Golf in South Africa

Golf courses for all abilities

South Africa is well known for its outstanding golf courses at Sun City, along the Garden Route (in particular at Fancourt), Port Elizabeth, Durban and in the Lowveld/Mpumalanga area.

Fancourt is ranked in the Top 5 of the golf courses in South Africa and boasts 3 courses - Montagu, Outeniqua and The Links.  The latter was designed by Gary Player.

Leopards Creek in Mpumalanga offers an exciting and different golfing experience, with water features also home to crocodiles - so no losing your ball in there please!  As well as meeting fellow golfers along the way, you may also encounter hippo, antelope and even elephant during your time on the course.

The Royal Cape in Cape Town is the oldest golf club in South Africa, founded in 1886. Over the years, it has hosted many South African Opens.

Sun City, a resort in its own right, has two 18-hole par 72 golf courses designed by Gary Player - the Lost City Golf Course and the aptly names Gary Player Golf Course. The Lost City is particularly famous for the water hazard on the 13th hole - yes, more crocodiles!

Whilst you can have a purely 'golfing holiday' and plan your trip to take in a couple of rounds at several of the many famous and iconic courses spread across the country, away from the golf course, South Africa has more to offer than just about any other destination.  From the beautiful city of Cape Town with its stunning setting, great beaches and countless attractions right the way up to the world famous safari experiences of the Kruger National Park, there is so much to do in addition to the golf that most visitors feel that 2 weeks is really the minimum length of trip to try and squeeze as much as possible in.

Whilst many golfers prefer to travel with their own clubs, the majority of courses are happy to rent out equipment meaning that if you are just looking to include a couple of rounds their is no need to bring your own clubs if you don't want the expense and hassle of taking them around everywhere else with you.
