Your lodge is located on the golf course, so no need for a car today!

Today, golf at White River Golf Course, adjacent to your lodge.  The White River Country Club has an 18-hole championship golf course set amongst picturesque plantations on the banks of the White River. The existing 9-hole golf course at White River was completely revamped into a new and exciting 18-hole layout. Gary Player and Reg Taylor played a part in the re-design, and the golf course can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels. The river runs through the parkland course, and the abundance of water and forests provides a beautiful setting for golf, and also a few interesting challenges. After golf, explore the area which has so much to offer visitors! Your hotel will be able to assist with booking of optional tours of the area.

A short drive from your lodge brings you to Sabie River Golf Course. A challenging 18 hole championship course awaits you on the bank of the infamous Sabie River. This is the perfect setting for golf and a year round tropical climate ensures excellent course condition.  The course is flanked on one side by the Sabi River and there are numerous water-hazards on the remainder of the course. Most of these hazards include the local Hippo communities which the course is most famous for. Although not long, it is a fantastic challenge and a “thinking man’s course”.

Today will probably be the highlight of your golfing holiday:  18 holes at the legendary Leopard Creek Golf Course.  Innovative architectural and landscaping techniques ensure that the Leopard Creek golf course and living areas are naturally protected from animals, while lakes and small streams have been diverted through the development to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies. Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek, for much of the water is home to the magnificent creatures for which the river is named, crocodiles. Extensive use has been made of water features and sightings of crocodile, hippo, antelope, buffalo and wild boar are commonplace, either on the course itself or in or next to the river running alongside several holes.

The 505 meter par-five 13th is one of Leopard Creek's most memorable holes. Here the green is right on the edge of the Crocodile River but 32 meters above the level of the water, offering magnificent views up the river and into the Kruger Park.  Gary Player is especially proud of the par-five 18th with its island green and the par-four 9th with its peninsula green jutting out of the same body of water.
