The annual Legends Fund Golf Day took place at the picturesque Belmont Golf Club on Friday 11 June 2021. The clear skies and warm winter sunshine set the scene for a great day of golf that was enjoyed by about 80 golfers.
This day that has been superbly organized by Gregg Rippon and Warren Henry for a number of years now has provided an amazing financial support for the Legends Fund – a fund that provides financial support for deserving children to attend Kingswood.
Days like this cannot take place without the support of the sponsors (Kwandwe Private Game Reserve’s Great Fish River Lodge (Eastern Cape), Pearl Valley Hotel, Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, Pearl Valley at Val de Vie Estate (Mantis), Pumba Private Game Reserve (Eastern Cape) and The Old Rectory (Plettenberg Bay)), many of whom have sponsored for a number of years since the inception of this event. We are indeed grateful to them and really do appreciate their commitment to this good cause.
The Belmont was in immaculate condition which certainly added to the pleasant golfing experience. Our thanks to the club for making their facility available for the day – we are so fortunate to have this first-class facility on our doorstep.
An event such as this also cannot take place without the players. We are indeed grateful to those who travelled great distances to take part – what a stout effort. Alumni and parents from our fellow Makhanda schools also entered and we really do appreciate their support. Makhanda has a great community and it is indeed special when the various schools can support each other at events such as these.
Each year the Legends Golf Day heralds the start of a festive K-Day weekend and 2022 will hopefully see some normality back and K-Day once again in the calendar, so if you are planning to make the trek to Makhanda for K-Day after our two year break, make sure you book your tee-off time well in advance to avoid missing out!
What is the Legends Fund?
The Legends Fund is a bursary fund that specifically aims to recognise well-rounded young people of exceptional character who hold the potential to become remarkable Kingswoodians, leaders and role models. Children who embrace the spirit of what it means to be a Kingswoodian, and seek to make a difference in the world around them.
Through the Legends Fund you can give as little as R150 per month and know that, because of our collective giving, you will make a remarkable impact on a child’s life, who will in turn enrich the lives of those at Kingswood, each and every time you give.
