Alfred Dunhill Championship Past Winners and History

imageThe Alfred Dunhill Championship is part of the South African Sunshine Tour, and has been co-sanctioned by the European Tour since 2005.

Although the Alfred Dunhill Championship dates only to 2000, it is a continuation of the Alfred Dunhill company’s sponsorship of the South African PGA Championship. Alfred Dunhill sponsored that event from 1995 to 1999.

The Alfred Dunhill Championship was originally scheduled in January, but in 2004, it was moved to December to be a part of the European Tour Schedule. That led to the curious circumstance of two Dunhill Championships being held in that year.

Alfred Dunhill (30 September 1872 – 2 January 1959) was an English entrepreneur who made his fortune in tobacco and luxury goods. He was the founder of both the Alfred Dunhill luxury goods company (which sponsors the tournament), and Dunhill tobacco products (a separate company). Dunhill began by manufacturing accessories for cars, eventually developing a pipe designed for drivers. This led him to open a tobacco shop in Mayfair. After expanding to New York and Paris, Dunhill went into the production and sale of so-called luxury goods.

Today, Alfred Dunhill, Ltd. the sponsor of the Dunhill Championship, is specializes in ready-to-wear and custom menswear, leather goods, and accessories.

The Dunhill company also sponsors the Dunhill Links Championship, which is played in October.
