Golf Courses

DURBAN COUNTRY CLUB

Recently voted into the World’s Top 100 Golf Courses by Golf Magazine, USA. the beautiful Cape Dutch Architecture of the clubhouse enjoys stunning views out over the Indian Ocean making it a great place to relax after a testing round of golf.

LOST CITY GOLF COURSE

Carved out of undulating, rocky terrain with views of the bushveld and mountainous landscape from every part of the course this desert style course has a real links feel to it, with large waste bunkers that prevent safe landing areas from the tee, placing a premium on straight hitting.

ROYAL SWAZI

The Royal Swazi Sun’s spectacular, 18 hole Championship golf course is one of the most scenic locations found anywhere in the world with a different mountains cape waiting to be enjoyed from every tee and green.

LEOPARD CREEK

Located adjacent to the Crocodile River on the fringes of the Kruger National Park, Leopard Creek is carved around the majestic hippo and crocodile filled lakes, a first class championship course that is among the very best.
