The next King’s Cup golf tournament in Swaziland will hold in September 2012. The King’s Cup golf tournament is an annual event held in honour of His Majesty King Mswati 111 (who is both the Patron & Host). It is the largest golfing event in the country and has been running for the past five years.
The event attracts business people from neighbouring countries, mainly South Africa.
The tournament came about as the translation of His Majesty’s 2004 Job Creation Summit aimed at resuscitating the country’s economic performances, through foreign direct investment and sport tourism.
Since then the tournament has come to be officially known as “THE KING’S CUP GOLF EXTRAVAGANZA. It is hosted by the Swaziland Government in collaboration with the Swaziland Tourism in the Kingdom.
