ABOUT THE ZAMBEZI TOUR
ABOUT THE ZAMBEZI TOUR
The Zambezi Tour has been set up to run all professional golf tournaments in Zimbabwe and is run by an
Independent Management Board with a vision of expanding into the region. The tour takes over from the
Zimbabwe Professional Golf Association who have assumed a ‘professional golfer’ developmental role while all its
members become members of the Tour. The Tour and the ZPGA are registered with the Zimbabwe Sports
Commission.
The origins of the tour are centered on the need to create opportunities for professional golfers currently not
playing on the Sunshine Tour to participate in regular tournaments and thus gain experience and improve their
chances for competently participating on the Sunshine Tour and beyond. All ZPGA members form the nucleus of
the Zambezi Tour.
While the Zambezi Tour will be launched in Zimbabwe it is hoped that it will draw participation from the Region
with players from Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland and Lesotho over the next 3
years.
