At the heart of each Gary Player Invitational is the act of giving back to those less fortunate and to raise funds in order to bring hope, help and healing to underprivileged children and communities worldwide. More than $64 million has been raised by The Player Foundation, which continues to positively impact the lives of those less fortunate.
THE EVENT Gary Player and a host of VIP corporate guests and friends will gather at the magnificent GlenArbor Golf Club for the Berenberg Gary Player Invitational. Each competing team of two amateur guests will get the opportunity to play with high-profiled personalities and professional golfers, representing an excellent cross-section of business, sport, entertainment and society. The Player Foundation has been nominated as the beneficiary of the event.

“WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE SUCH GREAT ORGANIZATIONS SERVE AS EVENT SPONSORS.”
I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jabu Mabuza. He was a man that I admired deeply and was a person who contributed a great deal to South Africa. I will miss him terribly and my love goes out to his family at this difficult time.
Seeing @garrick_higgo win his first PGA Tour event in only his second start has been one of the most enjoyable things for me to witness in my career. He is without a doubt the most humble, well mannered young man that you could wish to meet. Watch this space, big things to come!
As we await the #USOpen, I was reminded of when @b_dechambeau was practicing at night well after his round. His win is what’s remembered, but we should also remember that night before. I have much respect for that kind of hunger and I can’t wait to see who's victorious next week.
Jack, Arnie, Phil Rogers and myself at the 1963 @TheOpen Championship. Apparently the more time we spent together, the more we started to dress alike! Bob Charles defeated Phil in the playoff that year, with Jack finishing third. #TBT
