St Francis Bay Golf Course

This is a lovely golf course situated in the heart of the Village of St Francis Bay. Not a long course but every hole does make one think about the best strategy as far as tee shot and then the approach is mostly pretty challenging. The greens are always in great condition and the welcome at the Club is always hearty and one is made to feel a part of the family. The socia…

One of the most forgiving fairways i had ever played. The greens is a bit challenging, so you must really be able to read the green and be able to put. Anything less than a 2 put is a save. The Pro Shop is up to date with the latest technology. The only thing they need to improve on is the availability of Golf Carts.

Soweto Country Club Course

No Restaurant facility at all. The course is well maintained with its pro like greens. The best and fastest green this year. I am totally not happy with the pricing as far as green fees are concerned. They should make it much more affordable and cater for the Guys who usually support them. Please see if you can have them to drop the green fees especially during the week.

This is a definite for all South African golfers. The fairways are tough and challenging, make sure of your club selection as the distance can be deceiving. Real value for money course.

Centurion Country Club Golf Course

The course was in very good condition, although hole 7 was undergoing repairs. Quite fast and fair greens and great fairway. Varying hole layouts which was much appreciated. Friendly and polite staff in all matters.

Jack Nicklaus Signature Course - Masai Mara

Very friendly staff in all aspects. The greens were in great conditions, undulated and mid size which made it challenging. Many holes have a lot of bunkers which force you to plan your game to be successful.

Beautifully manicured fairways, wonderfully designed greens. Lush and green surroundings, sunny and warm in both summer and winter. Friendly staff to assist and great food at the halfway house. After an enjoyable round, it's always festive at the Drop Zone and Figtree.

Play golf in South Africa

Bobby Locke got South African golf on the world map by winning 13 tournaments, (incuding the British Open four times and he won the South African Open at the age of 17). For golf enthusiast, South Africa is great destination. The country is blessed with an ideal climate for a round of golf. And, the variety and number of golf courses is huge. You can play numerous South African golf courses along the Garden Route, but also near Johannesburg and the Kruger Park.
