Upcoming tournaments

Investec South African Women's Open

The 2020 Investec South African Women’s Open will be held at the Westlake Golf Course, in Cape Town, for the third year. With a substantial prize pool of R2 million, the most anticipated event on the Sunshine Ladies tour will take place from 11 – 14 March. Co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour, Investec South African Women’s Open attracts both professional and amateur players. 

In 2019, rookie Diksha Dagar beat the tough competition, which included several champions, to take top honours at the event. Kajal Mistry of the GolfRSA Elite squad took the Jackie Mercer Trophy as the winner in the amateur category.

Investec Order of Merit

In 2020, the Investec Order of Merit will be awarded at the final tournament of the Sunshine Ladies Tour at Westlake Golf Course at the Investec South African Women's Open. The 2019 winner, Nobuhle Dlamini, will defend her title.
 
The 2020 Investec Order of Merit is based on a points system and the top three placed professionals on the final Investec Order of Merit will gain automatic entry into the 2021 Investec South African Women’s Open.
 
The winner of the 2020 Investec Order of Merit, at the conclusion of the Investec South African Women’s Open, will receive a bonus prize of R100,000.  In order to qualify for the Order of Merit bonus prize, players must have competed in at least four (4) events in the 2020 Sunshine Ladies Tour season.

Soweto Golf Club upgrade

Soweto Golf Club upgrade

The upgrade of the Soweto Country Club is complete. This initiative was a partnership with the City of Johannesburg, Investec Property, SAIL Rights Commercialisation, the Gauteng Provincial Government and Bentel Associates International. 

The upgrade has transformed the Soweto Golf Club from a once near impossible course to play on aesthetically, to a beautiful bird haven with rolling greens and water sources around the course. The new clubhouse boasts new locker rooms for ladies and gentlemen, a kitchen and a hall to accommodate 80 people.

"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."
