Rainy weather could not dampen the spirit of excitement amongst the group of about eighty golfers who joined NMMU Chancellor, Santie Botha, at Kingswood Golf Course in George on 16 October for the Chancellor’s Golf Day – the first of its kind to be hosted in George.

Chair of Council, Judge Ronnie Pillay, the NMMU George Campus Principal, Prof Quinton Johnson, Drs Gary Paul (Director: Human Resources at NMMU) and Nico Jooste (Snr Director: Office for International Education), Mr Martin Loubser (Director: Operations) and other staff members of the university, along with golfers from the Southern Cape, participated in the golf day. 

Through this successful inaugural event, more than R100 000 was raised for the NMMU George Campus Student Development/Bursary Fund.  It is set to become a permanent feature on the Annual NMMU Events Calendar

The anchor sponsor was Momentum.
