The Jacob's Creek Open Championship was a golf tournament on the PGA Tour of Australasia, and was co-sanctioned by the United States based Nationwide Tour from 2002. It was played annually in Adelaide, South Australia. In 2007, the last time the tournament was held, it was one of three tournaments on the Nationwide Tour held outside the United States.

The tournament was founded in 1960 as the South Australian Open, and enjoyed several different sponsors before the Jacob's Creek wine brand took over in 2002. After Jacob's Creek withdrew their support following the 2007 edition, the search for a new sponsor proved fruitless and the tournament was cancelled.[1]
