MyGolfLife, the digital golf rewards platform of MoreCorp, will be the title sponsor of the new MyGolfLife Open hosted by Pecanwood and which will make its debut on the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour at the Pecanwood Golf & Country Club from 10-13 March 2022.
MyGolfLife is South Africa’s leading digital golf rewards platform which connects people around their shared passion for golf, and rewards this community with exclusive offers from Africa’s largest golf retailer, The Pro Shop.
MyGolfLife’s comprehensive offering for the golf community includes access to lastminutegolf and GolfTeeTimes and over 200 000 available tee times at more than 100 golf courses throughout South Africa every month at subsidised rates, online scoring through the ScoreCapture app, game improvement with the Gary Player Golf Experience, and access to any of the three world-class golf leisure parks of the World of Golf in Midrand, the Golf Village in Centurion and the Golf Village at Gilloolys at subsidised rates.
“We’re extremely proud to announce MyGolfLife’s sponsorship of the MyGolfLife Open hosted by Pecanwood and to be able to extend our support and passion for golf to both the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour,” Darryl Egdes, CEO of MoreCorp.
“MyGolfLife is all about rewarding golfers for their passion for the game and enabling them to live that passion even more by connecting every single element of their golf lives.”
“Now we can add a truly international golf tournament on the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour that showcases the best professional talent on both tours, and which further emphasises what we believe is an unrivalled celebration of what the golf life is all about.”
The MyGolfLife Open hosted by Pecanwood significantly enhances South African golf’s global footprint and brings international golf back to a venue that opened in 1996 as the country’s first Jack Nicklaus signature golf course.
“Pecanwood Estate was born out of the vision of a community’s passion for the game of golf and their desire to combine this with an unrivalled lifestyle that set the benchmark for golf estates in South Africa,” said Morné Botha, General Manager of the Pecanwood Estate Homeowners’ Association (HOA).
“MyGolfLife has a similar philosophy of a community of golfers living out their passion for the game and being rewarded in the process. Our shared vision and the support of the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour will make for a memorable tournament for every golf fan.”
Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour, said: “MoreCorp and The Pro Shop have long been valuable and loyal partners to the Sunshine Tour, and we’re delighted to grow this partnership through the new MyGolfLife Open hosted by Pecanwood.”
“Their passion for the game and their passion for the golf community is without question, and this will be another opportunity for us to showcase the entire golf community to an international audience.”
