This tournament is usually hosted by the Stellenbosch Go Club, and with the Cape Town Open, usually form the 2 highlights of the Western Cape Go calendar. The tournament is usually held in the second half of the year.
The tournament is typically a 3-round MacMahon tournament, taking up a morning and afternoon. It is open to all, but SAGA members receive a discount. (Note that you can pay your SAGA membership fee at the tournament.)
Time limits are usually 45 minutes per player plus overtime (byo yomi) of 15 stones in 5 minutes.
Until 2005, this tournament was known as the Western Cape Open.
