Located on the border of the Kruger National Park, the Hans Merensky Golf Course is not to be missed. Set in a unique bushveld atmosphere, you will have the pleasure of sharing your round of golf with the resident giraffe, hippo and crocodiles, to mention just a few of the local wildlife, including over 200 species of birds. In existence for 30 years and designed by Bob Grimsdell, this 6,549 metre long, 18-hole Championship Course was voted the best walking course in the country and recently received the Diamond Arrow Award for being the highest rated golf course in a survey conducted by the Limpopo Province.
The signature hole for this course is the par-3, 17th, playing across a dam where, if you’re lucky, you might find a hippo or two lurking in the depths.
A fence generally prevents the animals from roaming onto the course but the wildlife is able to enter via the clubs private game reserve to the south. Don’t be surprised if you stumble across a giraffe determined to share the fairways with you and join your golf party!
The Hans Merensky Golf Course has hosted many professional and amateur tournaments, such as the Khumbula Golf tournament, The Annual SA Country Districts Tournament and the Maroela Tournament, to name a few.
With 4 star accommodation at the Hans Merensky Hotel & Spa, and exciting encounters with wildlife during your round of golf, this is definitely a destination worth visiting.
