A unique golfing experience like no other

The Gary Player Course is the annual host to the Nedbank Golf Tournament and is one of the longest courses on the European Tour rota. Arguably one of the toughest golf courses in the southern hemisphere, it will test every aspect of your game as you deal with water hazards, bunkers, blind tee shots and some long carries with the driver. However, the condition of the course and your overall surroundings will make it one of the best rounds of golf you’ll ever play.

The Lost City Course, by comparison, is a little easier and suited for all golfers. Built out of the rocky terrain the course produces an incredible mountain landscape from nearly every hole. Due to its location within South Africa, you’re bound to see some different wildlife with what you’re used to back home, as Nile crocodiles make their home in many of the water hazards! The 13th signature hole is one you’ll certainly remember as the elevated tees direct your attention to the green shaped like the African continent.
