The inaugural Africa Open took place in 2008 in the Eastern Cape of South Africa at the Fish River Sun Country Club, but it changed in 2009 to its current venue at the East London golf course in South Africa and it has remained a popular golf event for betting ever since.
The change was made to attract a higher calibre of player which has in turn made it a very competitive tournament for golf betting, and it is now in fact part of both the South African Sunshine Tour and the European Tour. It will count towards the European Tour's Race To Dubai points and with the winners board dominated by South Africans it is well worth looking out for the odds of Charl Schwartzel, Retief Goosen and co in the betting.
The event takes place yearly in January and involves a prize purse of 1million(Euros). It is sandwiched between the South African Open Championship and the prestigious Joburg Open as the season starts to get into full swing.

The Joburg Open first took place in 2007 and since then it has been co-sanctioned by the European Tour which has meant an evenmore competitive field of players and the prize fund has increased.
It is also part of the South African Sunshine Tour and takes place during January each year at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in South Africa.
Previous winners include the South African Charl Schwartzel, but he faces a tough task to win the title again with more European players taking part. The fierce competition in the field should provide some great opportunities for the punter.....
