The Cock of the North was a golf tournament held in Zambia. It was part of the Sunshine Tour in 2000 and 2001. The tournament was founded in 1954 and was held at the Ndola Golf Club in Ndola.

The tournament was held annually until 1985, but was not part of a particular golf tour at that time. In 2000 and 2001 the tournament returned temporarily as part of the Sunshine Tour. In 2002 the tournament was cancelled due to lack of sponsorship.[1]

Note: The records from the Ndola Golf Club show that Craig Defoy, Sam Torrance, Tommy Horton, and Brian Barnes won the tournament in 1972, 1975, 1977, and 1979 respectively. However, records from the Zambia Open show that it was held at the Ndola Golf Club those years with those same winners, so it is likely that there was no separate Cock of the North tournament those years.
