Hundreds of Golfers ascended to Koro Creek Bushveld Golf Estate in Modimolle for yet another edition of the annual Kudu Amateur Golf Championship.

The annual flagship golf event which is more of a social event took place from 17-19 November.

The event is supported by Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA) who have a three-year partnership from 2021 until 2023.


Since its inception in 2016 the event has seen a significant growth of golfers from various parts of the province and our neighbouring provinces. Both male and female.

This year was no exception as there was an increased number of female participants. Mash Makena, who won the longest drive at the competition, has described the experience as fulfilling.

“The Tournament was amazing especially because it’s the first time I took part in the tournament,” she told Limpopo Chronicle.

“Being a lady and competing against men, normally they drive longer than us ladies. But because we always expect men to get it so it was much more fulfilling and a good experience for me. So, I think I enjoyed the tournament all in all.

“Most of the time playing as a lady you don’t feel as important as the man does. But with this one it was completely different,” she explained.

“We played with different people and all the people that we played with were actually welcoming and it was an amazing experience. We made new friendships and learnt a thing or two from them so it was just an amazing experience.”
