  • Spectacular Eagle by Retief Goosen wins the Volvo S80 at the 2010 Nedbank Golf Challenge

    2009/12/03
    Retief Goosen today walked away with a brand new Volvo S80 after scoring a superb eagle on the 17th hole at the 2010 Nedbank Golf Challenge.

     

    The 17th on the Gary Player Golf course at Sun City is notoriously tricky and Goosen's eagle was only the second ever in the history of this prestigious tournament. Retief played boldly by hitting his driver off the 17th, in order to leave himself with a short shot in, and then hit his wedge-shot to perfection to spin the ball back into the hole.

     

    The S80 is Volvo's flagship of elegant design and relaxing interior comfort, offering a rewarding driving experience. This while providing top-class fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. And you can fit at least 5 sets of golf clubs in the boot. A premium sedan that satisfies customers with high demands.

     

    The S80 D5 that was won in such spectacular fashion is on display at the Avis 17th hole on the Gary Player golf course on a raft in the water – beautiful in white with dramatic red waves to show off brightly against the water.

     

    The Volvo S80 a hard to beat offer

    "I would like to give those who know about the Volvo S80 but who have never driven one, a sound piece of advice. Take a closer look at this car and take it out for a thorough test drive. You'll be amazed at what we have achieved." Says Bram van der Reep, managing director of Volvo Car South Africa.

     

    Volvo Car South Africa is delighted that the car has been won – it is after all why we have it on offer as a prize – but best of all is for it to be won by a South African. Retief Goosen is one of South Africa's most popular golfers.
