Speech - Minister: 30th Anniversary of the Nedbank Golf Challenge - 1 December 2010

So big has the tournament become over the years, that it attracts not only the die-hard golf fans and masters like you but even budding golfers like me, whose role can only be to join the rest on the nineteenth hole! Tonight is yet another symbolic event and an important landmark in the history of our burgeoning and progressing democracy. We have in the past sixteen years experienced rapid growth and fundamental movement towards national unity, social cohesion and all round development. This movement has inevitably placed South Africa on the world map and shown to all and sundry that our South Africa is indeed alive with possibilities! True to this, is our success over the years to host a surfeit of international events such as: The Rugby World Cup in 1995 The African Cup of Nations in 1996 The World Conference Against Racism in 2001 The World Conference on Sustainable Development in 2002, The recent FIFA World Cup in 2010 and many other significant events The Nedbank Golf Challenge for the past 30 years have also contributed immensely to put South Africa on the World map and compete as equal partners in the international arena.
