Bytes Document Solutions (BDS), the authorised Xerox distributor, recently held its first Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge at the Country Club Johannesburg in Woodmead. The Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge began in the UAE in 1997 and was supported by the UAE Golf Association. The Xerox Corporate Golf Challenge is celebrating 15 years of success with a series of events across the EMEA region, including countries such as the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, and South Africa.
The event has grown into one of the most prestigious sporting events on the golfing calendar, with the objective of providing companies with a platform for mixing business with pleasure. ‘The day was a huge success,’ said Johan Basson, CEO of BDS. ‘The interest in the event was overwhelming and well supported by our partners and sales people. We will definitely repeat this exclusive event in 2014.’ More than 80 customers in Johannesburg competed for a place in the grand finals, which will be held in Abu Dhabi on 23 October 2013.
The grand prize for this year’s winners will be a place in the Pro-Am of the 2013 DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. Winners of the South Africa Golf tournament were: • 1st prize: Will Smith from Ireland Davenport and James Johnson from Digital Fusion • 2nd prize: Andrew During from Prodoc and Andre Bam from House of Print • 3rd prize: Kamal Singh and Harry Christoffi from Shereno Printers
