“We’re very excited about this partnership as it provides the perfect opportunity for us to align with the highest level of the sport to support up and coming South African golfers, and is an ideal backdrop to engage with existing and new customers.”
Golf has an important value for both Jaguar and Land Rover and represents the tangible essence of both brands: tradition, sports elegance, style, determination but also respect for nature and the environment.
Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour, said:
“Jaguar Land Rover epitomises excellence and quality and we are proud to be able to associate with such a globally-respected brand. The golfer who wins in each of the selected categories has shown an equal level of excellence over a sustained period of time throughout the season, and a vehicle of this quality will be a fitting reward for their hard work and dedication”

About Jaguar Land Rover: Reimagining the future of modern luxury by design
Jaguar Land Rover is reimagining the future of modern luxury by design through its two distinct, British brands.
Our current model range embraces fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid vehicles, as well as the latest diesel and petrol engines. Our class-leading Jaguars and Land Rovers are in demand around the world and in 2020 we sold 425,974 vehicles in 127 countries. Land Rover is the global leader of luxury SUVs through its three families of Range Rover, Discovery and Defender. Jaguar is the first ever brand to offer a premium all-electric performance SUV, the Jaguar I-PACE.
At heart we are a British company, with two major design and engineering sites, three vehicle manufacturing facilities, an Engine Manufacturing Centre and a Battery Assembly Centre in the UK. We also have vehicle plants in China, Brazil, India, Austria and Slovakia. Three of our seven technology hubs are in the UK – Manchester, Warwick (NAIC) and London – with additional sites in Shannon, Ireland, Portland, USA, Budapest, Hungary and Shanghai, China.
Central to our Reimagine strategy is the electrification of both the Land Rover and Jaguar brands with two clear, distinct personalities. All Jaguar and Land Rover nameplates will be available in pure electric form by the end of the decade. This marks the start of the company’s journey to become a net zero carbon business across its supply chain, products and operations by 2039.
As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Motors since 2008, Jaguar Land Rover has unrivalled access to leading global players in technology and sustainability within the wider Tata Group.
