STATEMENT BY UGU SOUTH COAST TOURISM:
WATCH OUT… for incredible national and international television exposure for the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast
Whilst the Cell C SA Women’s Open team are hard at work, so are several television production crews working alongside them. And assisting them is South Coast Tourism, proudly facilitating their production requirements.
This includes hosting and filming two of the top golfers on an exhilarating day out, pushing their comfort zone boundaries by attempting the highest swing in the world.
These activities bring excellent exposure to the South Coast’s famed hinterland, where the millennia old, majestic Oribi Gorge offers visitors a very unexpected experience. After all, the South Coast is not all about beaches.
In addition to the international exposure, here is some inside information as to Espresso’s broadcast schedule, the content thereof and some dates to diarise:
There will be a 1 x 4 minute studio interview with both Pro and with Tournament representatives with a further explanation as to why the SA Women’s Open has a sustained use of the South Coast for this event.

– This was broadcast on Friday 10 October.
