Overstrand is proud to announce that it is hosting the 2018 Global Golf Challenge ladies golf tournament for the second time.

The Global Challenge is an international invitation charity golf tournament for professional women golfers where a team from the Northern Hemisphere will compete against a team from the Southern Hemisphere.

The event will take place from 9 – 11 November at the Hermanus Golf Club when the North will be back to defend their victory – and the South, under the leadership of Laurette Maritz, will challenge them for it.

The Global Golf Challenge launched their theme song ‘Bang The Drum’ at Dutchies Restaurant at Grotto Beach on Sunday, 11 March. The song has been composed by Mango Groove exclusively for the #BangTheDrum fundraising initiative to raise funds globally to empower disadvantaged communities.

Executive Mayor Dudley Coetzee and Executive Deputy Mayor Elnora Gillion were there to share the joy.

Paralympian tennis and table tennis gold medalist and Global Ambassador, Monique Kalkman, and Team North golf professional, Rachel Raastad, were also present at the launch to hear the song.

• The charities that will benefit from the 2018 Global Golf Challenge are the Full Tummy Fund, Just Care Hermanus, Overstrand Association of Persons with Disabilities (OAPD) and Learn to Earn.

• • Every shot made during this event is done so to raise money for charity through the #BangThe Drum pledge campaign.
