Pro Golf Events to South Africa for three years

Date: Feb 17, 2020

After a successful tryout in March 2019, the Groningen-based golf events agency has entered into a three-year partnership with Global Junior Golf and Golf RSA (the South African Golf Association). The tournament is supported by main sponsor Nomads Foundation.

The Nomads South African Juniors International, as the tournament is called in South Africa, is part of Global Junior Golf's international tour calendar, which allows talented golfers up to age 21 to earn world ranking points (WAGR). In 2020, the tournament will be played March 2 - 5 at Rondebosch Golf Club in Cape Town. Pro Golf Events has been busy preparing for the 2020 edition since the 'try-out' in 2019.

'This edition of the Nomads South African Juniors International currently has the strongest field of participants in the Global Junior Golf 2020 calendar,' says van der Schans, owner of the company. 'Of all participants no less than 90% have a so-called plus handicap. It promises to be another wonderful adventure at Rondebosch Golf Club in Cape Town.'

Among other things, Pro Golf Events has been organizing the Northern Golf Tour for six years, known among all golfers in (Northern) Holland. In 2016, the organization first came into contact with the German party Global Junior Golf. Van der Schans: "We offered to organize a tournament in the Netherlands that would be part of their tour. There was immediately a good click and thus a basis for the future.' With the organization of the international youth golf tournament the Tulip Golf Challenge at the Drentsche Golf & Country Club in Assen, Pro Golf Events shows the Germans what they have to offer. After a very successful first edition, expansion to Belgium will follow in 2017. Then they may host a prestigious tournament in Portugal and set up the Holbox Junior Open, which takes place at Golf Course de Herkenbosche in Roermond.
