GThe sec­ond an­nual Joe Dlamini fundrais­ing golf tour­na­ment has been post­poned in­def- initely.

The tour­na­ment was sched­uled to take place this af­ter­noon at the Royal Swazi Sun and it has been since been shifted to next year due to ad­min­is­tra­tive is­sues.

The tour­na­ment’s co­or­di­na­tor Me­shack Zwane said they would soon an­nounce the new date when con­tacted yes­ter­day.

“We have since post­poned the tour­na­ment to next year af­ter we couldn’t se­cure enough funds to host the tour­na­ment. We will an­nounce the new date soon af­ter we have booked the golf course with the Royal Swazi Sun,”

“We haven’t got enough spon­sors for the tour­na­ment and we should push the games to next year. We are con­fi­dent that ev­ery­thing would be in place next year. We are ap­peal­ing to the na­tion and busi­ness com­mu­nity to as­sist us to stage the tour­na­ment aimed at de­vel­op­ing golf in the coun­try,” he said.

The tour­na­ment is aimed at hon­or­ing lo­cal golfer leg­end Joe Dlamini who shone dur­ing the early 80’s in the lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional scenes.

A three man lo­cal pick team re­cently se­cured a top 30 fin­ish dur­ing the 2018 Sun­shine Warm Hearts Pro­fes­sional Golf tour­na­ment held two weeks ago in Malawi.
