Andile Musambasi (1st edition NAMA Golf day winner), Russel Chiradza, Larry Kwirirayi, Chenesai Mangoma, Isaac Wiscot, Chiedza Kurwakumire, Shamiso Quang, Barry Manandi,
Mike Madoda among others,".
The event will also feature some professional golfers including Sam Taylor, Nevy Milazi, Yolanda Mubaiwa, Lazarus Clever, Albert Chinamano and Blessed
