Hunting for Leopard Creek?

The Alfred Dunhill Championship takes place at Leopard Creek Country Club in Mpumalanga, on the border of Kruger National Park. With prize money of more than £1,000,000 there's something to play for.

The field take to Leopard Creek for the fifth consecutive year as the Alfred Dunhill Championship gets underway from the 11th - 14th December.

The course, financed by Johann Rupert and designed by Gary Player will feature a selection of wildlife - the water features on course are home to the occasional hippo - alongside course regulars - the croc's!

Casting an eye towards the betting and we instantly look for Ernie Els, who isn't actually taking part in this year's event. But South Africans are the players to be watched this week.

Charl Schwartzel looks good to be "up there" at the close of play on Sunday but his price reflects the views held about the South African, pre-tournament second favourite at 9/1. He won the Dunhill Championship back in the 04/05 season and he recently gained victory at the Madrid Masters.

Favourite in the betting, Lee Westwood, is the highest ranking player in this week's event, and probably the biggest name too. Westwood is a lip curling 6/1, which gives backers little value of anything but a win from the Worksop born pro, but he has got previous here, finishing third in the 2006 event.

James Kingston, who joins Westwood and Brendan Pappas in their first round 3-ball on Thursday, may also be worth considering in the betting, having won the South African Airways Open earlier in the season - 33/1 for victory this week.

Fancy a 150/1 outsider? Oskar Henningsson - a young Swede who has been victorious through all three stages of European Tour Q-School as well as the final, takes part in this week's South African event
