Skukuza Golf Course

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 1972

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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
