Nelspruit Golf Club
Not far from the Kruger National park, the Nelspruit Golf Course, designed by Bob Grimsdell, was officially opened as a 9-hole course in 1939. With its spectacular backdrop of kopjes and classic African Lowveld, the course was extended by Grimsdell to an 18-hole course between 1967 and 1968. The course was left largely untouched until 1998 when designer Peter Matkovich led an extensive upgrade.
Measuring 6,063 metres, this course is not overly difficult to play, but still offers a satisfying challenge. With over 50 species of indigenous trees recorded so far, and strategically placed bunkers, it is not to be underestimated as a “walk in the park.”
The signature hole of the Nelspruit Golf Course is the 498 metre par-5, 14th hole where, from an elevated tee, a generous tree-lined fairway runs gradually down to a green surrounded by bunkers.
The Nelspruit Golf Club hosts the annual Jock of the Bushveld Festival of Golf, inviting hundreds of amateurs to compete.
Priding itself on having green fairways year-round, despite the dry winters, as well as a comfortable clubhouse and a well-stocked Pro Shop, this is a great destination for a round of golf in the African bush.
