Play Top South Africa Golf Courses


Serengeti Copper Leaf
(Ernie Els Course)

Royal Johannesburg Silver Lakes / Pretoria Country Club Pecan Wood Sun City Lost City

Thursday, October 18th to Saturday, October 27th

Serengeti
Jack Nicklaus Signature Design. Serengeti is the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Course to open in Gauteng province of South Africa. It is also the first full-scale cool-season evergreen grass golf course in the golf-rich province. Cool-season grasses are evergreen, creating a lush and finely manicured playing surface all year round.

Copperleaf
Copperleaf is designed by Ernie Els What makes this new golf development very special to Ernie Els is that his grandfather, Ernie Vermaak, grew up on this exact 690 hectares of land in and around 1918, on a farm then known as Knoppies Laagte. His grandfather was also the instigator of the golf-fever that was to take hold of the next two Els generations.

Royal Johannesburg
The course was laid out by the then club professional Robert (Bob) Grimsdell (1935), and later upgraded by Mark Muller (1998). The RJ East course in particular has hosted many top level events, including South African Opens and more recently the Joburg Open, an event co-sanctioned with the European Tour. Royal Johannesburg was the first course in Africa to become an Audubon International Certified Sanctuary course.

Pretoria Country Club


Original design by Robert (Bob) Grimsdell. Updated and re-bunkered by Gary Player in 2005 Pretoria CC regularly plays host to South African Tour events, like the Sunshine Tour. The club is renowned for being a quality sports and social venue, set in the magnificent surroundings of Pretoria Waterkloof. PCC boasts with a par 72 golf course, with a parklands layout.

Silver Lakes
Silver Lakes is design by Peter Matkovich. Silver Lakes Golf Club is part of an upmarket residential estate on the outskirts of Pretoria,situated in genuine bushveld country. As the name of the club implies, there is an abundance of lakes and attractive water features running through this spectacular course.

Pecanwood Golf Club


Jack Nicklaus Signature course. Wide fairways, big greens, a mass of bunkers, plenty of bail out areas and an absence of blind shots, all contribute to the excellence of this Nicklaus design. Pecanwood is appealing and playable to most levels of golfers, challenging their intelligence, rather than their strength. Opened in 1998, it was voted the best new course of the year by Golf Digest.

Sun City
Sun City is design by Gary Player. The Gary Player Country Club is home to the Nedbank Golf Challenge, an annual invitational event which brings together many of the world's top players to compete for one of the richest prizes in golf. The Gary Player golf course lies amidst beautiful bushveld scenery and is regarded as one of the worlds finest courses. Stretching over more than 7000 meters, it definitely is one of the world's longest golf courses. All 18 holes can be classified as difficult. There are plenty of bunkers and water hazards. The par five ninth, with its island green, is sure to be amongst the most spectacular holes.

Lost City ( at Sun City)


Lost City is design by Gary Player. The most hazardous area of the Lost City Golf Course is the 13th hole. This par-three hole is shaped like the continent of Africa. As you stand ready to tee off you will notice the water hazards and 9 bunkers guarding the hole. Inhabiting the water are 38 crocodiles, some of them nearly two meters long. The unusual water hazard is just one of the features that make the Lost City golf course exciting and interesting to play. No effort was spared in transforming this bushveld into a golfing oasis, thus making this course a masterpiece.
