“We are very excited to host our 2nd season grand finale event in Gauteng” said Jenny Havenga, founder and promoter of the Standard Bank Pro-am Series and Standard Bank Golf Development Programme

“One of our main objectives is to drive and champion the growth of women’s golf in South Africa, from developmental stages through to professional levels. Our sponsor, Standard Bank have been of great support and the game is growing. Our host venue Randpark- Firethorn is a championship golf course and a true test of golf, and I’m sure we’re going to see some great golf”. said Jenny Havenga

We have already seen in tournaments that there is great competition in the series; we saw how Nadia van der Westhuizen fought back at Serengeti to end up losing by two. We saw how brilliantly Isabella van Rooyen played in Cape Town and how consistent Bonita Bredenhann has been not to mention Tandi’s Mc Callum’s rise to the winners circle multiple times. Lindi Coetzee is always there or thereabouts and Casandra Alexander’s “come from behind” finish at Houghton was simply outstanding.

Whether they’ll be playing for the final breakthrough win, or order of merit placings or the prestige of being the winner of the Standard Bank Pro-Am Invitational tournament here; there will be a lot to play for.

Our golf development programme is also doing great things in the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, in Orange Farm as well as at Serengeti. With approximately 100 young girls under The Standard Bank Golf Development programme at the end of the 2nd season we are seeing great results and progress from these young learners” said Barbara Pestana from the Women’s Professional Golf Association.

Initiated by Lifestyle Golf, and in collaboration with the Women’s Professional Golf Association (WPGA), the series, which is now in its second year, is aimed at growing women’s golf on all levels and creating opportunities for them to play professionally throughout the year, which will enable them to hone their skills further.
