Upcoming tournaments

As one of South Africa’s most prestigious professional women’s golf tournaments, 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 Soweto Golf Course at the Joburg Ladies Open. The 2019 winner, Nobuhle Dlamini, will defend her title.

Other Investec golf initiatives

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. 

The refurbished Soweto Golf Club will officially open on 30 August 2019 on the Mayoral Golf Day. The course, designed by Gary Player, has already played host to the final Sunshine Ladies Tour tournament and the Ladies Joburg Open, where the Investec Order of Merit was announced.
