Your Itinerary

It is one of the most enticing travelers' destinations in the world, a tribute to man's imagination and revered for its art and architecture. Fabled to be the royal residence of an ancient king, it is truly one of the 'Worlds Leading Hotels''.

The Lost City Golf Course is flexible: playing off the forward tee a course length of 5953 meters, extending to 6 983 meters off the back tee. The course provides spectacular views of the Palace Hotel and the neighboring game reserve. The most hazardous area of the Lost City Golf Course is the 13th hole. Inhabiting the water hazard are 38 Nile crocodiles, some of them nearly 14 ft long. Playing the back nine is like going on a golf safari. It has often been noted that the game is more exciting when played downhill and this is certainly the case here. In addition to the previously mentioned 13th, holes eleven, fourteen, fifteen and sixteen are all played from elevated tees offering thrill, excitement and challenge to the golfer. And some of the most spectacular African views to be had on a golf course.

Carts are compulsory to navigate this layout and water hazards are prevalent, factoring into the strategy on more than half the holes.

The Lost City course requires you to use every club in your bag, and negotiate uphill and downhill shots with equal proficiency. A magnificent design.

<Day 4 ~ Gary Player Country Club

Thick kikuyu rough and impenetrable bush punishes the wayward shot, so come armed with a good swing and a better brain. The course is blessed with superb greens that have recently been rebuilt and modernized with the bunkers.
image

Your Itinerary

The legendary Gary Player, whose name is synonymous with golf not only in South Africa but globally, designed this beast of a course. It’s a fair beast, but there are obstacles sprinkled throughout. The kikuyu fairways are exceptional yet it’s the slick, heavily sloped bentgrass greens that are the signature. The course is rather flat, though it winds across lakes and through bush and the ninth hole, a diabolical par-5 is one that visitors will not soon forget.

On the par-four eighth, tee and green sit on opposing bluffs; big hitters can attempt an all-or-nothing carry with the hope of having an easy wedge in, or play it safe by bailing out left and facing a much longer approach.

Humewood image

Enamored with the Old Course at St. Andrews, the architect Colonel S.V. Hotchkin set out to emulate the links layout when hired in 1929 to design Humewood. The Colonel put a twist on the familiar links of the British Isles, however, straying from the nine holes out, nine holes in routing and angling holes in every direction. This creates a fascinating experience atop the sand dunes of Algoa Bay, as golfers battle cross breezes, avoiding steep-faced bunkers and maneuvering along the firm turf.
St Francis Links image

St. Francis Links leaves an indelible impression on a seasoned golfer. For starters, the facility has incredible practice grounds available to golfers on the day of their round. Furthermore, the legend Jack Nicklaus utilized the existing rolling terrain and devised excellent routing, shaping holes in many different directions to bear the brunt of the everpresent wind. No. 14 is a terrific par-3, nicknamed ‘Get Up!’ That’s advice to hit enough club on this par-3 over water and sand that measures between 122 and 182 yards.

It is the Host course of the 2003 Presidents Cup, 2005 Women's World Cup and 2006 South African Open along with other European Tour events. 


Pinnacle Point image

The renowned architect Peter Matkovich put it best, describing the property at Pinnacle Point by saying, ‘this is the most dramatic golf course site I’ve ever encountered anywhere in the world.’ It’s difficult to argue with his assessment. Set high above the Indian Ocean, providing sensational, breathtaking views of the crystal blue water from across the course, this is truly a magnificent and memorable design. In all seven holes run parallel to the ocean shore. The home hole is a fierce risk-reward par-5.
