The Sunshine Ladies Tour in partnership with the Women’s Professional Golf Association announced a comprehensive financial relief programme for the top 25 South African professionals on the Sunshine Ladies Tour.

As stated in the media release on Thursday, 2 April 2020, the Sunshine Tour will pay a monthly stipend to its member professionals, and on a scale according to their various categories of membership, for the months of April and May 2020.

This is to assist professional golfers to meet their financial obligations at a time where tournaments have been suspended due to the global COVID-19 outbreak.
