In a nutshell, the Series now has an admirable line up of sponsors any tournament would dream of.

The Katogo Invitational Golf Series is evidence that sport and corporate entities can achieve a lot together.

The annual event has continued to grow in strength and numbers since April and by the time it concludes for the 2023 Season in December, the journey will leave both the sponsors, and golfers in a better place.
