Now the leading financial institution is inviting fans to enjoy all that the virtual world has to offer with the inaugural Nedbank Golf Challenge set to take place in Ubuntuland.
While the physical edition of the world-renowned sports event will be taking place at Sun City from 10 -13 November 2022, the virtual edition will also tee off in the Nedbank Metaverse in Ubuntuland on Thursday 10 November and extend for a full week with entertainment planned from 9 AM - 8 PM (CAT) daily. Fans visiting the space can perfect their swing with lessons from the resident golf pro, enjoy a golf themed treasure hunt, take part in live quizzes or simply kick back and enjoy a drink in the sports bar, while enjoying live entertainment by local artists.
The Nedbank Golf Challenge and the behind-the-scenes thereof, will be live streamed in the space, so golf enthusiasts won’t miss a single putt. Additionally, a documentary chronicling the past 40 years of the popular challenge will be screened in the space. It’s all golfing enthusiasts enjoy and more, and this way, they get to play too!
