The much-anticipated Sunshine Ladies Tour tees off in February 2022 and this year it boasts not only a massive prize money hike, but also a few new sponsors – including RE/MAX of Southern Africa.

“The Sunshine Ladies Tour is healthy, strong and growing thanks to the continued commitment of our stakeholders, including Investec, the municipalities of Joburg and Cape Town, Jabra, SuperSport, Dimension Data, Sun International, and our new sponsors SunBet and RE/MAX of Southern Africa. Our partners have stepped up their investment in women’s professional golf immensely to ensure that our players can continue to level up and chase their Sunshine Ladies Tour dreams in 2022. We are proud to unveil a schedule packed with great incentives and nearly R13-million to play for,” says Sunshine Ladies Tour General Manager Pauli van Meersbergen.”

The Sunshine Ladies Tour and Ladies European Tour will once again co-sanction the Investec South African Women’s Open. The 72-hole showpiece will be played at the picturesque Steenberg Golf Club, and the field will be competing for an increased purse of €290 000 (approximately R5.2-million), thanks to the support of the City of Cape Town and a new Sunshine Ladies Tour partnership with RE/MAX of Southern Africa.

Regional Director and CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, Adrian Goslett, explains that the tour presented an opportunity not only to support women’s professional golf and all aspiring pros, but also to play a part of an event that can provide a much-needed boost in the tourism and hospitality industries following months of lockdown and travel restrictions. “We are excited to play a part in this event and are looking forward to a successful few days out on the greens.”

“Our sincere thanks to the Cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town, Investec and RE/MAX of Southern Africa for their incredible commitment. This will undoubtedly impact positively on participation and interest in the women’s game in Africa,” van Meersbergen concludes.
