The Joburg Open is a men's professional golf tournament on the Southern Africa based Sunshine Tour. The event was founded in 2007, and is played in January at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in Johannesburg, South Africa.

In 2008, the event was contested over both the West and East courses for the first two rounds, enabling a large field of over 200 competitors, with the final two rounds being played over the East course following a cut to the top 65 and ties.[1]

Since its inauguration, the tournament has been co-sanctioned by the European Tour, which has helped provide a larger prize fund and attract stronger fields. It is one of four tournaments in South Africa on the European Tour's international schedule, alongside the Alfred Dunhill Championship, the South African Open and the Africa Open.
