World Golf Cup comes to Harare


On Saturday, the World Cup comes to Harare.
Not football but golf. The British Embassy has organised a Charity Golf Wold Cup that will tee off at Chapmans Golf Course on Saturday morning.
Over 30 teams, including players from Serbia, Japan, Zambia, China, Australia, Scotland, Austria and Zimbabwe. Players come from the political, diplomatic and business community in Zimbabwe. The victorious team will win a replica of the World Cup with a golfing twist.
The golf tourney will be followed by a charity auction where sports memorabilia, holiday vouchers and wine will be auctioned off.
The proceeds will go to support education in rural Zimbabwe.
Mpumelelo Secondary School in Nkayi District is the lucky school set to benefit from the auction proceeds.
Tim Cole, the deputy head of mission at the British Embassy, taught at Mpumelelo from 1990-91 and wanted to do something to help the school now that he was back in Zimbabwe as a diplomat.
“More than half the teams in the competition are Zimbabwean, so Zimbabwe has a real chance of winning the World Cup this year!” said Cole.
