The Nedbank Golf Challenge from Above, with Emirates SA.
The Nedbank Golf Challenge is one of the highlights of the South African sporting calendar. In a 39 year history, the event has featured the biggest names in world golf. With 63 players, playing over 4 days, for a purse of $7.5 million. The tournament forms part of the Rolex Series on the European Tour and is the penultimate event on the Race to Dubai. And that is exactly why it's our absolute favourite event of the year!
We were privileged enough to been invited to watch a day filled with the Top Professional Golfers fighting their way through the field to victory at Africa's Major, the 2019 Nedbank Golf Challenge by Emirates South Africa and Clockwork Media.
Entering the suite on the 18th green, we were delighted to see not only did we have the best seats in the house but a view from above, watching all the action whilst fighting off the intense heat with water sprayers, cold beverages, and incredible food on offer.
The suite itself was the epitome of exactly what you would expect from the Emirates brand, class, and simple sophistication. Snacking throughout the day was on the menu with items from their fridges such as prepacked cheese platters, wraps, sandwiches, fruit cups, yoghurts and to drink, well anything you had your heart set on really, plus imagine having access to the ice cream fridge filled with all the favourites, you guessed it, they went all out and proved why they are the best brand who consider the customers every need. Inside, TV screens showcased the live golf that was at the time being screened on Supersport, which was great as you could follow your favourites on the course and then watch all the live-action on the 18th as everyone came in, aircon filled the rooms which were an incredible break from the heat and outside on the viewing balcony, they had erected misting sprays, they thought of everything! The Emirates suite also had private ablutions.
To say that this was a day out we wouldn't forget is quite the understatement. Whether it's their airline or anything relating to their brand they maintain their superb service and representation and truly make you feel like one VIP. Emirates is one of our favourite brands and we are grateful for the day out! Thank you to Clockwork Media for looking after the team and providing us with this incredible opportunity!
