What dos one expect from a course in the middle of a big 5 game reserve...? Yes the fairways have been grazed by natural lawnmowers... but that casts no shadow on the fact that this beautiful & unique course with a fun layout (fairway trees instead of bunkers) & excellent greens, beautifully set around a lake which comes equipped with...

It has been my first golf course that I played on when I started playing golf years ago and it will stay my favourite. I must say, even with the horrible dry circumstance in the park, management managed to keep the course in a good condition and easy to enjoy. Staff is always friendly and helpful, feels like coming home... More

We did not play the 9-hole course but had a visit to evaluate their facilities for an eventual next visit. On request we were given a leaflet with some details of the golf course by a friendly lady. Drinks were very good (e.g. white wine) and low cost, especially compared to the prices one can pay in a European golf-club.... More

During a recent visit to the Kruger Park we had a round of 9 on the Skukuza golf course. It was an amazing experience, knowing that you are playing golf in the best game reserve in the world on an unfenced golf course. Proud of myself that I did not loose a ball until the last hole where I bounced... More

This is a must if your are a keen golfer! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The course is well kept and open to the wild life! We saw hippos, crocodile and warthogs and many wild birds among other. What a lovely experience! The food is great at the club house restaurant. Worth it!

Even taking into account that there has been a drought in the area, this was NOT an acceptable course. Apart from the course conditions which were abominable.. the design sometimes was ridiculous... for instance on hole one there is a fairway sloping strongly all the way downhill to water over the whole width... any super drive or second shot of...
