Golf Development Programme
The Sports Trust Golf Challenge, the annual golf fundraiser that takes place the day after the last day of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, has raised over R22 million since 1999 towards the transformation and development of golf in South Africa.
Nedbank and Sun International – founding trustees of The Sports Trust – host the event. The Sports Trust Golf Challenge sees corporates competing against each other to raise funds that are distributed to two golf development organisations, namely the South African Golf Development Board and the South African Disabled Golf Association.
As part of golf development Nedbank supports the First Swing Programme, which includes a series of clinics at participating schools across South Africa for disabled children and youth – focusing on golf development and rehabilitation through golf. The programme has been highly successful in producing skilled golfers and coaches.
