Top junior series travels to Benoni



The Glacier by Sanlam Junior Series, South Africa’s largest junior golf series, travels to Gauteng for the first time this year when the Larry Nestadt Tournament tees off at Benoni Country Club this Sunday.

The first three tournaments on this year’s series have been played in the Western Cape and have already featured some impressive scoring. At two of the three previous tournaments, rounds of 69 were needed to win the elite A Division.

The series features 25 tournaments played around the country, with the winners in each of the A, B and C Divisions qualifying for the National Final later this year. The winner here qualifies for an all-expenses paid trip to compete against some of the world’s top juniors in the Orange Bowl Junior Invitational in America.

Each tournament is sponsored by either a leading professional golfer or South African golf official, institution or benefactor.

Nestadt, who was born in Benoni, has long been a major benefactor of South African golf. As one of the founders of Investec Bank, Nestadt has channelled his passion for golf into supporting the Glacier Junior Series as well as promoting a Sunshine Tour event.

Nestadt himself benefited from the strong junior golf platform in South Africa, and was a scratch golfer by the age of 16. He captained the Air Force Gym golf team, and has continued to serve the game through his passion for it.
