CPUT hosted the 26th two-day annual National Intervarsity Staff Golf Tournament at the Arabella Golf Course in Kleinmond and the Hermanus Golf Course.

The nine participating institutions were CPUT, Durban University of Technology (DUT), North West University (NWU), Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University (SMU), Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), University of Johannesburg (UJ), University of Limpopo (UL), University of South Africa (UNISA) and Vaal University of Technology (VUT).

Vice-Chancellor Prof Chris Nhlapho hit the ceremonial opening tee shot to kick start the tournament on the legendary Arabella Golf Course, an 18-hole, Par 72 championship course which has consistently been ranked in the top 10 courses in the country.

The second day of the tournament took place at the classic Hermanus Golf Course. This was challenging as the wind picked up quite strongly but the golfers had an overall great experience. A group of first-year Sports Management students assisted at the waterholes and halfway house on both days of the tournament, where they offered cold beverages and snacks to the golfers.

Business Unit Manager and tournament co-ordinator, Johnny Basson, said this year’s tournament was rated by participants as the best in its 26-year-history. “I want to congratulate the Tshwane University of Technology A-team for winning the team competition and congratulations to Nick Sfarnas, from UJ, for winning the individual competition.”

CPUT’s B and C teams ended in second and third place respectively. “I want to thank all our sponsors for generously contributing to this prestigious event. The feedback from the other universities are that CPUT has set such a high standard in hosting this event this year that it will be a huge challenge for the host of 2020 to maintain the high standard,” Basson said.

CPUT retired lecturer, Frank van der Linde, said: “A big thank you for all the effort and camaraderie to make our institution proud – this was the best marketing campaign and left a major impression on the golfers of the other institutions, a job well done.”
