Nedbank Golf Challenge History

Gary Player and founded by Sol Kerzner brain child came to life in 1981. The tournament was initially named - The Million Dollar Challenge on account of its staggering US$1 million prize fund, with the winner's share being $500,000.

Over the years the contest has matured into one of the most sought-after prizes, attracting the best players from across the globe.


In 1987 the event was contested as a "winner takes all" basis, with the winner claiming the entire of the million dollar fund prize. This was intended to oppress any doubts the world's top golfers might have had with regards to competing in South Africa during the apartheid era. Organisers were somewhat successful in doing so given that the tournament has stood the test of time but has evolved into what is now know throughout the world as 'Africa's Major'.

2013 Nedbank Golf Challenge

The flagship tournament of the South African golfing calendar takes place on the weekend of the 5th -8th December. Once again the organisers have confirmed a star-studded line-up which has been restructured to accommodate more players.


The charge will be led by 37 year-old Henrik Stenson who is arguably the in-form golfer of the moment .The Swede is set to finish the year as Europe's number one after a sterling 2013 that saw him become the first man to win the Fed Ex Cup and the Race to Dubai in the same season after emerging victorious at the DP World Tour Championships and many are now tipping to him to surpass World Number One Tiger Woods.

Stenson has pulled out of the South African Open Championship due to a wrist injury but is confident of recovering in time for the Nedbank Golf Challenge.


Other international stars include South African-born Englishman Justin Rose, Luke Donald and another regular visitor in Spaniard Sergio Garcia. Some golfers have already arrived in the country with many taking a short South African holiday while going on safaris.


As usual there is also a strong South African contingent led by Major winners Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel and solid professional Richard Sterne .Schwartzel will be confident of his chances having finished second to Germany's Martin Kaymer after a strong final round last year while Oosthuizen has surged up the rankings in recent months having recovered from injury, he played for the Internationals at this year's Presidents Cup along with Sterne who makes his second appearance at Sun City.
