Investec's longstanding history in golf
Investec’s golf involvement began in 2008, with a 12-year title sponsorship of the Investec Royal Swazi Open.
Expansion into the Chase to the Investec Cup followed and the current prized 8-year partnership and title sponsorship of the Investec South African Women’s Open, until 2025. Investec also sponsors the Investec Order of Merit and the Investec Homegrown Award
For many years Investec has also backed multiple golf professionals. Most recently they welcomed Zethu Myeki to the strong female contingent of athletes, including Nicole Garcia, Stacy Bregman, Lejan Lewthwaite and Northern Irish pro Stephanie Meadow.
Investec Chief Marketing Officer Abey Mokgwatsane says he's excited at the opportunities the new sponsorship presents, “This is a prestigious tournament, unmatched in South Africa’s golf history, with the best of the best competing for honours."
The possibilities that this tournament provides golfers to achieve their full potential, at the top tier of their profession, is unrivalled.
