They’re often pityingly referred to as grass widows, the wives and girlfriends (WAGS) of men who play golf. The term very aptly applies to women whose husbands are away for long periods of time; in this case, on the golf course.
During the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge held at Sun City, Sun International hosted #StyleAffair which serves as a great treat to invited guests, celebrities and players’ wives.
Ladies like Nicole Willett (wife of professional golfer Danny Willett), Vivienne Player (wife of golfing legend Gary player) and Ntandoyenkosi Kunene (Miss South Africa finalist 2016) made the most of the pamper party held in their honour. (Pictured above by Lettie Ferreira.)
For the three days that the men take to the greens for the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Sun City (December 3-6), the WAGS will have no reason for resentment.
On Wednesday they were treated to a day of extreme pampering in a women-only programme that has come to be known a #StyleAffair.
The partners of golfers, their friends, members of the media, invited celebrities and golfing sponsors will be transported into a world of luxury at Sun City.
Treatments, pampering sessions and lifestyle elements to choose from included stylish bags plus:
• Hand, shoulder and foot massages (Gatsby Spa)
• A skin bar for facials and cleansing treatments (Dermalogica)
• Aesthetic, non-invasive skin rejuvenation (Sprout Aesthetics)
• Make-up: make-overs, how-to lessons, and new products (Becca Cosmetics
• Hair styling (Bijan)
• Fashion styling by Dom Wolf (The Style Coach)
• Manicures and Pedicures with the hottest summer Colours (Morgan Taylor)
“The women also enjoyed the finest cuisine by The Palace’s top Chef’s and sipped on vibrant cocktails,” said Sun International PR Manager, Claudia Henkel.
“It’s wonderful to be able to entertain the women during this golf week, and showcase the wonderful entertainment possibilities at Sun City.”
Sun International COO Rob Collins said: “Women need to feel as though they are an integral part of the golfing week, not just silent observers. They are a very special part of this Nedbank tournament and we want them to be happy.”
