Sable International Clovelly Corporate Golf Day

by Sable International | Dec 01, 2011
  • As the morning mist rolled back, we were once again reminded that not much can beat a sunny summer’s day in Cape Town and what better place could Sable International have chosen for their corporate golf day than the Clovelly Country Club nestled in the beautiful valley between False Bay and Noordhoek.

    With an oversubscribed field, the men’s Wednesday competition was a great success. We we’re honoured by the presence of Raymond Ackerman, one of South Africa’s most successful businessmen, who likes to spend most of his free time playing golf.

    The first 4-ball teed off at 12pm with all of the Sable consultants in attendance. After lots of chatting with the golfers, they then drifted off to the 6th tee watering hole to make sure the golfers were fed and refreshed on their way through (with some colourful shooters on offer!).

    Lots of interesting shots (golf, that is) followed and we were assured by many players later in the bar that the drives we witnessed were definitely their worst of the day.

    “Who is Sable International and what do they do?” was a frequently asked question during the day and Andrew Rissik (the MD) was given the opportunity to answer this during a short presentation before the prize giving.

    A stunning day on the course and a great networking event culminated with a well-attended prize giving ceremony. Some fantastic prizes (sponsored by Sable) were available, with the main prize going to Darren and David van Eyk. Thanks are due to the generous sponsorship by The Garden Route Golf Passport of two Standard Passports which Hilly Nachman of Pick ‘n Pay won in the grand draw.

    All Sable consultants managed to engage with many of the golfers, business cards were exchanged and we are currently dealing with some Forex enquiries that were generated on the day.

    Many thanks to Lauren Walker and the FX team for all their efforts in ensuring that Sable laid on a very enjoyable and successful day.
