Annual Rotary Makro Golf Event in St Francis Just Around the Corner

The annual Rotary Makro golf competition in St Francis Bay is to be played at the ever-popular St Francis Bay Golf Club on 29th April 2017.

The title sponsorship has once again been claimed by retail giant Makro in Port Elizabeth with the intention of raising substantial amounts for Rotary projects in St Francis.  “Makro are very proud to be supporting this event for the fourth year in a row and many of their suppliers have come on board again to support with sponsorships and prizes,” said Rotary chairman Arthur Baggott. “Golfers are expected to travel from as far afield as Plettenberg Bay, Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown for the event and to enjoy a long weekend in lovely St Francis. This event also attracts keen interest from Rotarians countrywide and visiting overseas players.”

“This event is more than just a fundraiser for St Francis Rotary projects,” added Baggott. “It gives us the opportunity to increase awareness in our local and visiting community for the many needy and worthwhile causes we try to support.”

The popular event will see golfers compete for great prizes in a Better Ball competition at R350 entrance which includes halfway house.
