Lion of Africa Cape Town Open

This week the Sunshine Tour travels to the mother city, Cape Town for the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open played the Royal Cape Golf Club at the foot of Table Mountain.

This will be the 3rd time this event will be played on the Tour and this year it holds a very big incentive!! The winner of this year’s event will gain entry in next weeks Netbank Golf Challenge played at Sun City!! This could be the break a lot of us are working towards as “Africa’s Major” counts towards the European Tour Money List.

Lion of Africa Cape Town Open Royal: Day 1 in Cape Town, South Africa

The Royal Cape Golf Club was established in 1885 and boasts a rich history of golf tournaments including ten SA Opens and two Vodacom Players Championships!! It will definitely be a test this week as the famous south easter is forecasted to blow over the timeless parkland style course!!

As always there is Investec Cup points up for grabs and a good prize fund so a win or a good finish will do wonders on the Money rankings  and the Invested cup points ladder!!

To keep up to date with all the action follow the live scoring starting Thursday!!

After the last few tournaments where I had a chance to win in the last three events I am very confident in my chances at Humewood!! I’ve always liked playing here after playing here regularly as an amateur with much success!! I can’t wait to start play on Wednesday!!
