The Gary Player Golf Course, designed by none other than the legendary Gary Player, is an 18-hole par-72 walking-only championship course that is regularly ranked as one of the leading golf courses in South Africa.
The Lost City Golf Course offers a 72-par, 18-hole desert-style course that incorporates 28 000 square metres of water features and includes a water hazard at Hole 13 which is home to 38 live Nile crocodiles.
Gary Player Country Club Golf Course
The birth of the Sun City Resort called for South African golfing professional, Gary Player, to design an award winning golf course that would fit in with the superlative venue. Using his experience and know-how as a professional golfer, Gary Player understood exactly what golfers would appreciate, while designing a course that is challenging and enjoyable.
The strength of this golf course lies in the fact that it doesn’t favour any particular shot, and provides the same result whether playing the forward or intermediate tees. 8000 yards of golfing pleasure await each player with mesmerising views at every turn.
Gary Player Golf Course
Located at the Gary Player Spa and Country Club, it is best known for hosting some of the world’s greatest golfers for the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge.
The popularity of the Sun City Resort led to the design and development of the Lost City Country Club. Gary Player was called upon again to extend his professional expertise by designing the golf course. Covered in the hardy Kikuyu grass, much like the Gary Player Country Club golf course at Sun City, the course offers undulating plains, expansive fairways, mountainous areas and small patches of desert.
This superlative golf course also offers players a distinctive region covered with a series of lakes that separate the 9th from the final hole. The 13th hole offers a green in the shape of the African continent, complete with a pond that is home to numerous Nile Crocodiles; adding to the true African appeal of this course.
