  • SHARE
Mauritius, April 26: Gert Myburgh Senior from South Africa has been announced as the winner of the VIP Experience at this year’s AfrAsia Bank Mauritus Open. Myburgh Senior, who will take his wife on the trip, has won two return air tickets to Mauritius, and a 5-day stay  at the prestigious Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resorts. The prize also includes one entry to participate in the coveted Pro-Am organised before the tournament, as well as full access to the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open tournament.
“I discovered a long time ago that in a story I could safely dream any dream, hope any hope, go anywhere I please, and any time I please. Not all dreamers are winners, but all winners are dreamers. We are crazy happy that this dream came true at last. This is going to be the honeymoon we never had, after almost 34 years of married life, and our first time outside the borders of South Africa. It couldn't have come at a better time in our lives,” said Myburgh Senior commenting on his win.
He continued, “Being a huge golf fanatic, I cannot wait to play in the pro-am and meet more of the professional golfers of the world.”
Myburgh Senior and his wife might also have the pleasure of watching their son Gert Myburgh who is a professional player on the Sunshine Tour also participate in the tournament. He hopes to qualify to play at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open through a qualification tournament the Sunshine Tour is hosting today at Woodhill Country Club in Pretoria, South Africa.
Myburgh Senior is the second lucky winner to be travelling to Mauritius to watch the tournament. The first competition was won by Elizabeth Hinds from the United Kingdom, who travelled to Mauritius with her husband to watch the inaugural AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.
The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open is the first ever tri-sanctioned golf tournament endorsed by the Sunshine, European and Asian Tours. The tournament which will be held from 12 – 15 May 2016, will be played at the Four Seasons Golf Club Mauritius at Anahita.
Some of the best performing professional golfers from the three tours have been confirmed to participate in the tournament this year. The players include Scott Hend, Jeev Milkah Singh, Thomas Levet, Hennie Otto, and Nicolas Colsaerts.
