The Gary Player Country Club is arguably the most recognisable course in South Africa, having been the host of the Nedbank Million Dollar Challenge since 1981. Measuring in excess of 7,700 yards from the Championship tees, framed by the Pilansberg Mountains, it is easy to see why this is revered as one of South Africa's, and the world's, top golf courses.
Attracting a world-class field of professional golfers each year for The Million Dollar Challenge, Sun City, and The Gary Player Country Club, has no less than 13 different Major Championship winners amongst its elite band of Champions. The course that can claim winners ranging from Seve Ballesteros (1983 & 1984), Ian Woosnam (1987, the first winner of the prized $1,000,000 cheque), Sir Nick Faldo (1994), Ernie Els (1999, 2000 & 2002), Sergio Garcia (2001 & 2003) and Your Golf Travel's Lee Westwood (2010 & 2011).
With scoring traditionally very good despite the challenge offered this can be one of the year's most exciting tournaments. Ernie Els claims the tournament record with an incredible -25 four-round total including closing rounds of 64 and 66 over the weekend.
