Visit Lim­popo for the ul­ti­mate African golf and sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence at Leg­end Golf & Sa­fari Re­sort, Ze­bula Golf Es­tate & Spa, Eupho­ria Golf Es­tate & Hy­dro, El­e­ments Pri­vate Golf Re­serve, Koro Creek Golf Es­tate and Hans Meren­sky, to name a few.

LEG­END GOLF HANS MEREN­SKY SA­FARI RE­SORT

Leg­end Golf & Sa­fari Re­sort – also known as the “home of the ex­treme 19th” – is one of the world’s most renowned re­sorts. This unique leisure des­ti­na­tion wel­comes all trav­ellers, whether it be for a hol­i­day get­away, busi­ness trip, golf or sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence.

It is home to the unique “world-in-one” sig­na­ture course, where each of the 18 holes has been de­signed by a world golf­ing leg­end. In ad­di­tion, you can take the chal­lenge of the world-fa­mous ex­treme 19th – only ac­ces­si­ble by he­li­copter!

ZE­BULA GOLF ES­TATE

South African golf es­tates abound, but none can match Ze­bula – a stun­ning and unique life­style des­ti­na­tion a mere two hours’ drive north of Jo­han­nes­burg in the mag­nif­i­cent malaria-free Water­berg re­gion of Lim­popo. Lo­cated on 1 600 hectares of pris­tine bushveld in the shadow of the Water­berg moun­tains, Ze­bula com­mands a most spec­tac­u­lar set­ting. Un­du­lat­ing, in­dige­nous treecov­ered hills and wide-open grass­lands are fre­quently punc­tu­ated with dams and wa­ter holes – a di­verse land­scape that sup­ports a wide va­ri­ety of game, birds and small wildlife.

EUPHO­RIA GOLF ES­TATE

Eupho­ria Golf Es­tate & Hy­dro is set in the beau­ti­ful Water­berg moun­tain range in Lim­popo and is only two hours’ drive from Jo­han­nes­burg. Eupho­ria is unique for two rea­sons: it hap­pens to have been An­nika Soren­stam’s first sig­na­ture course and it is also the first course in South Africa to be de­signed by the for­mi­da­ble European Golf De­sign Com­pany, that has lived up to its rep­u­ta­tion and skill­fully cre­ated a golf­ing mas­ter­piece that is in per­fect har­mony with its sur­round­ings.

EL­E­MENTS PRI­VATE GOLF RE­SERVE

El­e­ments Pri­vate Golf Re­serve is lo­cated in an area that can only be de­scribed as ruggedly hand­some, thanks to the com­bi­na­tion of Water­berg hills, bushveld and the flour­ish­ing African wildlife. All this is just 90 min­utes’ drive north of Pre­to­ria.

El­e­ments is not just the emer­ald of the north, the course is highly re­garded through­out the coun­try. In fact – and thanks in no small part to Peter Matkovich’s ex­quis­ite de­sign – the El­e­ments Pri­vate Golf Re­serve has con­sis­tently been rated in the top 20 golf cour­ses of South Africa for the past 10 years.

KORO CREEK BUSHVELD GOLF ES­TATE

Lo­cated on the out­skirts of the lush Lim­popo town of Modi­molle, the Koro Creek Bushveld Golf Course finds it­self oc­cu­py­ing some of the finest land­scape the South African bushveld has to of­fer. Koro Creek Golf Course is an­other bushveld won­der of a course that brings to­gether fam­ily, golf and wildlife and of­fers the whole ex­pe­ri­ence in the form of a na­ture re­serve.

Be­ing just 90 min­utes north of Pre­to­ria, Koro Creek pro­vides the per­fect get­away golf­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for you and your fam­ily.

Lo­cated just out­side Pha­l­aborwa and bor­der­ing the Kruger National Park, the Hans Meren­sky Golf Course is an an­other de­light of a course to have emerged from the rich lands of Lim­popo.

The leg­endary Bob Grims­dell de­signed this par 72 cham­pi­onship course with his usual flair. The course is a vis­ual mas­ter­piece and the res­i­dent wildlife of gi­raffes, hip­pos and croc­o­diles adds a sa­fari el­e­ment.
