Pecanwood Golf Course overlooks the vast blue expanse of Hartbeespoort Dam in the rolling hills of the Magaliesberg and maintains a rank of prestige as a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Within half an hour’s drive of Pretoria and Johannesburg, the picturesque potpourri of sandy bunkers and lustrous fountains transports players to a world-class golfing destination. Dazzlingly green kikuyu fairways and Crenshaw Bent grass greens dress the manicured grounds.
Pecanwood boasts many additional facilities for leisure-seeking visitors, such as an in-house spa, a boat club and tennis academy. The course’s picturesque location and championship-style play draws many enthusiastic callers, both locally and abroad. Upon its opening in 1998, it was voted the best new course of the year by Golf Digest magazine. Pecanwood Golf Course offers satisfying play for golf greenies and pro-swingers alike.
The Magaliesberg is home to an incredible diversity of bird species, and a round on Pecanwood will bring birding enthusiasts up close to a colorful chorus. Though essentially a flat course, the bunkers, high mounds and strategically placed water hazards will ensure that even the most seasoned golfers are still presented with challenging play. The striking water features, like the 12m high water fountain and inland lake on the third hole, contribute to a truly scenic game.
