Top professionals returning to Leopard Creek
The magnificent Leopard Creek Country Club will once again welcome the finest professionals from the Sunshine Tour and European Tour for the 2019 Alfred Dunhill Championship from 28 November to 1 December.
The Alfred Dunhill Championship, co-sanctioned by both the Sunshine Tour and European Tour, will ensure a thrilling finale to the South African golf year as it follows the Nedbank Golf Challenge as the final tournament played on South African fairways in 2019. And the prestigious tournament also tees off the European Tour’s new 2020 season.
Since 2000 the Alfred Dunhill Championship has occupied a premier place in world golf with a list of past champions including Major winners and former world number ones in Adam Scott, Justin Rose, Charl Schwartzel and Ernie Els.
Schwartzel holds the record for the most Alfred Dunhill Championship titles of four, while fellow South African Branden Grace remains the only player to have won both the Alfred Dunhill Championship and its partner tournament, the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.
American David Lipsky won the 2018 Alfred Dunhill Championship by two strokes on his debut in the tournament, thereby claiming his second European Tour title.
