The Nedbank Golf Challenge has a long and illustrious history of providing a stage for the world's best golfers to enthral the South African golf-loving public. The tournament has grown in stature over three decades, and what began as just an exhibition of golf soon grew into a fully-fledged tournament, complete with official world ranking points. The tournament has unquestionably become the greatest showcase of golf on the African continent.
The challenge takes place during the first week of December, a time of the year when both the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup and the European Tour's Race to Dubai have been concluded. The marquee names in professional golf consider the Nedbank Golf Challenge to be a year-end highlight. The live television broadcast goes out to about 200 countries, raising Nedbank's profile while at the same time marketing South Africa as a tourist destination and drawing attention to Sun City. This is a fitting tribute to one of South Africa's greatest resorts and golf courses and reaffirms the tournament's status as Africa's Major.
