Nedbank Golf Challenge set to be highlight of SA golf yearon August 12, 2014
“Africa’s Major”, co-sanctioned by the Sunshine Tour and European Tour, will feature a world-class field of 30 players competing for a total purse of $6.5-million. The winner will again earn $1.25-million.
The field will be announced at a later date, as well as an entertainment line-up featuring a selection of South Africa’s leading musicians and comedians.
The preparations for this year’s event are in full swing, with the Gary Player Country Club now into an intensive 16-week programme of final conditioning.
“The field is taking shape very nicely and we’ve started the infrastructure build at Sun City. As always we like to bring in a few new elements each year, and I think golf fans are going to really enjoy what we have planned for this year’s tournament,” said Alastair Roper, Sun International’s Tournament Director of the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
