Leisure time sees you exploring the area at your own pace and tantalising your tastebuds with culinary delights, fine gins, beers and wines for which this country is renowned.

South Africa Golf Tour Roar

A visit to South Africa would not be complete without a wildlife safari and there is no greater private game reserve than Sabi Sand. It is located in the Greater Kruger region with off roading, morning, afternoon and evening game drives, bush walking safaris, birding safaris and brilliant guides travelling in open sided vehicles.

You will be split between two vehicles and head off through the rugged wilderness in search of wildlife. When back at ‘camp’ you can relax and enjoy the facilities on offer with luxury accommodation, private verandahs, main area featuring bar, dining, lounge, camp fire area and swimming pool.

You will soon know what a safari sundowner is all about and want to return soon for another South Africa Golf Tour.

South Africa Golf Tour Top Tips

Dress code is more casual than elsewhere in the world

Clubs, buggies and trolleys for hire everywhere

Road side sellers of second hand balls everywhere

Courses are immaculate with large undulating greens

Long rounds usually five hours plus

Changing facilities in all of the clubs with showers, soap, clean towels etc

Remember to take sunscreen, hat, plenty of water and insect repellent

Do not be surprised if you see the odd animal on the course like baboons and springbok

It is often compulsory to stop after the 9th hole for 10 minutes food and drink break. Refreshments are inexpensive

Chip and running the ball onto fringes is not as easy here

Short rough is tough, don’t be fooled

Fynbos is commonplace – South Africa’s scrub like heather that grows up to 1.5 metres

Long carries off the tee are a feature on all but the traditional courses

Courses are gated and as you drive in, Paul will present your confirmation to ensure a smooth arrival and tee off
