The Best Golf Courses to Play Tour is jam packed with fun and excitement to make the most of your golf holiday in South Africa. But be prepared to feel star-struck!
Your tour starts on an epic note where you stay in the richest square mile in Africa, Sandton. From here you can walk down to Nelson Mandela Square to see the 6m/20ft high statue in memory of our beloved uTata (means father of a nation).
Your golf rounds will secure quite a few bucket list ticks off your list. You get to walk the same fairways and putt on the same greens as few golf legends. Rory McIlroy who was in a playoff for the SA Open and just lost against Greame Storm on Glendower Golf Club in 2017. Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia on the Gary Player Country Club in 2018 taking part in the Nedbank Golf Challenge where they took 1 st and 2 nd place respectively. Chase Koepka, who’s big brother is Brooks, was also seen at the SA Open in 2018 at Glendower and these are only a handful of golf celebs mentioned.
The Dimension Data Pro-Am is an annual Sunshine Tour event held at Fancourt Golf Resort in the Garden Route. It is one of the biggest events of its kind and was first hosted at Sun City where Mark McNulty, Nick Price, Scott Dunlap, Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke were the first winners, in that order. In 2010 the event moved to Fancourt where players like Paul Lawrie, Louis Oosthuisen, Branden Grace, Justin Hicks and Daniel Brooks took part in the event.
Now add to this a Big 5 Safari in the South African Bush and you have an epic golf holiday with bragging rights for life!
