Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jan 18, 2016 - Golf Partners Worldwide are delighted to confirm that International Pairs is now presented by Golf RSA which is now the unified governing body of amateur golf in South Africa. In partnership with Namibian Breweries, the event will be launched as the Windhoek Lager International Pairs. Preparations are well in hand for the imminent launch of the event and clubs throughout South Africa have already been notified of the change in ownership.
International Pairs has a proud history in South Africa and Ian Stevenson, Global Sponsorship and Events Manager of Namibian Breweries Limited sees the event as a perfect fit for Windhoek Lager. “These values are echoed in Windhoek Lager which is brewed to the Reinheitsgetbot (Purity Law) of 1516.
“Our beers contain only malted, barley hops and water and the game of golf, like Windhoek Lager, has successfully survived many attempts to change the process. It continues to flourish with its authentic values and traditions, remaining true to itself. “We pride ourselves on our involvement as the sponsor of the Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket Golf Championship and the addition of the Windhoek Lager International Pairs presented by Golf RSA is another perfect fit for us.”
President of the South African Golf Association, Gerhard Conradie, was delighted with the partnership which he sees as a long-term investment into the game to benefit the average club member. Conradie went on to say “We are always looking for ways to boost the game for club members and we believe the Windhoek Lager International Pairs offers something new and exciting.”
Patrick Mulcrone, Managing Director of Golf Partners Worldwide said “It’s been a great start to 2016. Golf RSA and Windhoek Lager International Pairs is the perfect partnership to promote amateur golf in South Africa. Their vision on growing the event throughout the region is an exciting prospect for us and we look forward to working with them. Our team has been working hard to build our network of countries in 2015 and with Golf RSA and Windhoek Lager leading the way we are looking to add new countries for 2016.”
After many years of hosting International Pairs in Scotland, Golf Partners Worldwide took the decision to move the event out of the ‘Home of Golf’ to sunnier climes. The 2016 World Final will be staged in Spain for the second year running at The Marriott Le Sella Golf Resort in November 2016. Source :
