Located in an idyllic setting with a breath-taking view of Table Mountain, Parow Golf Club welcomed enthusiastic amateur golfers from all over the Western Cape to compete in the first Premier Amateur Tour of 2023. This year’s Parow Open featured 64 players competing in harsh, windy, and warm conditions.

Players were treated to some well-deserved cold beverages following a grueling battle in challenging conditions.

We would like to acknowledge Parow Golf Club for their contribution to the success of the tournament. Additionally, we would like to thank Coca-Cola Peninsula Beverages for providing water and Powerade to keep the players hydrated, and Subtropico for providing bananas.
