Planned to be both a challenge for the best golfers and fun for the average player, this 18 hole golf course was meticulously laid out in 1995 by the owner of the premises, Johann Rupert and Gary Player.
Set in an exceptional and unique location, innovative architectural and landscaping techniques ensure that the golf course is in harmony with the environment, while lakes and small streams have been diverted through the development to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies.
Not for the faint-hearted, the par 5 signature hole is not particularly long at 475m but the island green presents a tricky shot over water. The 13th is equally dramatic, with the green 'floating' above the Crocodile River which divides the course from the Kruger National Park.
A creek first splits the fairway and then runs alongside the left hand side of the hole. The green is built out over the river, which runs underneath.
