Season of Opportunity Promised by Sunshine Ladies Tour

South African golf will have one of its most inclusive seasons in history with the 2024 Sunshine Ladies Tour set to feature a strong schedule of its own.

The upcoming Sunshine Ladies Tour season will consist of nine tournaments running from February to April 2024. Two of these tournaments will be co-sanctioned with the Ladies European Tour and will have live coverage on SuperSport.

In addition to the regular tournament schedule, the winners of each of these events as well as the overall Order of Merit champion will earn a special invitation to compete alongside men in the Sunshine Tour’s new Waterfall City Tournament of Champions, at the Royal Johannesburg Golf Club’s East Championship Course from 2-5 May, 2024, with a first prize of R1 million up for grabs.

It’s another significant step in the ongoing drive to promote equal opportunity within South African professional golf and builds on the on the Sunshine Tour’s 2023 Vodacom Origins of Golf Series, with the leading Sunshine Ladies Tour professionals competing in the same tournament as the Sunshine Tour professionals, for the same prize money. 

“The strength of South African professional golf lies in our collective strength to create a product that showcases our diversity as a country capable of producing champions in the men’s and women’s game,” said Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour and speaking on behalf of the Sunshine Ladies Tour. 

“We are privileged to have sponsors and partners who share this vision with us and which allows us to not only put together a strong independent Sunshine Ladies Tour schedule, but also to incorporate the strength of both our tours into a unified product that offers greater value to the professionals, the fans and to our sponsors.” 

The 2024 Sunshine Ladies Tour will be anchored by two co-sanctioned tournaments with the Ladies European Tour – the Joburg Ladies Open at Modderfontein Golf Club, from 18 – 21 April, and the season-ending Investec South African Women’s Open at Erinvale Golf Estate, from 25 – 28 April. 

The schedule will tee off with the Dimension Data Ladies Pro-Am at Fancourt from 16-18 February, and will also include the SuperSport Ladies Challenge presented by Sun International, at the Lost City Golf Course from 21 –  23 February; the Sunshine Ladies Tour Invitational from 6 – 8 March (venue to be confirmed); the Cape Town Ladies Open at Royal Cape Golf Club, from 13 – 15 March; and the Jabra Ladies Classic, at Glendower Golf Club from 10 – 12 April. 

There are also two new events on the schedule in March and April which will be announced at a later date.
