Friday 9 May saw the South African Institute of Security hold its 9th Annual Charity Golf Day at Waterkloof Golf Course and sponsored by Omega Risk Solutions. This year saw an even bigger event with 38 four-balls participating. Many of the holes had been sponsored by various companies who provided drinks to the thirsty golfers as the weather proved one of those wonderful warm autumn days that you can only find on the highveld. Toits Nissan once again provided a car should anyone manage that elusive hole in one - and once again no-one managed to drive it home.
The evening saw the golfers and their guests being entertained by Eddie Eckstein. Prizes were presented for the closest to the pin on various holes, the longest drive and the longest day.
Overall winners were the team from the SAPS, consisting of Commissioner Morgan Chetty, director Piet Croucamp, director Stefan Pieterse and Savan Marimuthu, with Mike Cowley's team second and the team from Sun City placed third.
The Charity that benefited this year was the South African Police Widows' and Orphans' Fund and the cheque was accepted on their behalf by director Stefan Pieterse.
The evening culminated in an auction of some sporting memorabilia with proceeds going to the Institute's Bursary Fund.
Next year SAIS will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of its Golf Day - Omega has already offered to sponsor this again and the date has been booked at Waterkloof for Friday 8 May.
