The Els Club 2016 – Grand Central Motors – Holiday Golf Festival

It’s time to put down the carving knife and fork and pick up some serious irons. Maybe you ate a whole Toblerone in one go, or perhaps you’re feeling a little green after one too many whiskeys. Fear not – we have the perfect way to get those competitive juices flowing. This is one golf event you won’t want to miss, so flag it in your diaries. The Els Club 2016 – Grand Central Motors Holiday Golf Festival. Because turkeys aren’t the only Christmas birdie.

The Els Club at Copperleaf is steeped in tradition. Only the second ‘Signature’ Ernie Els-designed golf course in South Africa, it lies on land once farmed by Ernie Els’ own grandfather. Today, we’re establishing a new golfing tradition with our annual Holiday Golf Festival, brought to you in association with Grand Central Motors.

It’s your chance to play one of the best courses in South Africa, plus lots of festive cheer with fun golfing and non-golfing competitions. Each day will have its own theme and unique playing challenge. Fancy dress isn’t compulsory, but why not hit your ball into the bunker of fashion and see what you can find to accessorise your usual playing ground?

We tee off on Monday 26 December, the Day of Goodwill, with our Sports Theme – Betterball Stableford day. Spot fines for anyone dressed as a tiger, and great prizes (to be won daily). Will you be our best-dressed golfer, or finish closest to the pins? There’ll also be individual and team prizes, plus the chance to win the daily shoot-out from the clubhouse patio.

The following day, Tuesday 27 December, it’s our Beach Theme – Mystery 4Ball Alliance. You’re welcome to give the spectators some waves, but do still try and steer clear of the sand and water. Should you hit with excessive slice in your Hawaiian shirt, you may well be advised to hit it at aloha angle…

Wednesday 28 December is our Italian Mafia Theme – 2 Ball Multiplier. Dark glasses and skinny ties will be the order of the day. Whether you’re above or below par, just don’t go singing like a canary. Pay your respects to course designer, Ernie Els – one of the godfathers of golf. And when the time comes to go, leave your score card but take the cannoli.

On the last day of the Festival, Thursday 29 December, declare your love for golf. It’s our Romeo Juliet Red – Bogey’s Your Friend day. Same great daily prizes, and as throughout the Festival, you can check out our “driving range” display of amazing cars.

Entry fees are just Members’ Rate plus R100 comp fee. Member’s guests play for R450 per day, and affiliated visitors for just R550. Includes green fees and use of a golf cart.
