Event Info

The Nedbank Golf Challenge has entered a new era with a change in format, an increase in prize money, and the addition of official ranking points that will attract one of the strongest and deepest fields in world golf to Sun City from 5-8 December.

The most significant restructuring of 'Africa’s Major' in its 32-year history will feature an increased 30-man field competing for a total purse of $6.5 million at the Gary Player Country Club – an increase of $1.5 million on the 2012 prize money. The first place cheque will remain $1.25 million, and last place will be worth $100 000.
