The second CMASA Africa Inter Club Challenge at Fancourt was another resounding success.

Congratulations to the winning team of Rob Moodie and Phillip Wolk from East London Golf Club who were victorious on overall points of 146. Their prize is an all-expenses paid entry for them to defend their title next year, valued at R24 000.

The purpose of this event is to promote CMASA as the representative body for all sports and recreational clubs in Southern. CMASA offers members access to information on international and local best practice material relating to the management of their clubs as well as seen as the preferred partner in education, training, resources and recruitment solutions for the club industry.

Today's club manager may be expected to manage a complex and sometimes large property of several hectares; maintain multiple buildings and facilities; provide sports and leisure services for members and visitors; manage a team of employees and contractors; promote the business to the local, regional, national and in many cases international communities and of course manage the club's finances efficiently and prudently

The event is open to general club members, to educate them on the services and benefits that we provide to the club industry, and to network and interact with members from other clubs, by means of an annual golf event.

Grateful appreciation is expressed to our main sponsors; SAB (Stella Artois) and Louis57 Wines for quenching the players constant thirst. THANK YOU for assisting us in creating and delivering this memorable event.
