The inaugural Tshwane Open teed off at The Els Club on the Copperleaf Golf and Country Estate outside Centurion, with the Executive Mayor of the City of Tshwane, Kgosientso Ramokgopa, hitting the ceremonial first tee shot.

The tournament, co-sanctioned by the European Tour and Sunshine Tour, has drawn a strong field including former European Ryder Cup captain, José María Olazábal; 2011 British Open champion, Darren Clarke and 2005 US Open champion Michael Campbell.

“We are very pleased to be hosting a tournament of this magnitude. We want to project ourselves as a leading capital city on the African continent and we want to use this event to draw people to the city. 

“We have not exploited our tourism potential and we want golf tourists to experience the life and ambience of this city. This tournament is a great platform to propel our city forward,” Ramokgopa said.

Ramokgopa also confirmed the city’s vision to grow the tournament over the next few years.

“The profile of the players we have for the inaugural tournament is great, and we hope to increase this profile. We are confident about the future of this event.”
