The Gary Player Country Club tests the grit of many a fine golfer. This Sun City golf course was designed by South African golf legend, Gary Player.
Gary Player Country Club Golf Course
The Gary Player Country Club Golf Course is acknowledged as a difficult and demanding course
. Since 1981 it has been home to the Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Challenge. This Sun City golf course requires stamina and accuracy from players.
The comparatively flat nature of the golf course
is misleading - water hazards, cunningly sited bunkers and pins hidden away on kidney shaped greens makes up for the lack of gradient.
Off the back markers the course measures over 7 000 metres,
which makes it one of the longest in the world. But a variety of tees make it possible to shorten the course and render playable for all levels of golfers.
With pristine perfect kikuyu fairways and excellent bent grass
greens, the course is kept in perfect condition all year round.
A feature hole? Well they're all good at this golf course in South Africa, but for risk and reward the stand-out is the 9th.
Play this par 5 from the forward tees and then have a go for the island green with your second and thrill to the challenge of this superb test of golf in South Africa.
