The Nedbank Golf Challenge
The Gary Player Country Club is acknowledged as a difficult and demanding course. Since 1981 it has been home to the Nedbank Golf Challenge. The course requires stamina and accuracy from players.
Off the back markers the course measures over 7 000 metres which makes it one of the longest in the world. But a variety of tees make it possible to shorten the course and render playable for all levels of golfers. A distinguishing feature of the course is its green's complexes, with strategically placed bunkers, swales and mounds that protect the super slick clover shaped greens. With pristine perfect kikuyu fairways and excellent bent grass greens the course is kept in perfect condition all year round.
The Nedbank Golf Challenge is one of the highlights of the South African sporting calendar. In a 36 year history, the event has featured the biggest names in world golf. With 72 players, playing over 4 days, for a purse of $7.5 million. The tournament takes place from the 8-11 November 2018 and forms part of the Rolex Series on the European Tour and the penultimate event on the Race to Dubai.
