This world-renowned golf course, designed by golf legend Gary Player, is an 18-hole par-72 walking-only course. Built in an extinct volcanic crater, this immaculate golfing paradise conforms to the stringent US PGA specifications and was named South Africa’s Best Golf Course in the World Golf Awards 2015.
It is also home to the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge which plays host to some of the world’s most famous golfing legends. The tournament has seen some exceptional wins by great players such as Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Jim Furyk, Sergio García and Lee Westwood.
When construction of the Sun City Resort began in 1978, the decision was taken to build a golf course that would rival the best in the world. From the championship tees, the course measures a mammoth 8000 yards – but either the intermediate or the forward tees can be used without the integrity of the design being impaired. Another strength of this layout is that it favours no particular shape of shot.
