Alana van Greuning comes with nothing short of pure will and desire to be a champion, an inspiration to other women and a true ambassador of the notion ‘let champions lead champions’. UniMedia Pro is proud to be instrumental in creating this platform for dialogue.
Alana only started playing golf at the age of 21 but it soon became apparent that she was going to be brilliant at it. Not surprisingly seen as this multi skilled lady also received provincial colours for athletics, cross country, netball & tennis.
Alana turned pro at the end of 2012 after a successful amateur career where she represented South Africa at the World Amateur Championships and the All Africa Challenge. Her dream is to play on the Ladies European Tour. She is a member of the WPGA of South Africa and is currently playing in the Sunshine Ladies Tour & IGT Pro tour.
Alana has already gone on to achieve quite a bit on the Ladies Sunshine Tour.
