Wingate Park is an established golf course set in the leafy suburbs of Pretoria, South Africa's capital city.
One of Pretoria’s older courses, Wingate Park Golf Course bears a leafy load of veteran woods and mature gardens freckled with flowers. The parklands course stretches across 6 778m of the capital’s eastern suburbs and snakes between sprightly running waterways and trying bunkers. Warped pine trees and arrow-up cypresses line well-groomed greens and fairways.
Named after Brigadier Orde-Wingate of Burma, Wingate Park Golf Course hosted the SA Amateur Championship in 2005 and has also played host to the South African Masters. The course’s signature hole is the par-five dogleg 18th. The country club offers additional recreational facilities, including a bowling club, tennis club and a running club. Though originally established as a Jewish club, Wingate has perpetually maintained an ethos that, regardless of creed or position, membership is open to everyone.
A round of golf at Wingate Park can easily be combined with a city tour of Pretoria. South Africa’s capital city offers a host of activities for discerning visitors, like the historic Union Buildings that serve as the seat of the presidency, or the Cullinan Diamond Mine, where the world’s largest diamond was discovered in 1905. African Sky provides private guided services to all the area’s most exciting attractions.
