The Gary Player Golf Course needs no introduction. This world-renowned course was designed by Gary Player, and is the home of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, now part of the European Tour Race to Dubai. This picturesque 18 hole, par 72 walking course is surrounded by a 5km scenic running trail. Since its opening in 1979, the course has been acknowledged as South Africa's premier championship test of golf. The home of the Nedbank Golf Challenge since 1981, this immaculately groomed layout has received rave reviews from the world's top golfers, who agree that it is both demanding and fair. This course has been consistently rated as one of the best in South Africa, and compares with the best in the world. The first course in South Africa to be constructed to stringent USGA specifications, this layout is famed for its length (over 7000 metres from the championship tees), its dramatic backdrops of the Pilanesberg Mountains, and its spectacular indigenous vegetation that flanks the fairways. The first facility in South Africa to be built with multiple tees, the course can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels of skill, but even from the forward tees it remains a challenge. A distinguishing feature of the course is its greens complexes which allows for interesting pin positions on the clover-shaped putting surfaces protected by strategically placed bunkers.

Went there for the Nedbank Golf Challenge, the club staff are super friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. The TV screens mounted in the clubhouse allows you to watch the golf from air-conditioned clubhouse

The course was in fantastic condition and we were very lucky as we finished our round in pleasant weather and just before the rain started. Course is a real test of golf and expect to play at least 5 over your handicap. Quality of caddies...More

We hired buggies which insisted we were driving on the fairway when, in fact, we never once left the cart path. The system would shut down and we would have to push the buggy to a location that recognised the "allow to drive" signal. We...More

I am a high handicapper but still enjoyed this course. Having a caddie helps greatly with their local knowledge and ability to suggest club selection after just two holes. My caddie, Lucas, a10 handicapper must have been a little frustrated watching my golf!! He could...More

A very challenging course to play for the average golfer, especially after 3 weeks if rain. In fact, even low handicappers would have battled to play the semi rough - the ball literally disappeared. Halfway house - which is included in the steep green fee...More
