Highland Gate Golf Course - breathtaking scenery
Highland Gate is a beautiful 18 hole course set amongst some of the most scenic mountainous terrain in Mpumalanga. It's a fairly recent course and surely ranks as one of South Africa's finest!
The course is challenging, the fairways are pristine and the greens like carpets. After your round, enjoy the lovely clubhouse and relax with a drink and a delicious bite to eat.
Highland Gate is an Ernie Els signature course, here's what he has to say.
"When golfers say they were torn between hitting their next shot and pausing to take a photo of the golf course or the surrounding scenery, you know it has to be a very special place! Highland Gate is definitely that kind of place".
- Ernie Els

Kambaku Golf Club - in the wildest corner of South Africa
White River Country Club boasted a beautifully maintained 18 hole championship course a short 25 minute drive from Nelspruit where our accommodation is based.

Surely as a venue, Kambaku Golf Club in the small border town of Komatipoort has to be one of the most exciting, from a wildlife point of view, courses in the country! In fact Kambaku is rated in the top five nine hole courses in South Africa!
Kambaku was originally a community driven project, it has since grown to be a popular and respected delightful course. Kambaku is nestled along the banks of the Crocodile River overlooking Kruger National Park, don't be surprised to see elephants, buffalo even lions while you stroll down the fairway - don't stress, there's a fence between you and the wildlife!
An hour and 20 minutes drive from Nelspruit will have you arriving at this beautiful course which is actually just a few minutes from the Mozambique border. The clubhouse with it's extended viewing deck is well catered for and has magnificent views across the Crocodile River into Kruger National Park where a keen eye will be guaranteed to spot some wildlife, it's an ideal location to enjoy a cold beverage and take in the view!
Skukuza Golf Club - located in Kruger National Park
The wildest course in Africa
kruger national park
The world famous Kruger National Park, sprawling a wilderness area as big as Wales is a paradise for wildlife. Nestled in the dense sub-tropical bush is one of Africa's hidden away gems - the Skukuza Golf Club. Although the course is a nine hole, alternative tee-box placements allow guests to enjoy 18 holes too.
Part of your intinerary on our tours includes this course. It combines an afternoon "Big 5" game drive in an open safari vehicle in the Kruger National Park and an overnight in comfortable en-suite accommodation with a further early morning game drive before your round of golf.
The course has it's own unique challenges, you may have to retreat to allow a herd of elephants to cross the fairway, call a ranger to chase away the lions or fill in the divots made by large animals during the night! As you enjoy the course you're almost guaranteed to be accompanied by warthogs, monkeys, impala and keep a close lookout for hippos and crocodiles in the water hazards!
The golf club is 5 minutes from your overnight accommodation at Skukuza Rest Camp. The clubhouse provides great snacks and ice cold drinks where you can relax and watch your colleagues chip a lazy 8 iron across the water to the ninth green or simply just take in the sights and sounds of the African bush.
