Opened in 2013, Centurion has quickly established itself as an elite venue, hosting many top competitions including women’s European Tour events. And “demanding” was the word used by Charl Schwartzel to describe Centurion upon his win.
Golfers must be particularly accurate off the tee here when the course is playing to its full 7,100-yard length. It’s a track that has been superbly designed, mixing pine forests with rolling countryside, and presents a tough test even for the best in the world.
