The New City of Joburg Mayor Wastes No Time As She Hits Ground Running

Dr Mpho Phalatse, the newly elected Mayor of the City of Joburg, has had an immediate impact by formally announcing the 2021 Joburg Open, which is projected to generate significant revenue for the city. During a special council meeting this week, Phalatse was chosen, mayor. She stated that her priority was to offer basic services to communities while also combating corruption. Starting today, the event will be held at Randpark Golf Club's Firethorn Course.

Given the 19-month lockdown, this is a significant accomplishment, according to Phalatse. The Joburg Open is widely considered as one of the most prominent golf events on the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour calendars. Spectators will return since the Covid-19 laws allow for 2 000 fully vaccinated people at outdoor events under lockdown alert level 1. This year's tournament, according to Phalatse, will demonstrate the city's potential to hold important events in front of millions of TV viewers across the world, attracting investors. "I am thrilled to formally kick off the Joburg Open in 2021." The hosting of such a famous event at this critical juncture in our economy is a welcome boost. "We invite investors to visit, work, and play in our lovely city of opportunity," added Phalatse.

"Ladies golf is also receiving further investment from the city," she added, noting that the Joburg Ladies Open has been co-sanctioned as an event between the Sunshine Ladies Tour and the Ladies DP World Tour from 2022 to 2024, with a prize purse of R4.2 million. "I am excited to host the women's competition at the Soweto Country Club from March 3rd to March 5th, 2022." Phalatse displayed her thanks and admiration to the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour, as well as the tournament's sponsors and organizers, for pulling off a tournament that adhered to the standards and protocols established for non-contact sports under modified alert level 1.
