Where2Golf says: 

Skukuza Golf Course: Not yet visited by Where2Golf, we are indebted to Skukuza Golf Club for the following description : The Skukuza Golf Course is a very natural 9-hole (18-tee) course situated within the world-renowned Kruger National Park on the outskirts of the Skukuza restcamp. The rich wildlife sanctuary surrounding the golf course is home a huge variety of birds and countless animals, which provides the visitor with a close-to-nature golfing experience - about as close as you can get. Since the course is not fenced, uninvited spectators are a common sight, hippo, impala, warthog and baboons to mention but a few. The course offers the combined pleasures of challenge and adventure. For example the par-3 2nd, has water protecting the left and back of the green. The signature par-3 9th requires a 150 metre shot across Lake Panic. This natural bush-style course in the Kruger Park has no bunkers, although "aerial hazards" abound, with many trees found on the course.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).

Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
