Elevating women's golf
"I think it is important not to be aggressive in our approach to breaking the glass ceiling. In the last five years, there has been a massive improvement in the support of women's golf."

Soweto Golf Club upgrade
The upgrade of Soweto Country Club is being done in partnership with the City of Johannesburg, Investec Property, SAIL Rights Commercialisation, the Gauteng Provincial Government and Bentel Associates International.
The upgrade is a key step in the Sunshine Tour’s development initiative. It remains an important facility for a community that has a long history of producing top golfers from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.
