Alfred Dunhill Championship - Tournament Preview

The DP World Tour remains in South Africa for a second consecutive week, this time it's the Alfred Dunhill Championship to be held at Leopards Creek Country Club. The course was renovated in 2017 and since then it is a much stiffer test of golf which plays into the hands of the longer hitters. The changes have also firmed up the fairways and greens so players who have the most accuracy and control will excel.

Course: Leopard Creek Country Club, Malelane, South Africa
Length: 6,628 meters
Par: 72
Greens: Bermuda
