This year sees the return of the Joburg Open at Randpark Golf Club which was last played in 2018 and which has also hosted the South African Open in 1995 ¬– 2000, 2019 and 2020. The course that was established in the mid-60s has undergone some major changes since then. In 2015 Sean Quinn, constructed seven new holes on the Firethorn course and rebuilt every green and several bunkers were modified and given distinctive flash fronted faces.

The cameras will mainly focus on the 18th, which was changed from a long par five to a very tough 507-yard par four. The front nine plays like a totally different course, the par 3 2nd has been removed and replaced with a par five which doglegs right to the old 3rd green. The 6th, 7th and 8th holes were also replaced by four new holes that run counter-clockwise to the old routing.
