The European Tour arrives in South Africa today as the Nedbank Golf Challenge tees off in Sun City, South Africa.
Gary Player will rightly host the Nedbank Challenge, the seventh rolex series event of the season, which will be played on the Gary Player Course at Sun City over the next 4 days.

Our South Africa specialist Kallam visited Sun City back in June this year alongside Mark, here’s what Kallam had to say:

“The Gary Player Country Club hosts the Nedbank Challenge which is a fantastic event which attracts the world’s best golfers who all relish the opportunity to play this magnificent golf course.”

“When played off the back sticks it’s said to be one of the longest and toughest courses on earth, luckily, we opted for the white tees and took caddies as none of us had played the course before.”

“The weather was absolutely perfect, and the course lived up to all expectations, tough but fair. No greater example of this was me shooting +4 for 18 points on the front nine and then collapsing to a total of 7 points on the back nine!”
Kallam is tipping Louis Osthuizen to take the Nedbank Challenge Trophy!
