The year definitely had an exciting beginning for golf with the return of the SA Women’s Major, which has partnered with The City Of Cape Town and World Sports Promotions. This progressive partnership has seen the SA Women’s Major become the richest event on the Sunshine Ladies tour in the Cape province, with a purse of R500 000.
The end-goal is to recreate the elaborate success the Women’s Major enjoyed between 1996-2008, while fulfilling The City Of Cape Town’s mandate to support sporting programs that will hone the talents of up-and-coming athletes and keep children out of trouble by bringing them closer to their sporting heroes through such sports development programs.
Executive Mayor of Cape Town, Patricia de Lille, enthusiastically highlights further ambitions for this collaboration, saying: “the SA Women’s Masters will not only set a new beacon of excitement on the annual calendar as the most lucrative women’s golf tournament in the Cape Province, but together with the Cape Town Ladies Open, it will empower female golfers across all age groups, all the while showcasing Cape Town as a golfing destination of choice to our global audience.”
The City of Cape Town has been proud sponsors to other incredible golf initiatives, like the South African Disabled Golf Association, and Sally Little’s book launch, presented by UniMedia Pro in partnership with Sun International — to name just a few. This year, they celebrate the beauty of Cape Town, together with the lucrative SA Women’s Masters, at the Rondebosch Golf Club. The event forms part of the Sunshine Ladies Tour and Chase to Investec.
Saturday morning on day three of the SA Women’s Masters, UniMedia will have several PinkStig Cubs out following the PinkStig Dream Team, which consist of Kiran Matharu of England, Carrie Park of South Korea now residing in Pretoria, Michelle Leigh, Ivanna Samu the rookie pro on the 2017 Sunshine Ladies Tour and Tijana Kraljevic.
The cubs will get the opportunity to gain insight into the talent, skill level and mind set required to be a professional.
