ACOC golf day 2021

On 28th October Chapman Freeborn South Africa held its annual golf day at Benoni Country Club, in Benoni. The event, which aims to be an enjoyable opportunity for people to come together and network, was organised by Air Cargo Operators Committee (ACOC). The event saw 140 customers and partners take part to create 35 four-ball teams. Chapman Freeborn entered 3 four-ball teams, with team 1 finishing in 5th place, team 2 in 6th place and team 3 in 11th place.

The Chapman Freeborn hole involved an outsized Airbus A320 engine cowlings as well as business class seats. Navigating such large items around the golf course and to the Chapman Freeborn hole was quite the challenge, however, it was worth the effort because Chapman Freeborn won the best activity hole at the event, with 18 votes out of 35.

As well as being a great networking opportunity, the event helped raise money for the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). In total R40,000 was raised on the day, including R8,200 by Chapman Freeborn through selling raffle tickets. The Chapman Freeborn raffle prize was a Weber Braai worth R10,000 and was won by Morne Erskine. Congratulations, Morne!

Chapman Freeborn would like to thank its partner, Global Airways, for sponsoring the Engine cowlings and business class seats. Thank you to ACOC committee for organising the event and Benoni Country Club for hosting what was a fantastic day for all involved.
