Rossmund to host Nedbank Desert Classic in December

11 November 2020 | Sports

Nedbank Namibia has once again committed N$110,000.00 (one hundred and ten thousand Namibian dollars) towards hosting the Nedbank Desert Classic golf event at the Rossmund Golf Course, in Swakopmund


JG van Graan, Nedbank Namibia’s Chief Financial Officer, says that with the success of last year’s event, Nedbank is excited to once again be part of the golf event scheduled for 28 and 29 December.

“The Nedbank Desert Classic event usually draws some of the top golf players in Namibia and our aim is to present them with a world class experience when they step onto the Rossmund Golf Course in December.”

Dan Zwiebel of DZ Golf explained that this year’s Nedbank Desert Classic will follow a betterball stableford format with a scramble drive.
“The field can accommodate 72 teams, and these will be allocated on a first come first served basis,” said Zwiebel.

The event is billed to cater for the entire family.

Entries close on 20 December. Entry fees will once again be N$1 000,00 per player and will include both green and competition fees, as well as top-notch welcoming gifts, halfway house treats for both golfing days and a prize giving lunch for all participants.

The Nedbank Desert Classic provides the perfect backdrop to end off both an engaging year and month for Nedbank Namibia in Swakopmund, considering the fact that the bank is also hosting the Nedbank Desert Dash on 11 and 12 December, as well as the Nedbank Swakopmund Food Festival on 18 and 19 December at the coastal town.

The 2019 Nedbank Namibia Desert Classic winner Vincent van Biljon and Arne Rodenwoldt won themselves an all-expenses paid experience to the 2020 Nedbank Golf Challenge.

The duo won the 2019 edition of the Nedbank Desert Classic with a score of 93 points.

Local favourites, Gert Breedt and Andrew van Schalkwyk finished second with the Walvis Bay due of Pieter Fox and Wouter van Wijk in the third position.
