SSouth Africa is one of the world’s best golfing holiday destinations. Golfers from around the world are continuously impressed by the standard of the courses they play and it’s no surprise too as South Africa has some of the best in the Southern Hemisphere. One only needs to understand the country’s natural beauty to understand why beauty is par for the course.

So, if you’re looking to take a golfing tour, South Africa has numerous golfing holiday tour operators who can arrange your golf adventures around the country. This need not be an expensive adventure, it can be done according to your budget and available time.

Did You Know?
TThe first recorded instance of a golf game in South Africa was in Cape Town in 1885.

EEven if you aren’t part of an arranged golfing tour, it’s still very easy to hire a car from one of the country’s major airports and opt for an independent golfing safari. South Africa has excellent roads and travelling around is a lot easier than most international golfers might expect, despite the vastness of the country. There are plenty of courses willing to hire out a set of clubs for those who just want to have a quick round on a whim.

From Johannesburg, wildlife resorts such as the Kruger National Park and Sun City are but a few hours' drive away and some of the country’s top courses are situated near these parks. There is even one inside the Kruger National Park, so you can expect actual wildlife to spectate your round.

SSome of the courses to consider in the northern part of South Africa—within driving distance of OR Tambo International Airport —include Sun City, Legends Golf and Safari Resort, Leopard Creek and the Hans Merensky Golf Course. In fact, Legends has a famous 3-par 19th hole where you tee off from the top of a cliff and get there via helicopter. Now that’s some extreme golfing!

The Western Cape province, which includes the City of Cape Town as well as the famous and ever-beautiful Garden Route, should be on every golfer’s bucket list. Fancourt, a golf estate in the Garden Route town of George, has three world-class courses with luxury accommodation. The Eastern Cape also has several excellent golf holiday establishments, such as St Francis Golf Lodge, which has received some rave reviews on respected independent travel tip websites, i.e. TripAdvisor.

So go on, tee off on an unforgettable golfing adventure that will take your breath away, South Africa is waiting for you.
