Leg up for women golfers

A GOLF development programme for women has been started at the Soweto Country club.

It kicked off last Sunday with a group of 13 women.

The women will be put on a 12-week development course under the guidance of two former golf champions from the club, Dizzy Mkhwanazi and Zach Mavundla.

The women who will be put in the programme are Busi Stemar, Akhona Xabanisa, Thando Ngwenya, Lindi Morodi, Antoinette Sello, Nolisiwe Ndodana, Maggie Tshehlo, Palesa Mtseba, Keke Moloi, Tebadi Digwamaje, Amber Ndlovu, Thembekile Mchunu and Mirriam Mokhali. Mokhali said she will grab this opportunity with both hands.

Sello said the initiative will help her improve her game as she hoped to participate in many events.

Sello is the granddaughter of Rivonia trialist and active golfer Andrew Mlangeni.

The club's newly elected president Bushie Modise said their aim was to attract more women to play the sport in Soweto.
