The Dimension Data Pro-Am is one of the principal annual golf tournaments on the Southern African Sunshine Tour. It began on the Gary Player and Lost City golf courses at Sun City, South Africa. In 2010, the tournament moved to the Fancourt Golf Estate in George in the Southern Cape. The tournament is now played on the Montagu, Outeniqua as well as The Links golf courses for the first three rounds, with the final round played on the Montagu golf course.
The tournament was founded in 1996, and was co-sanctioned by the European Tour for the first two years, with enhanced prize money and fields as a result. Those first two events were won by former World Number 1 Nick Price and top South African player Mark McNulty.
Two competitions will run concurrently: A Professional Competition and a Pro-Am Better Ball Competition.
Golfers will play in teams of two, one professional and one amateur, experiencing three of the finest 18-hole golf courses in the country, the Montagu Golf Course, the Outeniqua Golf Course and Fancourt’s world famous The Links Golf Course.
Dimension Data is proud to be hosting the third Sunshine Ladies Tour Dimension Data Challenge.
2016 brings an exciting change to the format of the Ladies Pro-Am. The tournament will now be played over three days on three different golf courses.
Amateurs are teamed with a professional lady golfer and together they compete for the Sunshine Ladies Tour Dimension Data Challenge Pro-Am trophy. They compete using the Better Ball Medal scoring system whereby the lowest stroke, by either the professional or the amateur, is recorded for each hole. The amateur handicaps are taken into account.
Day 1: Friday 19 February to be played at the George Golf Course.
Day 2: Saturday 20 February to be played at the Kingswood Golf course.
On Sunday, 21 February, the top 10 better ball teams will go through to play on the Outeniqua Golf Course at Fancourt along with the professional golfers, whose scores will carry over for the final round of the Ladies Professional tournament.
