The Nedbank for Autism Series is teeing-off this Saturday, 6 August, at the Oshakati Golf Club. The overarching purpose for the Nedbank Autism Series is to create awareness for the Autism Association of Namibia, through pledges and donations. In 2021, the Nedbank Autism Series raised a total of N$ 200 000, towards the Autism Association of Namibia.
The 10-event 2022 edition of the series has concluded its first five events in style, with the recent being held in Tsumeb on 14 May 2022, where Terus Burger finished with a total of 36 points; and in Mariental on 23 July 2022, where Kiewiet Dreyer won with 36 points.
Nedbank Autism Series event coordinator, Dan Zwiebel, stated that this leg of the series promises to showcase emerging talent as the golfing community in the northern part of the country have started embracing the fluency one needs to excel at the sport. “Oshakati is a very special stop for the Nedbank for Autism Series, as the club is active with developing golf. The club boasts a rich line up of young talent, and experienced golfers; and we are thrilled we get to see the older and younger generation of golfers compete on the same grounds”, Zwiebel says.
