The dates for NGF 2019 is Wednesday 03 to Sunday 07 July during the winter school holidays.

On the first day of the festival, Wednesday 03 July, we will be creating a mini golf village at the Wilderness Hotel, introducing quite a few new additions. Why? Because it is about creating a better experience for our players and sponsors. It also helps to grow the Garden Route golf industry and local economy. It will include the following…


The registration that always took place at The Pro Shop will now take place at the Wilderness Hotel with many other activities. We will ensure that you can still do all your golf shopping here from the stands at the expo.


The new expo will include a variety of expo stands where you can get the latest industry advise but also purchase you golf goods for the week.


A variety of conferences will be presented, from the business of golf in the Garden Route to a variety of topics to help players improve their game.


The large village green in front of the hotel will be transformed for chipping competitions and product demonstrations.


The day’s activities will flow into the official welcome cocktail function with some great food and entertainment.
