communities," the website's "About Us" section reads.
This year's golf day was the organisation's second such fundraiser, which is a vitally important means of procuring monies for Famsa which primarily relies on sponsorships and fundraising to keep its doors open, allowing them to keep doing the work they do. The Knysna-Plett branch got 84 golfers together for the day, who teed off at 11:30 with a shotgun start setting the full field of players off.
While the main aim of the day was to help procure and raise funds for Famsa Knysna-Plett, an air of friendly competition wafted around the stunning course that overlooks the estuary. This saw Kevin Viljoen, Edwin Juries, Lawrence Boer, and Jaco Prins emerge victorious with 103 points while Shaun Price and William Cunningham claimed nearest to the pin title on the 9th and 17th holes respectively, with Hannes Nel earning himself the longest drive crown on the 18th hole.
