Skukuza Golf Course is a basic course situated within the wild throes of the Kruger National Park.
Skukuza Golf Course, built within the belly of Kruger National Park, was originally established by the camp’s personnel for recreational purposes. The 9-hole 18-tee course may not be the number one course in the country and bears no lofty accolades, but its unfenced location in this world-renowned reserve sets it apart. Nowhere in the country can the game be enjoyed in such untamed proximity to the African wilderness.
Uninvited spectators frequent the greens and fairways and, as such, players should be extremely cautious. Many peaceful antelope, warthog, zebra and giraffe utilize the Skukuza Golf Course for alternative drinking holes and grazing, but hippo and baboons have also been known to wander across the grounds and guests should keep their distance. Though rare, reports of big cats taking down kills on the course are not unheard of! Every game offers its own unique adventure.
Skukuza is located in one of the most wildlife-rich regions of the Kruger National Park. This wildlife haven lures many visitors, both four-legged and two-legged. Though by far not the most illustrious of South Africa’s golf courses, Skukuza has the unique advantage of running its greens across one of the most renowned wilderness areas in the world.
