Golf Tours

South Africa has a very proud golfing history and dates back to the founding of the first golf club in 1886, the Cape Golf Club, now known as The Royal Cape Golf Club. The South African Open Championship is one of the oldest national open golf championships in the world, and is one of the principal tournaments on the local Sunshine Tour. Since 1997 it has also been co-sanctioned by the European Tour and as the flagship event on the Sunshine Tour, the tournament also receives special status from the Official World Golf Rankings, with the winner being guaranteed a minimum of 32 points regardless of the strength of the field.

In fact there are several other tournaments which are also sanctioned and form part of the European tour including the Nedbank Golf challenge at the Gary Player Golf Club at Sun City, the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek on the Crocodile River bordering the Kruger National Park and the Johannesburg Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club.

South Africa has produced some world class international champions such as Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Charl Swartzel, Louis Oosthuizen and Rory Sabbatini, to name but a few.

For the golf enthusiast, South Africa is a world class destination - and that's an understatement. The country boasts an ideal climate for spending time out on the fairways under the bright African sun, and golfers here are spoilt for choice. There is a fantastic selection to choose from, and we have chosen some of the best courses in some of the most stunning and unique areas, such as the Kruger National Park, Sun City, the Drakensberg Mountains, Cape Town and the Winelands, and the golfing mecca of South Africa: the Garden Route.
