European Tour adds 2 stops in South Africa

The Joburg Open returns Nov. 19-22 after a 3-year absence, followed a week later by the Alfred Dunhill Championship

Announced: By the European Tour, that a two-tournament South Africa Swing will be played next month and co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour. The Joburg Open will return to the schedule after a three-year absence and be played Nov. 19-22 at Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg. The 19.5 million rand (about $1.2 million) Joburg Open will be the first international men’s tournament in South Africa in nine months. It will be followed by the 29 million rand (about $1.78 million) Alfred Dunhill Championship on Nov. 26-29 at Leopard Creek Country Club in Malelane, South Africa. No spectators will be permitted at either event. Because of COVID-19’s effects on the global golf calendar, the Alfred Dunhill event will make its second appearance on the European Tour’s 2019-20 schedule after having served as the season’s first tournament last November. The South Africa tournaments fill a gap between the Masters on Nov. 12-15 and the European Tour’s season finale, the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, on Dec. 10-13.
