The CMH Volvo Cars Westrand & Blair Atholl Member Guest Golf Challenge – Once again, we joined our dear friends at Blair Atholl for a challenging two days of golf (22nd -23rd March) on the world class golf course at the Estate designed by Masters’ Legend and golf guru Mr. Gary Player.
Day 1 would allow the participants to familiarise themselves with the Golf and would give them an opportunity to see the vast expanse of the fairways and greens and started to filter the amateur golfer from the semi pros. With its long par 3s it became evident that this course is not necessarily that accommodating for those individuals or groups whom play the casual 4 ball over a round of drinks. This course is more likely to give you a workout, followed by strained muscles and challenge your inner Phil Mickelson or Tiger Woods.
The fairways and greens were lush for the following days break and tee off. Light catering of choc muffins and toasties were available with amazing coffee for the connoisseur. The day’s activities began with a 9.00 am departure of the first few pairs with a halfway house at 9 holes and light meal served as the players came in for lunch.
We had our precious XC range slowly being positioned around the first tee box and last green on the course, ready to mesmerise the crowd on the mezzanine/ balcony of the classically styled and stone masonry clubhouse.
The final pair came in at 14:30 in time for the prize giving where our two winners Wim and Jaco Jansen won a trip to the Volvo manufacturing plant to enjoy the ultimate Volvo Experience, in Gothenburg Sweden.
A stunning location with an itinerary supplied by Volvo Car South Africa to ensure a hospitable and memorable trip abroad. A light dinner party concluded the weekend’s activity. Blair Atholl is pure elegance and sophistication and we are proud sponsors to continue the partnership that represents our premium brand.
