South Africa’s spaciousness, ideal climate and unbeatable scenery provide the golfing enthusiast with the ideal golfing destination. According to the S.A. Golfing Association, there are more than four hundred and fifty affiliated golf clubs serving over 125,000 golfers. These world-class golf courses range from fairways in the bush, where zebra and giraffe may roam freely under the African sun, to a stunning selection of coastal greens, where welcome cooling breezes blow off the ocean. Whether you prefer the challenge of a coastal course or prefer playing at an altitude where the ball flies that much further, in South Africa you are spoiled for choice with some of the world’s best and most affordable courses.
One of the most famous golf courses in S.A. is the Gary Player Country Club at Sun City, which boasts the Nedbank Golf Challenge, offering the biggest world prize of any tournament. This is one of the many world-class courses which have featured on both the European PGA Tour as well as the local Sunshine Tour. Should you choose to combine safari and golfing experiences, there are also a number of exclusive luxury game lodges which offer both magnificent courses and close encounters with the Big Five and other wildlife.
South Africa is home to a number of world-renowned golfers including Gary Player, Ernie Els, Bobbie Locke, Retief Goosen and Trevor Immelman, and given the ideal climate, multifarious choice and general excellence of the supporting infrastructure, it is no wonder that locals and tourists alike flock to these destinations.
