Play across the greens and fairways of Gauteng's finest, along with the scenic spoils of the Sun City Resort's topnotch courses.
Guests are met upon arrival at O R Tambo International by an African Sky guide and transferred to their accommodation on a Tuscan-style estate on the outskirts of Pretoria East. After some time for freshening up, we head to the nearby Silver Lakes Golf Course for the first round of your South African golf tour. Peppered with palm trees and beautifully kept man-made lakes, Silver Lakes Golf Course was designed by Peter Matkovich and offers a gratifying game of golf in Gauteng. The tour returns to your overnight accommodation in the late afternoon.
The morning is dedicated to playing the championship-style East Course of the Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club. Almost 130 years old, the course has hosted the South African Open seven times and is also home to the annual Joburg Open. The signature 10th and 11th holes are known for being the longest back-to-back par fours. Following your round on this historic Gauteng golf course, the tour returns to Pretoria where the afternoon is spent at leisure.
Today we leave the city behind and head northwest toward the Big Five-bearing bushveld of the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, where guests will enjoy a game drive in this striking wilderness area. Pilanesberg is located inside the crater of an ancient volcano which erupted millions of years ago. Once the magma solidified, the area formed rather eye-catching rolling hills. After the game drive, the tour continues on to the Sun City Resort, where guests will be checked in to their overnight accommodations and may then explore the sprawling resort at their leisure.
Gary Player has lent his design prowess to more than 325 courses across five continents, but only this particular course bears his name. Sun City’s prestigious Gary Player Golf Course hosts the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge and tests the abilities of all levels of golfers. Following an engaging round of the gentleman’s game on this renowned course, your afternoon is free to indulge in Sun City’s many entertainment options. The Valley of Waves hosts an enormous wave pool and an exciting splash of waterslides, while the casino offers every imaginable venture to try your luck on. The more leisurely inclined may opt for a pampering spa treatment or simply relax poolside.
After breakfast your Sun City golf tour heads over to the Lost City Golf Course, named for the imposing Palace of the Lost City which forms its handsome backdrop. The Lost City Golf Course boasts 28 000 square meters of water features and a small host of Nile crocodiles. The desert-style course offers a very unique South African golf experience.
