BMW Golf Cup International Special Guest


A BMW Golf Cup International World Final wouldn’t be complete without a golfing legend as a special guest to honour the finalists by holding a golf clinic and presenting the trophies. And who better to take on this role than one of the big players on the golfing scene: Colin Montgomerie. 

If anyone knows how to celebrate success on the golf course, it’s Colin Montgomerie. Born in Glasgow in 1963, he had one of the most impressive careers in European golf. He became a pro in 1988 and won his first award straight away: Rookie of the Year on the European Tour. The first tournament victory followed in 1989, at the Portuguese Open.

Since then, the popular Scotsman has won 53 tournaments around the globe, including teh BMW International Open in 1999. To date, no other player has won the "European Tour Order of Merit" more often: "Monty" achieved this feat no fewer than eight times.

In 2010, the name Colin Montgomerie regularly made headlines in the golfing press once again. "Monty" is regarded as one of the best Ryder Cup players of all time, this was the year that as captain he managed to regain the coveted trophy from the USA. In extreme weather conditions, Montgomerie led his team to victory in Wales with his wealth of experience in a heart-stopping final. He was added to the "World Golf Hall of Fame" in 2013. Montgomerie has won three senior majors to date.


South Africa is a dream tourist destination. With its majestic mountain ranges, craggy cliffs and superb sandy beaches, the country offers a unique and unparalleled wealth of natural landscapes. Particularly impressive is the picturesque “Garden Route”, which stretches along the Indian Ocean from Still Bay on the Western Cape to the Tsitsikamma Coastal National Park on the Eastern Cape, with its luscious vegetation and expansive forests.

In particular, the picturesque "Garden Route", which stretches from Still Bay on the Western Cape to Tsitsikamma Coastal National Park on the Eastern Cape along the Indian Ocean, impresses with its lush vegetation and sweeping trees. The "Cape of Good Hope" in the southwest of the country is world famous. And then there are the exciting metropolis cities of Cape Town and Johannesburg, with their unique flair. The breath-taking scenery and fascinating cities would be reason enough to visit this fascinating country.

But it is the friendliness and openness of the people that make South Africa a corner of the earth that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. Its ethnic and cultural diversity are what earned the country its moniker "rainbow nation". The people are open and warm towards visitors.

Various National Parks in South Africa attract millions of tourists each year to see the marvellous flora and fauna. "The big five - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard" can be found in almost every South African National Park in their wildlife territories. Beside the big five there are various other animals to observe such as different species of gazelles, cheetahs, giraffes, monkeys etc.


South Africa's fauna is at least as diverse and multi-coloured as its wildlife. You can find everything from a Sup-Tropical Forest to a Lowveld vegetation. Countless of different plants, colourful flowers and trees are easy to find everywhere around the country.
