Cape Town, 23 March 2023: We’re just days away from a bumper week on the SA Blind Golf Association calendar with the SA Blind Open and IBGA World Championship set to take place at Milnerton Golf Club in the final week of March.
The world’s best will descend upon the notoriously tricky links course for what promises to be an exciting week: After a practice round on the 26th of March, the competitors will play 36 holes of medal to determine the SA Blind Open champion.
After a rest and practice day, golfers from 14 different countries will contest the IBGA World Championship to be played on the 30th and 31st of March. A total of 48 players will tee it up in the World Championship and, like the SA Blind Open, play 36 holes of medal.
SA Blind Open and IBGA World Championship Tournament Director Jurie Mare highlighted the historic nature of the 2023 IBGA World Championship and underlined the test that Milnerton Golf Club will provide.
“For everyone at the SA Blind Golf Association, it is a great honour to stage the IBGA World Championship at Milnerton Golf Club as South Africa will become the first African nation to host this prestigious tournament,” Mare remarked.
“We are thrilled to welcome such a cosmopolitan field to our shores and have no doubt that Milnerton Golf Club will be a stern test for the assembled competitors, particularly if the wind blows.
“It is a feather in the cap of the SABGA that South Africa is hosting what’s sure to be a wonderful week of golf and we can’t wait for it to get underway.”
