The Sunshine Tour heads to the Wild Coast for the Wild Waves Challenge, where 120 Sunshine Tour professionals will compete for top honours. Defending champion Andrew Curlewis is a local favourite and his 2013 victory was welcomed by the crowds.
Wild Coast Country Club has played host to some of South Africa’s most prestigious tournaments, including the Nashua Masters. The Robert Trent Jones-designed course plays to 5807 metres from the tips and finds its defence in the coastal winds. The relatively short course lies just west of the Indian Ocean and the wind can certainly get blowing. The signature hole is the 13th, which is a par three that is played across a waterfall to a green which is partly hidden by rocks & bush.
