Situated on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal in Pennington, the Selborne Golf Estate will be hosting the annual Selborne Classic tournament from 05 until 07 August. All competitions played during the three-day Selborne Classic will be in teams of four with Friday and Saturday following a betterball format and Sunday a fourball alliance.
The tournament is co-sponsored by Halfway Toyota Scottburgh. On Friday 5 August, each team of four will be divided into two teams and assigned another team to compete against. First, second and third prizes will be awarded for the day, relative to the betterball pairings.
On Saturday 6 August, the betterball competition will follow Friday’s format although golfers must change partners within each two ball. The partner change is in keeping with the spirit of the tournament which encourages camaraderie while introducing golfers to different players. Once again, first, second and third prizes will be awarded.
On Sunday 7 August, each team will play a fourball alliance, two scores to count, format and the top five alliance prizes will be awarded on the day. This will be followed by the Selborne Classic overall prizegiving which will see the top 10 teams awarded some fantastic prizes. There will also be raffles held throughout the tournament, nearest-to-pins on all four shorts, mystery prizes daily as well as fun activities on each tee provided by sponsors.
This year, competitors will also be given the unique opportunity to participate in Selborne’s newly introduced Par 3 Challenge Tournament which will take place directly after the Selborne Classic on Monday 8 August.
