Avis is proud to be partners the Joburg Open golf tournament
The Joburg Open is a men's professional golf tournament on the Southern Africa-based Sunshine Tour. The event was founded in 2007, and is played in January or February at the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club in Johannesburg, South Africa. The tournament is contested over both the West and East courses for the first two rounds, enabling a large field of 210 competitors, with the final two rounds being played over the East course following a cut to the top 65 and ties. Since its inauguration, the tournament has been co-sanctioned by the European Tour, which has helped provide a larger prize fund and attract stronger fields. It is one of several tournaments in South Africa on the European Tour's international schedule. It is also one of the events where high-finishing players earn entry into The Open Championship if not already exempt.
