Come and join the PBCPA and Gary Player on the 8th of November, at Gary Players Signature Golf Course in Plettenberg Bay, “Goose Valley,” for an entertaining, educational and fun golfing day and stand a chance to win great prizes.
Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to rub shoulders with Gary Player! Player has won 167 tournaments over seven decades and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974. He’s one of only five players to achieve a career Grand Slam and was the third to do so. His victory at the 1965 U.S. Open made Player the only non-American to win all four Majors. During his career, Player won nine Major Championships on the Regular Tour and nine Major Championships on the Champions Tour. At the age of 29, Player won the 1965 U.S. Open and became the only non-American to win all four Majors in a career, known as the career Grand Slam. At the time, he was the youngest player to do this, though Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods subsequently broke this record. Player became the third golfer in history to win the career Grand Slam, following Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen, and only Nicklaus and Woods have performed the feat since.
Plettenberg Bay is one of those unique gems on this planet and certainly one of the most soughtafter places to visit or live in South Africa. One factor that has impacted enormously on its continued success as a highly desirable holiday and investment destination, is the very low levels of crime in the area making Plett a safe place to live and visit.
For approximately nine years the PBCPA, (Plettenberg Bay Crime Prevention Association) has made a major contribution in ensuring that Plett is and remains a safe place in which the hard-working and honest members of our society are able to flourish, prosper and live secure safe lives, and a difficult environment for criminals to operate in.
The PBCPA is a voluntary association which constitutes an umbrella organisation under which committed organisations and individuals work together and commit their energy and resources towards ensuring that Plett remains the safe and secure paradise that we know so well, love and appreciate. In order to be effective, these endeavours cost a significant amount of money to fund both equipment and operational expenses and it is appropriate that members of the community who are the beneficiaries of all the hard work make a contribution towards meeting these expenses. As part of the endeavours to raise the necessary funding, ongoing fundraising activities are necessary of which this event is a part. All funds go towards training, cameras, radio fees, dedicated vehicles and many other initiatives to ensure the continued success of the PBCPA.
Amongst many other operational resources, the PBCPA runs a 24/7 “all emergencies” hotline and reading the recent local newspapers reflects how busy and committed these volunteers are on an ongoing daily basis. The PBCPA is also actively involved in crime prevention in the form of Drug abuse prevention campaigns, Criminal Rehabilitation, and other projects to educate our future leaders of society in the form of the youth and reverse the moral decay of society by restoring trust and honesty.
