The Joburg Open was a men's professional golf tournament on the Southern Africa-based Sunshine Tour. The event was founded in 2007 and was played at the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The tournament was contested over both the West and East courses for the first two rounds, enabling a large field of 210 competitors, with the final two rounds being played over the East course following a cut to the top 65 and ties.
The tournament was co-sanctioned by the European Tour, which helped provide a larger prize fund and attract stronger fields. It was one of several tournaments in South Africa on the European Tour's international schedule. It was also one of the events where high-finishing players earned entry into The Open Championship if not already exempt.
Originally contested in January or February, the tournament moved to December in late 2017 and became a tri-sanctioned event with the Asian Tour joining the European Tour and the Sunshine Tour in sanctioning the event; the number of players in the field increased from 210 to 240. The December 2017 event was part of the 2018 European Tour.
