26 March 2023 – A bumper week awaits South Africa’s top blind golfers with the SA Blind Open and IBGA World Championship set to take place at Milnerton Golf Club this week.
The world’s best will descend upon the notoriously tricky links course for what promises to be an exciting week.

The 2023 South African Blind Open Championship kicks off the action with a 36-hole Medal tournament from 27 March and after a rest day, top ranked golfers from 14 different countries will contest the International Blind Golf Association World Championship from 30-31 Match.

A total of 48 players will tee it up in this prestigious event, which will also be a 36-hole medal competition.

SA Blind Open and IBGA World Championship Tournament Director Jurie Mare highlighted the historic nature of the 2023 IBGA World Championship and underlined the test that Milnerton Golf Club will provide.

“For everyone at GolfRSA, the South African Disabled Association (SADGA) and the SA Blind Golf Association (SABGA), it is a great honour and privilege to stage the IBGA World Championship at Milnerton Golf Club as South Africa becomes the first African nation to host this prestigious tournament,” Mare remarked.

“We are absolutely delighted to welcome such a cosmopolitan field to our shores and I have no doubt that Milnerton Golf Club will be a stern test for the assembled competitors, particularly if the wind gets up.

“It is a feather in the cap for SADGA and SABGA to host this event, and what promises to be a festival of golf in Cape Town, and we are really excited to get underway.”
Entry to the event is free, there is ample parking and the clubhouse facilities are open for spectators.
