As the whole country honors women from all walks of life throughout the month of August, at UKZN Extended Learning, we recently hosted a Women’s Golf Clinic event for the hardworking women from our partner organisations, which took place at the University’s Indie Golf Driving Range. Since the inception of the Extended Learning at the University in 2011, we have partnered with numerous organisations, offering skills training programmes which progressively impact the business operations as well as personal growth and development of employees.
The event was merely an appreciation day filled with many exciting activities such as basic tutorials on handling the golf club, swing correction and putting; lessons on self-defense; and relaxing spa treatments. As the ladies took part in the different golf exercises, those who had the best shots in their respective groups received prizes for doing well as this was their first attempt at playing golf. We also had a few spontaneous games coupled with an exciting dance competition and lucky draw prize giveaways.
The event was a great success, not only did the ladies take home hampers and goodie bags, but they left empowered having learnt the basic golf skills and self-defense tactics. We would like to thank our sponsors, Tsogo Sun, Avis, Intombi, Eagle Stationers, Pepsi and Red Square for making this such a memorable event for our guests.
