Courses in Kruger

Kruger, South Africa

Kruger National Park is one of the worlds leading wildlife parks and the flagship South Africa's game reserves. Combine playing golf on the courses that are on the outskirts of the Kruger Park with the bush and game-viewing activities. With the possibility of meeting wildlife on the courses, you won't even need to venture beyond your golf course to view some of Africa's finest wildlife!

Kruger Park's climate is subtropical with hot rainy summers from October and March, followed by warm dry winters. Game viewing and playing golf is a lot easier in winter from April to September due to the cooler temperatures and sparse vegetation.

Our favourite Kruger golf courses are shown below.

Kruger Golf Course, Par 72 – 6533m

Built along the banks of the Crocodile River, lakes and small streams have been diverted through this parkland course carved out of the bushveld, to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies. Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek as much of the water is home to families of hippos and crocodile. Innovative landscaping techniques however ensure that the golf course is naturally protected from the abundance of wild life surrounding the course.

Green fees approx : May- Oct £22 Nov-Apr £22
Kruger golf course, Par 72 – 6036m

About one hour from Kruger the White River Country Club meanders gently through a valley. The course follows the natural undulations of the valley and regularly criss-crosses the White River which provides memorable challenges, both alongside fairways and fronting some of the greens. The course has been completely revamped into an exciting 18-hole layout. Gary Player played a part in the design and the course is invariably enjoyed by golfers of all levels.

Nelspruit Golf Course- a must-play if your golf holiday takes you to Kruger, this is the most popular golf course in the region. The course is landscaped with indigenous lowveld trees and over 256 different species of birds can be seen.

Since Peter Matkovich was commissioned to revamp and modernize the course, bunkers have appeared which strengthens the design.
