SuperSport will officially live broadcast the upcoming Sunshine Tour and Sunshine Ladies Tour events, starting in March.
The local calendar is set to get under way next month and golf fans across South Africa will now have the rare opportunity of seeing some of the best talents in action.
SuperSport’s coverage will consist of three hours daily content for a minimum of two rounds per event. Highlights packages will also be made available, which will go on to DStv Catch Up and all SuperSport platforms.

‘We are delighted to announce the growth of this partnership with SuperSport into this next phase, which is going to significantly enhance our product and bring golf fans everything they could ever want in terms of live tournament coverage, highlights and more from the Sunshine Tour and Sunshine Ladies Tour,’ said Thomas Abt, Sunshine Tour commissioner.
‘Although this is an enhanced broadcast partnership, it is a partnership with an already longstanding supporter of South African professional golf and the Sunshine Tour. SuperSport has always been unwavering in its support of the Tour and shares our vision to enhance the entertainment value of our brand and give fans a greater insight into the lives of our professionals and we’re very pleased to be able to work with them towards achieving this goal.’
SuperSport CEO Marc Jury says they are equally excited about the further development of this partnership and the chance to expand their coverage of local professional golf.
‘Golf has always been an important and valued market for SuperSport, and this partnership continues our commitment to South African sport. Through our innovative content offerings, we’ll be able to showcase the incredible talent the Sunshine Tour and Sunshine Ladies Tour produces, and keep telling the story of their ongoing success.’
