Walker Park Golf Club hosted a golf day on Saturday 25 August in aid of Martin van Heerden.
Martin crashed into a bridge on Heritage day (September 2017) and was flung several meters from the vehicle.
The emergency services found his friend and only then realised that he was somewhere in the area.
They searched for him and found him a while later. Martin suffered severe injuries and was admitted to hospital where he spent several months recovering. Unfortunately, Martin’s right leg could not be saved and was amputated a few weeks ago.

MJ van Rensburg, Club manager, Walker Park Golf Club, said that they set themselves a target of R75000 for the day but they managed to raise R160000.
The money raised will be used to help pay the costs of a prosthetic leg for Martin.
The wind did not put a damper on the players as they all enjoyed the golf.
