The South African Open Championship is one of the oldest national open golf championships in the world.

What a course for the South African Golf Open to be played on, a good test for the players, an exceptional course for the spectators, in general I can’t think of a better place for it to take place… Glendower is no spring chicken itself… 7th March 1937 it was officially opened… and two years down the line it held the Transvaal open that was won by the famous Bobby Locke..

So yes we have a top international field with our boys mixed in… almost like your USA competitions…
