• Golfing addicts will be in their element at Sun City with a choice of two exceptional, yet very different golfing experiences in the Gary Player Golf Course and the Lost City Golf Course.

    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 the leading golf course in South Africa.

    Home to the Nedbank Golf Challenge, these fairways have been walked by the best in the game, from Jack Nicklaus and Ernie Els to the fierce Tiger Woods. Stretching over more than 7000 metres, it’s definitely one of the world’s longest golf courses and its challenge is both physical and mental.

    The par-five ninth hole is one of the most scenic with its island green, while the stroke one eighth hole is a tough test for even the professionals.

    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.

    The Lost City Golf Course

    The popularity of the Gary Player Golf Course required a second course to be built at Sun City, so once again Gary Player was brought on board to design the 72-par, 18-hole Lost City Golf Course, which offers a completely different experience to the Gary Player Golf Course.

    In the elegant shadow of the Palace of the Lost City lies this interestingly mixed-terrain golf course. Golf carts are a necessity for this course and are included in the green fees, owing to the many changes in elevation.

    One of the highlights of the Lost City Golf Course is the 13th hole, a par-3 with an African continent- shaped green, bordered by a pond hosting several large Nile crocodiles. Let’s just say it’s best to avoid this pond, as you won’t want to fetch your ball if it lands here.

    This course, like the Gary Player Golf Course, offers championship tees, standard markers and the forward tees for novices. Many golfing critics and legends maintain that a great course layout should require every one of the 14 clubs in a golfer’s bag, and the Lost City Golf Course certainly does this.

    The Crocodile Lounge is a lovely light lunches and snack bar – open to everyone, not only for players – that offers remarkable views of this striking course and a halfway house included in the green fees. There is also a driving range and a putting green available for keen golfers to practice their shots. For group bookings, contact: +27 14 557 4417​.
