The European Tour travels approximately 500 miles south from Johannesburg to East London for the Africa Open.

Opened 120 years ago, East London Golf Club enjoys spectacular views over the Indian Ocean and is one of the country's finest golfing venues.

This coastal location has small greens while wind is a constant factor which, when combined, puts an even greater emphasis on accurate iron play than normal.
