This spectacular championship course enjoys a spectacular location found in the world, on the slopes of the Lebombo Mountain Range that curves gently down into the valley. The first nine holes are comparatively level but the second nine fully exploits the mountainous terrain. Challenging features include lakes, gullies thick with vegetation, and wickedly sited bunkers – one is so steep it requires steps to get in!
Carved around the majestic hippo and crocodile filled lakes, this course is as good as it gets and is on most golfers bucket lists! The championship layout has hosted numerous tournaments including the European Tour's Alfred Dunhill Championship
Located in the beautiful Drakensburg Mountain, this stunning course is one of South Africa’s most beautiful golfing venues. It undulates up and around the contours of a valley that nestles under the dominant peaks of Champagne and Cathkin Peaks, with the lower hills creating a kaleidoscope of colour filled with trees – a challenging course, but in beautiful surroundings!
