THE Sanlam Cancer Challenge will celebrate its 21st anniversary as South Africa's biggest charity golf tournament when the national finals of the 2013 edition are played at Sun City on Monday and Tuesday.
More than 36000 golfers took part in this year's challenge, including 801 nationwide club competitions that teed off in February as part of the drive to raise funds for the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa).
Golfers who qualified through the regional finals in their respective A, B and C divisions will contest the national finals on the golf courses at the Gary Player Country Club and Lost City.
With Ernie Els as the patron of the event, this year's competition has aimed to raise R3.2-million for Cansa.
"We have had incredible support from golf clubs around South Africa and in Namibia, so I am sure we will reach that target," Sanlam sponsorship manager Gary van Loggerenberg said.
