Durban Country Club to stage 100th SA Open Championship
PAARL (20 December 2009) – The South African Open Championship will return to Durban Country Club for the centenary edition of the championship in 2010.
The South African Golf Association and championship promoters Maru Sport made the announcement at Pearl Valley Golf Estates on Sunday, shortly after Scotland’s Richie Ramsay won this year’s title.
The 100th South African Open will be hosted in association with the province of KwaZulu-Natal next December, and returns to Durban Country Club for the 17th time – the most of any golf course in the country.
“We are delighted to be able to take the South African Open back to the one course in this country which has such close ties with the history of this great championship,” said Mosire Motsei, the chief executive of Maru Sport.
“In association with the province of KwaZulu-Natal, we look forward to celebrating 100 years of South African golf history in what is not only a significant sporting year for the championship, but for our country as a whole.”
