The Sunshine Tour is proud to announce that the SDC Group is a new partner of the Tour with their significant support of South African professional golf.

The SDC Group currently sponsors two tournaments on the Sunshine Tour with a global impact – the SDC Open and the SDC Championship

The SDC Open, which made its debut on the Sunshine Tour in 2022, is co-sanctioned with the European Challenge Tour and plays a vital role in the pathway to greatness for South African professionals seeking to advance their careers internationally.

The SDC Championship, which made its debut in 2023, is co-sanctioned with the DP World Tour and adds significantly to the Sunshine Tour’s strong alliance with one of the major tours of world golf.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome the SDC Group to our family of Sunshine Tour partners. The SDC Group plays a vital role in investing in and upskilling South Africans through the important work it does. Similarly, the Sunshine Tour invests in the future of South African professional golf talent through our philosophy that ‘GreatnessBeginsHere’,” said Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour.

“In a very short space of time the SDC Group has made a tremendous impact on our Tour and offered our members even greater opportunities to advance their careers as we’ve been able to grow our tournament footprint on both the European Challenge Tour and DP World Tour.”

Daniel Gibhard, CEO of the SDC Group, said: “Our relationship with the Sunshine Tour echoes our desire to develop the skills of all South Africans and, in this instance, our country’s future professional golf stars. We know the value that a high level of training combined with opportunity can have.”
