Dates and venues for the 2007 Ladies African Tour (previously known as the Nedbank Women’s Golf Tour) have been finalised, and include four events on the Highveld, and two at the Durban Country Club, in KwaZulu Natal.
Spread over a period of three weeks starting next week, the Ladies African Tour will kick off with the Pam Golding Ladies International on the 21 February at the Dainfern Country Club north of Johannesburg, an event which boasts R250,000 in prize-money.
The 2006 Pam Golding Ladies International was won by Swiss Nora Angehrn, taking the reigns from South African amateur and defending champion Ashleigh Simon.
True to form, Ashleigh placed first among the host country entrants, her six-under 213 a mere three shots behind the winner, and one behind a group of three placing joint-second, including England’s Rebecca Hudson, Germany’s Bettina Hauert and Norway’s Cecile Lundgreen.
Next up is the the WPGA Masters at Pretoria’s Waterkloof Golf Club, followed by the Acer Women’s South Africa Open on the lush fairways and greens of the Durban Country Club.
The following two events are ProAms on the 11 and 13th March, at the Durban Country Club and the Benoni Lakes Club respectively, before the Telkom Women’s Classic at the Benoni Lakes Club on the 16 March.
