For many people, the perfect game of golf is played in Scottland or the British Isles, buttoned up in tweed with rolling glens and snowy peaks in the background, but that would be robbing you of the pleasures of courses further south! South Africa is home to many iconic golf courses, many of which allow players to enjoy the game surrounded by the country’s fantastic wildlife. Here are just a few South African golf courses that provide a truly unique experience.
1. Leopard Creek Country Club
Nestled on the banks of Crocodile River, in the famous Kruger National Park, this 18 hole masterpiece embodies all the wonderful aspects of playing in South Africa. With plenty of elevation changes and water hazards, guests will be treated to a wonderfully challenging game while surrounded by the most incredible scenery and wildlife. Lucky visitors may even catch a glimpse of the course’s resident leopard! Leopard Creek is also one of the courses our guests will visit on their 13 Day Exclusive Safari, Golf and Cape Getaway package.
2. Devonvale Golf & Wine Estate
Needing little introduction, the Devonvale 18 hole Championship golf course has delighted local and international golfers for years and has received multiple improvements over the last 5 years, ensuring their standard of excellence never wavers. Located in Stellenbosch, South Africa’s wine Mecca, guests will not only get to experience world class golfing but world-class wine too!
3. Durban Country Club
Steeped in history and tradition, the Durban Country Club was one of the first South African golf courses to appear in the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World by Golf Digest. With a combination of the lush, coastal vegetation of the KwaZulu Natal coast and the beautiful ocean view, it’s little wonder why this course attracts so many competitive players. It is a challenging and beautiful course that will keep you coming back again and again.
With a great range of incredible course to choose from South Africa should undoubtedly be on any true golfer’s list of holiday destinations!
