Nedbank Golf Challenge Ticket Prices Unchangedon November 25, 2011
The ticket prices for next month’s Nedbank Golf Challenge will remain exactly the same as last year in a bold move to grow the game and support golf development.
Sun International announced this week that any child under 12 will have the opportunity to watch 12 of the world’s best golfers and eight of the past legends of the game free of charge on all four days.
To make “Africa’s Major” even more affordable for families, all children under 17 will only pay half price for entry every day.
And the adult tickets remain the same as in 2010, namely R80 for the Wednesday (excluding the official programme), R180 on Thursday and Friday (including the official programme), and R200 on Saturday and Sunday (including the official programme).
The result is that a family of four, including a teenager and younger child, could afford to watch the final round of one of world golf’s premier tournaments for the cost of R500. That is roughly the same amount it would cost one person to attend a Springbok rugby test match in South Africa.
“By maintaining the price of the tickets, we are making sure that we make the Nedbank Golf Challenge as accessible to as many people as possible,” said Alastair Roper, the Tournament Director.
“With all children under 12 gaining free access, we hope to encourage the growth of golf in this country. Then, for a child under 17 to only pay half price makes it that much more affordable for the whole family to come and watch the event together.”
The entire gate takings from this year’s tournament will also be donated to golf development.
