#TeeOFF4Tourism – Cape Summer Villas hosting golf challenge in aid of Plettenberg Bay hospitality sector

Cape Summer Villas

South Africa’s tourism sector is currently in a dire situation and Cape Summer Villas has jumped on board to assist the unemployed within the Plettenberg Bay hospitality industry. 

As a boutique collection of properties within the Western Cape, Cape Summer Villas believes that it has to get on board and add its voice to the collective of ever-growing awareness campaigns such as #ServeUsPlease #Tourisminmyblood #JobsSavesLives as a means to place a bit of pressure on the government to re-open the tourism sector. 

Paul Duverge, Group General Manager of Cape Summer Villa Boutique Collection has announced that they are to host a fun golf day – The Cape Summer Villa’s #TeeOff4Tourism challenge on 8 August 2020, at the Goose Valley Country Club in Plettenberg Bay. 

“We’re hoping that this Golf Day initiative of ours will gain momentum and will be picked up by others. We hereby challenge other companies and towns and provinces to start similar initiatives”, he said. 

#TeeOFF4Tourism with Cape Summer Villas

The prime goal of Cape Summer Villas #TeeOff4Tourism Golf Day is to raise funds for the procurement of food parcels for Plettenberg Bay hospitality workers, many of whom are sole breadwinners.

With so much uncertainty surrounding TERS (Temporary Employee Relief Scheme), many families within the sector are without an income – there is little to no work right now due to hospitality businesses being unable to open, while those that are trying to operate, have little to zero income due to restrictions on leisure travel and the prohibition of alcohol sales. 

“We are asking the greater business community to support us by taking part in the day, by sponsoring one of the 18 holes or by sponsoring a prize.

Prizes for the day: 

Grand prize – 5 nights stay within our Cape Summer Villas Boutique collection up to the value of R45 000 making the total prize value for the two winners R90 000.  

There will be plenty prizes up for grabs like hotel vouchers, meal vouchers, golf goodies and lots, lots more.  Prizes up to 20th place will be handed out on the day. Remember to dress up as best dressed team will also win a prize.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
