The European Tour will return to Johannesburg next month for the first time in almost three years.

The Joburg Open will be played at the Randpark Golf Club from 19 to 22 November, as the first of a series of tournaments co-sanctioned by the European Tour and the Sunshine Tour.

The tournament was last contested in December 2017, when it was won by India's Shubhankar Sharma.

European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said: "I am delighted to see the Joburg Open back on our schedule this year.

"We have a wonderful relationship with the Sunshine Tour stretching back over many years and this co-sanctioned tournament is another example of that."

Darren Clarke (2011) and Kevin Phelan (2015) were among the Irish runners-up at the tournament from its inception in 2007.
