The stakes could not be higher as the Nedbank Golf Challenge celebrates its 40th edition at Sun City this November, and with SunBet commemorating this historic milestone by providing golf fans with an even greater variety of betting options for “Africa’s Major”.

The official sports betting partner of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, to be played from November 10-13 at the Gary Player Country Club, will be offering better odds and more markets at this year’s tournament as world golf welcomes the return of this event for the first time since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 40th edition has drawn a strong field including recent DP World Tour winners Ryan Fox, Robert MacIntyre and Guido Migliozzi as well as defending champion and two-time Ryder Cup star Tommy Fleetwood, South African DP World Tour winners Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Dean Burmester and Thriston Lawrence, and European Ryder Cup captain Luke Donald.

“As Sun International’s premier online gaming and sports betting platform, we’re delighted to be the official betting partner to an event of this magnitude. It’s been a few years since the last event due to Covid, so for our customers to experience the thrill of attending and betting on a world-class event with some of the very best international and local players at a marvellous venue is momentous and somewhat overdue,” said Simon Gregory, SunBet General Manager.

This year punters can look forward to an abundance of betting markets that will include the unique “Best Round Of The Day” market as well as the “Wire to Wire” (leading from start to finish) market.

SunBet’s other betting markets on offer include:

·         Best Score

“The excitement is not limited to those who are lucky enough to attend the tournament. Our online offering for the Nedbank Golf Challenge has improved significantly over the years and this year is no different. Exciting pre-tournament and live betting options will elevate your experience at the Nedbank Golf Challenge no matter where you are,” said Gregory.
