Waterfall City Tournament of Champions powered by Attacq

ADVERTORIAL– WATERFALL City and Attacq are sponsoring a new Sunshine Tour tournament.

The 2024/25 season is kicking off with the inaugural Waterfall City Tournament of Champions powered by Attacq.

This event will feature a field of champions from throughout South African golf, all chasing a first prize of R1 million.

The tournament, to be played at the Royal Johannesburg Golf Club’s East Championship Course from 2 – 5 May 2024, will include an impressive line-up of golfing champs comprised largely of winners of Sunshine Tour events during the 2023/24 season.

Men and women will compete in this mixed tournament for the big prize, one of the largest on the Sunshine Tour.

The South African Disabled Golf Association (SADGA) will also be competing in their own tournament ahead of the field where six of South Africa’s leading golfers with disabilities have been given a unique opportunity to compete.

SADGA Non-Executive Director Pieter Verwey praised the Sunshine Tour’s vision and tournament sponsors Waterfall City and Attacq for creating an opportunity to showcase the considerable talent within the ranks of golf for the disabled.

The Waterfall City Tournament of Champions powered by Attacq and supported by The Courier Guy, is a unique four-day golf tournament. Not only is it nicknamed ‘the winner’s tournament’ so fans and visitors can watch all their favourite players, but it showcases a different format of 9 holes.

Players will play the 9-hole course twice daily, ensuring participants and spectators can enjoy all the action over a smaller area. This means no more trekking from hole to hole. This new format guarantees you will always be part of the action wherever you are.

Thanks to the tournament’s smaller radius, it ensures comprehensive TV coverage, with all holes covered simultaneously.

You can watch live coverage on SuperSport Channel 213 Golf, if you cannot be there in person.

The tournament will be played with a drastically reduced field.

Between 30 and 50 players have been invited, compared to the usual 120 players.

Waterfall City and Attacq are excited to be the primary sponsors of this inaugural golf tournament.
