GARY PLAYER WANTS TO BE REMEMBERED AS MORE THAN A GREAT GOLFER

Gary Player is recognised worldwide as one of golf’s most iconic figures. But the Black Knight says he hopes to rather be remembered more for his humanitarian work than his illustrious golf career. “Golf has been incredible to me. Yes I have worked hard but I am forever grateful for the talent that has been loaned to me. I believe that when a man is able to help his fellow man, that’s a far more important legacy than how many tournaments I was able to win or how well I could hit a little white ball,” said Player, who this November will host the 17th edition of his charity tournament, the Gary Player Invitational presented by Coca-Cola at Sun City. The tournament will bring together business leaders, sports stars, celebrities and professional golfers on the fairways of the Lost City Golf Course from 23-26 November in the spirit of Golf […]

GOLF AND GIVING AT THE BERENBERG GARY PLAYER INVITATIONAL

We had a wonderful event at Wentworth Club, just outside London, for our recent Gary Player Invitational, which was another overwhelming success. I continue to be touched by the generosity and support of the players and sponsors and was thrilled by the funds we have been able to raise this year. Through our banner of ‘Golf and Giving’ and with the help of Berenberg, Rolex, SAP, Lavazza, UPS and Porsche, we generated more than $166,000, taking our total raised by The Player Foundation to more than $63 million for charitable causes worldwide, bringing us closer to our target of $100 million by 2025. Depaul, the youth homelessness charity, benefitted from the event and having visited Depaul recently and seen the situation where young people are sleeping on the streets, I can testify to the significant difference the money raised during the event makes, and the positive impact it continues to […]

THE NEDBANK GOLF CHALLENGE HOSTED BY GARY PLAYER WILL INTRODUCE FAN USE OF CELLPHONES 

The European Tour has a new mobile phone policy that will be in effect for the first time at this year’s Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City from November 9-12. As Gary Player says, “Change is the price of survival.” Allowing fans to use their mobile devices to enjoy the experience at one of the world’s top golf courses is paramount to the fan experience and overall success of the tournament. The Gary Player Country Club is a very walkable and spectator friendly course for fans of all ages. In 2016, the Nedbank Golf Challenge introduced their very own mobile app which allowed fans to earn points and rewards for visiting different locations throughout the course. Fans also are sent notifications when special events take place such as when players will be at certain autograph locations. Prior to fans using […]
