Bank Windhoek’s Head of Stakeholder Engagement, Corporate Social Resposnibility and Sponsorships, Bronwyn Moody, said the Bank’s support for golf is encouraged by the unique combination of the sport’s physical and mental benefits. “Golf improves motivation and allows for meaningful social and business networking opportunities. By partnering with the Windhoek Golf Club, Bank Windhoek creates sustainable relationships within communities and sees them collaborate to improve their communities,” she said.

Windhoek Golf Club captain Gustav Jung applauded all participants for the great turnout throughout the day. He thanked Bank Windhoek for its repeated sponsorship of the Cup. “Support towards golf events in Namibia is vital to attract participation and contributes to the overall development of golf,” he said.

Laban Malule, who has been playing for 26 years, and Lovisa Vilho, who now plays for about four years, won the Cup on Saturday. Malule says that although this was not his first time winning a golf cup or tournament, “Winning is always an overwhelming feeling. We went out there to have fun, not knowing we would win the competition,” he said. He added that a good golfer continues to practice the sport and always applies golf etiquette.
