The Annual Vodacom Blue Bulls Golf Day

The Vodacom Blue Bulls annual golf day took place at the Zwartkops Country Club on 8 October 2014, and was once again one of the highlights of our event calendar.

This event not only gave the players an opportunity to showcase some of their skills on the golf course rather than the usual rugby pitch, but also allowed for sponsors, partners and general members of the public to spend a fun day out in the sun with their rugby heroes, together with team management and board members from the Blue Bulls Rugby Union.

There was no keeping the competitive nature off the greens as the golfers on the day went head-to-head to rein supreme and bag a host of great prizes, and off course the bragging rights that go with it. 

Justin Moreira, Charl Spies, Dieter Boshoff and Jacques Smith showed their supremacy as they bagged the best four ball of the day, each winning a Vodacom Tablet. While Rahid Cassim knocked in the only hole-in-one on the day on the 15thhole, and will no doubt be talking about it for weeks to come. The longest drives for the day were picked up by Assistant coach Pieter Rossouw, Flyhalf Jacques Louis Potgieter and Carlo van Onslin.

The day wasn’t all about the frustration of trying to knock that little white ball around, it was also filled with fun activations by SAB, Medihelp, Blue Bulls Supporters Club, AFGRI, Crown National as well as our main sponsor Vodacom. The Blue Bulls Supporter club teamed up with a digital agency called Content Bar to offer a very interactive and live photo experience.

As most in attendance would have agreed, there’s no finishing a golf day without a good dinner and prize giving ceremony, and most importantly the opportunity to quench the thirst of a some rather parched golfers.  This provided an ideal opportunity for the players to let down their hair a little, and for the business and social networking to kick in.

CEO of the Blue Bulls Company, Barend van Graan, spoke from the heart: “It’s always such a privilege having our players and management socialise with the sponsors and partners, and there’s probably no better environment than on this beautiful golf course.”

Vodacom Blue Bulls captain, Deon Stegmann also commented: “It’s really important for the guys to have a fun day like this, especially going into the business end of the Absa Currie Cup. On behalf of the players I’d like to say a big thank you to everybody that made this day possible, especially our sponsors and partners”
