Introducing the Sunshine Tour LIMPOPO CHAMPIONSHIP

February 11, 2019

Sunshine Tour is excited and pleased to launch the new R1.5-million Limpopo Championship tee off at the Euphoria Golf and Lifestyle Estate from 7-10 March 2019. This latest Sunshine Tour tournament is powered by the Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA) and will feature a field of 156 professionals competing in a 72-hole stroke play format. The addition of Limpopo Championship is much welcome by all in the golf fraternity.

 

"We are delighted to announce the new Limpopo Championship, which is one of several new tournaments we will be announcing and which gives us a really strong local base for our professionals to start their year off at home," said Selwyn Nathan, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour.

 

Limpopo Championship is poised to attract a strong field vying to qualify for the season ending Tour Championship. The organisers will make a concerted effort to attract more players from the SADC region and even further into the continent to make this a truly African Spectacle.  

 

"Limpopo is a leading tourism destination but also well known for a golf and game experience in Southern Africa. The addition of the Limpopo Championship to our already diverse destination portfolio is a natural fit. The tournament compliments our brand offering and promotion of diverse tourism experiences in collaboration with the private sector in order to drive for sector transformation. The region has a myriad of tourist destinations like the Nylsvley Nature Reserve, a RAMSAR Site with over 400 bird species, Waterberg Biosphere, Makapans Valley, Waterberg Meander, Marakele National Park and many private  game reserves, to name but a few," said Nomasonto Ndlovu, Chief Executive Officer of LTA.

 

The four-day golf extravaganza offers golfers and non-golfers an opportunity to sample the numerous tourist offerings of the region, venue and surrounding communities. Participants and spectators can enjoy tailor-made tournament packages that include entertainment, spa treatments, cable car rides, excursions and local food sampling.

 


"As the event organisers, Endaweni Media is very excited to form part of the Sunshine Tour golf offering in the Limpopo province. The golf tournament will become an annual spectacle that partners with local communities and government in order to stimulate economic growth and all inclusive participation," said Jimmy Headbush, Managing Director of Endaweni Media.
