The 22nd annual World Golfers Championships was held in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Sport has an unrivalled ability to collapse national, racial, ethnic, religious and many other differences to build a unified human spirit for all the people of the world. Golf in particular has forged great bonds in the business community, which ultimately broadens global trade, creates jobs and reduces poverty worldwide.

A big thank you once again to Tourism Kwazulu-Natal, Trade & Investment and the Department of Economic Development and Tourism, under the visionary leadership of MEC Michael Mabuyakhulu MPP, for their unwavering support.

Southern Sun Elangeni Hotel
We are also extremely grateful to Tsogo Sun for coming on board once again as host accommodation partner.

The two host Tsogo Sun hotels offered the perfect location for golfers. Perfectly positioned in the heart of Durban’s Golden Mile, guests stared out of their room windows at the 180º horizon of the pristine blue Indian Ocean, with the waterfront a mere 200m from their hotel doorstep. The quality of food, accommodation and service provided by Tsogo Sun has been outstanding and is a major contributor to the success of The World Golfers Championship.

In keeping with previous events, 2016was yet another fantastic tournament. The weather – the only aspect beyond the control of the event organisers – was not always kind to the championship. However, despite some rain, some mist, golfers still carded some really great scores, with many teams playing consistently well over the four days.
