Volvo Car South Africa is the proud vehicle partner of the 2012 Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted at the spectacular Gary Player Golf course at Sun City from 29 November – 2 December.
Nedbank Golf Challenge players and their families are transported in a fleet of gorgeous Volvo XC90s, Volvo XC60s, Volvo S60s and Volvo V60s.
Volvo, Golf and the Nedbank Golf Challenge
The long and proud relationship between Volvo and golf is one of the most enduring and mutually beneficial relationships in the modern history of sport. Golf and Volvo go hand in glove; both have hallmarks of quality, integrity, fair play and care for the environment and the relationship between Volvo and what many consider to be the King of Sports is an enduring, enjoyable and exciting one.
The Nedbank Golf Challenge is a prestigious, premium landmark event in the golfing calendar and Volvo is proud to be associated with this event, this being our 10th year of driving the players in the field.
Three Volvos to be won this year
For the first time in its ten-year partnership of this prestigious event, Volvo Car South Africa is putting three vehicles up for grabs around the course:
• On the 9th (par 5) the first player to make an Albatross will walk away with an all-new Volvo V40 premium five-door hatchback.
• On the 17th (par 4) the first player to make an Eagle wins a sleek Volvo S60 T6 R-Design.
• On the 18th (par 4) the first player to make an Eagle will drive off in a spectacular Volvo XC60.
Volvo models on display at this year's Nedbank Golf Challenge
All-New Volvo V40
There are two spectacular all-new Volvo V40s on display. The Volvo V40 is the recently launched five-door Premium hatchback. With superb styling and numerous world-first features such as Volvo's Pedestrian Airbag, the all-new Volvo V40 is set to take the hatchback segment by storm. The all-new Volvo V40 is designed around you and can be personalised on every level. It's You.
The Volvo C70 is a sleek, Scandinavian coupé / cabriolet. Its elegant styling makes one of the more refined cabriolets on the road and it is the ideal vehicle for those blissful weekends away.
The sleek and seductive Volvo S60 is the most elegant and intelligent sedan on the road. Equipped with City Safety as standard (as are all new Volvo Models), this car will brake for you up to 50km/h if it senses that the driver is distracted and won't be able to brake in time. Ideal for drivers who are imagining the perfect putt rather than concentrating on the traffic.
The Volvo V60 is our beautiful and elegant sportswagon. It's got the looks, the performance and safety features such as City Safety to make it one of the most intelligent vehicles on display. Its sporty looks and spacious boot mean you can load all you dream golfing gear in the back without having to sacrifice and inch on comfort, style and safety.
The Volvo XC60 is a head-turner in the SUV community. Stylish and muscular, this go-anywhere Swede is the perfect car for work or play. Beautiful, premium and equipped with all the latest gadgets and safety features, the Volvo XC60 does not shy away from rugged terrain or the entire family's golf clubs.
