Nashua Challenge heats up Sunshine Tour


Nashua has once again put its sponsorship weight behind golf to produce another world-class golfing event – the Nashua Challenge.

The company has had a longstanding association with The Sunshine Tour together with a strong partnership with the hosts of the event, Sun International, to create first-class golfing tournaments. This partnership produced the Nashua Masters in January at The Wild Coast Sun which was a great success and now, Sun City is gearing up to host The Nashua Challenge, which proves to be one of the highlights on the Sunshine Tour calendar.
The Nashua Challenge is a  Sunshine winter tour event  and runs from the 15-17 May 2008. The Pro-Am tournament consisting of 3 rounds which alternate between the Lost City and Gary Player courses within the Sun City complex, is the perfect platform for amateur golfers to test that their skills are on par with those of the pros.  
Golfers will weave their way through the 7000 meter long Gary Player course and will need to conquer the crocodile infested 13th hole of the Lost City course along the way. The final round will be held at the Gary Player course and following tradition, will be proceeded by a shoot-out between the top 20 pros and Nashua customers, “which has proven to be an exciting event, ending the tournament off with the proverbial bang,” adds David Hallas, marketing manager of Nashua.
Nashua uses these events to provide its customers an opportunity to interact with and learn from the best, of the South African Golfing Professionals.
“Nashua has realised the global impact of golf as well as the opportunity it presents in terms of exposure and is proud to associate the Nashua brand name with world class golfing events such as the Nashua Challenge," says Hallas.
Players in this year’s tournament will be competing for more than R500 000-00 in cash and prizes, and the Nashua Challenge is expected to draw a full field of competitors again this year.
