Champagne Sports Resort rolls across the green slopes of the Drakensberg.
Champagne Sports Resort Golf Course is certainly defined by its spectacular location, nestled as it is in the dramatic Champagne Valley with its overwhelming views of the Drakensberg Mountain range. Designed by professional golfer Hugh Baiocchi, the sprawling kikuyu fairways and immaculate bent greens offer satisfying playability for every class of golfer. The championship parklands-style 18 holes stretch over 6200m beneath the breathtaking basalt facade of Champagne Castle.
The course’s 19th hole is a local favorite, an award-winning pub that frequently enjoy a Top 5 position in South Africa. With its striking views of the Drakensberg, this perch is ideal for post-round socializing and unwinding. The indoor fireplace creates a wonderfully cozy atmosphere in the winter months.
From the imposing beauty of the mountains and marshy wetlands to the prolific birdlife and roaming blesbok, Champagne Sports Resort golf course is one of the most scenic in the country. The resort offers many additional leisure activities for holidaymakers, including trout and bass fishing, boules, mountain biking, squash and tennis, ensuring an all-round compelling getaway. The scenic region boasts many nearby attractions to complement your tour as well, including horse riding, falcon encounters, historic battlefields and, of course, hiking in the majestic Drakensberg.
