SA Senior Open to be held in Plett for 2nd year
In just its second year, The SA Senior Open has established itself as the premier event on the new Sunshine Senior Tour. As the only annual Senior professional golf event along the beautiful Garden Route stretch, the SA Senior Open offers a unique opportunity for corporates and individuals to experience tournament golf.
Date: 02 – 05 October 2018
Venue: Plettenberg Bay Golf Course
The event will also for the first time, incorporate a special pre event feature on Sunday 30th September, whereby the Annual Mayoral Golf Day will take place, celebrating the alliance between the Senior Tour and Bitou Municipality. Proceeds of this event will go towards the creation of a Golfing Academy, targeting talented youngsters from the surrounding communities.
The SA Senior Open, held from the 2nd to the 5th of October 2018, sees the event return to Plettenberg Bay Golf Course, which is set on a private nature reserve and considered a ‘must play’ course on the Garden Route.
This event brings together Africa’s best Senior Professionals over the age of 50 to compete alongside international Senior Professionals. An exceptional roll call of former Champions including the likes of John Bland and Hugh Baiocchi, will all have the aim of dethroning 2017 Senior Open Champion Mark McNulty.
In support of the EWT, proceeds will be donated to support the endangered Humpback Dolphin.
