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.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
