Golf sponsorships

 

Investec Property has a history of supporting golf in South Africa. This includes the sponsorship of various tournaments and events, golf development and women’s golf.

Elevating women's golf

The Investec South African Women’s Open ranks among the world’s top national opens. 
 
Added to the tournament sponsorship is the Investec Property Fund Order of Merit, where players compete for an additional prize and an invitation to compete in the Ladies European Tour, as well as final stage exemption into the 2019 Qualifying School.

"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."
