In March, the picturesque Kyalami Country Club played host to Power Build’s inaugural suppliers charity golf day, a resounding success that combined camaraderie, sportsmanship, and philanthropy.  

Power Build golf day team tee off.

With a full field of 28 four balls, the event marked a memorable debut for Power Build and its suppliers, bolstered by the generous support of sponsors such as Halfway House sponsor, Heunis Steel and Title sponsor Evolution Valves. The day wasn’t just about swinging clubs; it was about swinging into action for a good cause.  

All proceeds from the event were dedicated to ‘Good Morning Angels’, an initiative spearheaded by Jacaranda Stereo and Martin Bester , which has been transforming lives for over seven years. Through this platform, the voiceless find their voices, as the team tirelessly identifies and aids those in need, making a tangible impact in the community.  

The golfing action followed a unique format designed for both fairness and entertainment. A four-ball alliance with two scores to count, coupled with scramble drives on all holes, ensured that every player felt the thrill of contribution. Additionally, a fines system injected an extra element of fun, with quirky titles like ‘Dam Duiker’ and ‘M I A’ adding to the fun atmosphere.  

Throughout the course, golfers vied for prizes on designated nearest pin and longest drive holes, with an enticing R500 000 hole-in-one incentive adding to the excitement. The vibrant display of sponsor gazebos, coupled with snacks and refreshments, turned the Kyalami golf course into a lively spectacle, befitting of such a worthy cause.  

Once the golfing was concluded, the festivities continued with pre-prize-giving cocktails, followed by a heartfelt welcome from Power Build MD Armand Feldtmann. Thanking suppliers, Feldtmann thanked suppliers, acknowledging the event’s key supporters, Evolution Valves and Heunis Steel.  The Power Build and Green Beetle Branding teams were singled out for their contribution in making the event so successful.  

The prize-giving ceremony, led by renowned MC Pieter Koen, was a highlight of the evening, as players were rewarded for their efforts on the green. From valuable tools to coveted work tables, every four-ball left with a prize in hand, courtesy of generous sponsors.  

The top 2 teams for the day were:  

2nd –  Academy Brushware – each member winning a Swartland Work Table.   

1st – Lasher – each member winning a Hikoki Power Tool.   

Yet, the generosity didn’t end there. An exciting auction, featuring rare rugby memorabilia, saw bids soar, with proceeds totalling an impressive R90 500 for Good Morning Angels. A corporate challenge was introduced, where an anonymous supplier challenged other corporate suppliers to match or beat their donation of R8 000. Promac Paints (R15 000) Tahir  Construction (R20 000) and Power Build themselves (R17 000) all stepped up to the challenge resulting in an additional R60 000 being raised bringing the total to a staggering R150 500.  

The night ended with a sumptuous dinner, guests departed knowing they had not only enjoyed a day of golf but had also made a meaningful contribution to the community.
