Rob Dalton of Sun International has made no secret of his interest and passion for the PinkStig. He uses every opportunity to inform, educate and popularize UniMedia Pro’s PinkStig Initiative.
In June 2015, UniMedia Pro begun with the writing of Sally Little’s book “Capturing the Fire”, Rob did not hesitate to invite Sally Little as his honourary guest to several of his Sun International events. UniMedia Pro and Sun International quickly settled into a partnership that complimented each other. No surprise when UniMedia Pro confirmed their PinkStig Initiative, Rob requested that the event takes place at the Lost City Golf Course at Sun City.
The PinkStig Pro Am Invitational, which takes place on the 28th November 2016 is aimed at creating a collaborative atmosphere and partnership between the caretakers of the sport in South Africa and those who simply want to see more opportunities created for SA’s women professional golfers.
“The challenge, however, is how do we create a sustainable model that will attract more international players to South Africa, lengthen the season for women’s professional golf and grow the number of regular tours at home. We need to ensure more South African ladies are afforded a greater chance to gain experience in playing at the highest level and achieving international acclaim, equally to give our aspiring young amateur lady golfers every reason to turn professional before they turn to other professions. says Mehta.
These sentiments are shared by Rob Dalton as he is able to recall so many requests for financial assistance by fathers who want to see their daughters get a fair chance to compete locally and abroad. “The sport has been good to us in a country in which one can play golf 350 days in a year and in the most spectacular surroundings. Why not create an appetite for more women professional golf in South Africa and let more players from abroad spend more time is this beautiful country of ours” say Rob Dalton.
This is going to happen….Rob’s mantra
