Some of the top female golfers to take part in the tournament include experienced duo of Minky Molatlhegi and Tiny Kgathwane. Both ladies have represented the country at the All Africa Challenge Trophy.
“We will also have Trazinah Marudu who will be officiating. She is lot legible to play because she turned professional,” said Ramphethu.
Ramphethu further said more players fkrom Gaborone, Orapa, Francistown and Selebi Phikwe Golf Clubs are expected to take part in the tournament.
Meanwhile Ramphethu said there will be a red carpet dinner on Saturday evening at the club house.
