Vodacom Origins of Golf Series Returns

The Vodacom Origins of Golf series, the longest running series of tournaments on the Sunshine Tour, will be back on the Tour’s schedule in 2021 and 2022.

That’s after it had to be cancelled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The five-tournament series will tee off in August, with the final tournament set to be played in 2022 and with a total of R5 million in prize money on offer throughout the series.

“We are delighted to welcome back the Vodacom Origins of Golf series to our schedule. Vodacom are one of our oldest partners on the Sunshine Tour and a loyal supporter of South African golf, and we’re extremely grateful for their ongoing support in these challenging times,” said Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour. “The cancellation of last year’s Vodacom Origins of Golf series was beyond anybody’s control, and yet Vodacom still worked with us to host tournaments last year and give our members playing opportunities. But we are truly thrilled to welcome back the full Vodacom Origins of Golf series, which has been an important factor in the development of many of our leading professionals’ careers.”

The series will tee off at De Zalze Golf Estate from 4-6 August. It will then travel to Sishen Golf Club from 26-28 August, followed by Durban Country Club from 16-18 September, and Humewood Golf Club from 1-3 October. The final will be played in 2022 with the date and venue to be announced in due course.
