The Dimension Data Pro-Am is one of the principal annual golf tournaments on the Southern African Sunshine Tour. It was played in 2009 at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa, with a prize fund in 2008 of 1.8 million rand. In 2012, the tournament was played from 16-19 February at Fancourt in George in the Western Cape for the second year in a row. It used the Montagu and Outeniqua courses as well as The Links for the first three rounds, and the final round will be played on the Montagu course. Prize money was increased to 3.2 million rand. Additionally, the winner of the event was exempt into the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The tournament was founded in 1996, and was co-sanctioned by the European Tour for the first two years, with enhanced prize money and fields as a result. Those first two events were won by former World Number 1 Nick Price and top European Tour player Mark McNulty.
