THE MOST ANTICIPATED
EVENT IN THE INDIAN
OCEAN
As Selwyn Nathan, Executive
Director of the Sunshine
Tour, says, the ABMO is
currently the numberone golf ambassador in
the Indian Ocean region:
“This year has been another
milestone in strengthening
the presence of golf in the
southern hemisphere with
the third edition of the
AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open
– undoubtedly the most
important tournament for the
growing collaboration between
Sunshine, European and Asian
Tours. The speed at which
this tournament has become
the most anticipated sporting
event in the Indian Ocean is
a testament to the power of
our partnerships.”
