- The South African Open will take place behind-closed-doors at Gary Player Country Club in Sun City.
- This will conclude the European Tour's South African swing, which begins with the Joburg Open and Alfred Dunhill Championship.
- The South African Open will have a prize fund of R19.5 million.
The European Tour's upcoming three-week South African swing will be completed by the South African Open Championship, which will be played from 3-6 December.
The 110th SA Open will be played for the first time at the iconic Gary Player Country Club in Sun City.
The co-sanctioned tournament with the Sunshine Tour will follow the Joburg Open and the Alfred Dunhill Championship.
The SA Open, which is the second oldest national Open in golf, will have a prize fund of R19.5 million.
Chief Executive of the European Tour Keith Pelley, said: "I am delighted to see the South African Open Championship back on our International Schedule this year and sincere thanks go to everyone at the Sunshine Tour, GolfRSA, the South African Golf Association, Nedbank and Sun International for their commitment and support in making this happen.
"Since our season restarted in July, we have taken a measured approach to our tournaments, informed every step of the way by our medical advisers and Government guidance in the countries we play.
"We have also tried to stage consecutive tournaments, wherever possible, in geographical clusters to reduce the onus on international travel, which makes today’s announcement, following on from the news of the Joburg Open and the Alfred Dunhill Championship in preceding weeks on our schedule, all the more pleasing."
Like the Alfred Dunhill Championship, this will be the second appearance of the South African Open Championship on the 2020 European Tour schedule, the tournament having been contested in January at Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg, where home favourite Branden Grace triumphed.
In the absence of the Nedbank Golf Challenge this year, Nedbank and Sun International - both longstanding sponsors of South African professional golf - agreed to support the country's national Open.
Thomas Abt, Commissioner of the Sunshine Tour, said he was delighted to be able to confirm such a strong run of co-sanctioned tournaments at the end of the year.
"To have three big tournaments such as the Joburg Open, Alfred Dunhill Championship and South African Open Championship in a three-week stretch of international golf of the highest calibre on South African fairways is truly a testament to the incredible relationship we have with the European Tour, and our strong partnerships with our sponsors. We are extremely grateful to Nedbank and Sun International for their decision to support our national Open in this way."
