The 2017 Tshwane Open takes place from 2 – 5 March at the beautiful Pretoria Country Club in the leafy suburb of Waterkloof.
This highly anticipated 72-hole stroke play championship over four rounds will feature a total of 156 international and local professional golfers.
It forms part of the 2017 Sunshine Tour and is co-sanctioned with the European Tour. The Sunshine Tour represents the highest level of competition for male professional golfers in Southern Africa.
The tournament provides players a chance to gain Sunshine Tour Order of Merit points, European Race to Dubai points and much sought after world ranking points.
The prize fund stands at R16.5-million.
The Pretoria Country Club plays host, providing a premier par 70 course designed by the Gary Player Group. The course ranks in the Top 50 in the country and offers an outing that is both challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all levels.
The parklands course has fast and subtly sloping greens, with water hazards being a feature on almost half the holes. The trees and long grass make things tight from several tees, particularly on the first. Some 90 bunkers are spread along the fairways and around the greens, with 14 of them on the final hole.
The scenic fairways and greens complement the Edwardian architecture of the clubhouse, which officially opened its doors in 1910.
