LIMPOPO CHAMPIONSHIP STRENGTHENS PROVINCE’S STATUS AS A GOLF PLAYGROUND

Limpopo; Polokwane: The Limpopo Province’s growing status as a premium golf destination will once again be showcased by the Limpopo Tourism Agency and the Sunshine Tour when the sixth edition of the Limpopo Championship tees off in April 2024.

The Limpopo Championship at the Euphoria Golf and Lifestyle Estate is one of three major golf tournaments that the province will host on the Sunshine Tour in 2024, including the SDC Open and the Vodacom Origins of Golf.

Added to this, are strong regional golf tournaments such as Kudu, Big 5, the Limpopo Youth Championship and a strong amateur calendar add significantly to the province’s golf offering.

The province also welcomes a new tournament this year in the Limpopo Ladies PGA Pro-Am Championship to be played in August at Koro Creek Golf Bushveld Estate.

The Limpopo Championship remains the crown jewel in the province’s golf offering and will be played from 4-7 April with a field expected to include defending champion Ryan van Velzen, who will seek to emulate JC Ritchie’s back-to-back wins in 2019 and 2020. Another strong field of Sunshine Tour professionals is expected to gather in the bushveld to challenge for the R2 000 000 prize fund.

Sports tourism is central to the Limpopo Tourism Agency’s growth strategy and golf continues to deliver impressive results for the province. Golf destination marketing has directly contributed towards an increase in visitors, economic investment, job creation, and golf development.

This year’s Limpopo Championship will showcase this and more in a week-long lifestyle and golf programme that includes live entertainment, an after party, a business exhibition, a pro-am golf day, and hospitality area where fans and their families can experience the best of the Limpopo culture.

“Limpopo Tourism Agency is proud of its partnership with the Sunshine Tour, staging top professional international tournament, the 6th Limpopo Championship. The Waterberg District is now a sort after golfing destination for South Africa and thus continues to excite international golf enthusiasts, leisure and business travelers. The district, which is a permanent home of this prestigious tournament and has a myriad of tourist destinations like the Nylsvley Nature Reserve, a RAMSAR Site with over 400 bird species; the Waterberg Biosphere; Makapans Valley World Heritage Site; Welgevonden Private Game Reserve with its approximately 66 lodges, Waterberg Meander; Marakele National Park and many private game reserves.
