Corona Virus Update
In light of the announcement by the President and having taken the advice of the various government ministers and the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the issues surrounding COVID-19, the Big Easy IGT Tour will be suspending all of its activities as of 16 March 2020.
In consultation with the Sunshine Tour we will review our position on 20 April or as the situation demands. This decision was taken by the Sunshine Tour Board of Directors and Players Committee, and stands in unity with the International Federation of PGA Tours and world golf’s decision to suspend its activities.
Our aim is to safeguard our members, and support the President’s call for all South Africans to present a united front in taking the prescribed action to prevent the further spread of this virus.
Regular communication from the Tour will still be sent to all of our members via our website, email, WhatsApp and social media, keeping them updated on what is an incredibly fluid and dynamic situation. As part of our “Return to Golf” plan, the Tour has already held discussions with all of our partners, sponsors and host venues on the proposed way forward and to ensure everything is in place to resume our activities as soon as the South African government provides this go-ahead.
Our immediate priority is, to be responsible and do everything to contribute to stopping the spread of COVID-19 so that our society may return to normal as soon as possible. We thank our sponsors and partners for their support and understanding during such a unique moment in South African golf, and we also ask for the patience of all at this time.
