Tubatse Golf Day 2014
Having adopted the philosophy that “a good business is a business that does good for others” was once again portrayed when Thorburn Security Solutions (Northern Region) held their annual Sekhukhune Community Golf Day at the Tubatse Chrome Club near Steelpoort in Mpumalanga, on 5 April 2014.
It is the Thorburn ethos to give back to the communities where we conduct business and in addition to our customer representatives participating, schools, local leaders and community organisations were also present at the golf day. Of the 44 players, 30 received prizes, however everyone partook in the good food prepared, a well maintained course, drinks, golf shirts, towels and other “goodies”. Thorburn Holdings CEO, F.C. Smit and Northern Region MD, Dolf Scheepers also participated in the day, showing great sportsmanship and support.
The annual highlight is the recognition and reward of the local Sekhukhune caddies and this year was no exception as a team of caddies were included in the tournament as players – fully kitted out by Thorburn.
New caddie bibs for the Tubatse Chrome Club caddies were sponsored by Thorburn in an effort to have them identifiable as caddies and also to uplift their presentability to ultimately align with the image of the Tubatse Chrome Club. This is the second upgrade of the caddies bibs undertaken by Thorburn in the past 4 years
A new addition to the Thorburn Community Golf Day was the participation by two new Thorburn subsidiaries – Thorburn Technical Solutions (North) and Thorburn Cleaning Services, both of which will be providing their respective specialist services in the Sekhukhune area in the immediate future.
