Skukuza Golf Course is a MUST DO for all golfers. Not often that one gets to tee-off with hippo's grunting within 10 meters of you, or playing over a large expanse of water only to putt with a crocodile watching you . . . . . . wart-hogs grunting and feeding on the Fairways and monkeys watching your golf-ball with...

Lions at a kill brougjt us to the door of the club house. So we decided to stop and look around. First impressions are of noisy staff sitting everywhere on the lawns. No one seemed interested in service standards or guest experience. Tables and chairs dates back 30 years, the female manager that was on is clearly not interested in... More

What a lovely and scenic course... the bush sounds and animals present is enough to get the adrenaline pumping... the course isn't fenced off from the rest of the park so dangerous animals might be encountered. Greens and course are fair, given it's a holiday course in the middle of the game park! Food can improve a bit, all and... More

We had breakfast at the Golf Course restaurant. The service was very bad. We had to help put the tablecloth on the table. We waited 40 minutes for the breakfast and drinks. Coffee was cold. Breakfast OK. I had to take my eggs back as it was raw.

This golf club is a 9 hole course with two different tees. The condition of the course was excellent and the wildlife astounding.. Clubhouse was super with a great breakfast, and lovely helpful staff. you must complete an indemnity before being allowed to play as there are no fences and you are playing within the natural habitat of the Kruger...

What dos one expect from a course in the middle of a big 5 game reserve...? Yes the fairways have been grazed by natural lawnmowers... but that casts no shadow on the fact that this beautiful & unique course with a fun layout (fairway trees instead of bunkers) & excellent greens, beautifully set around a lake which comes equipped with...

It has been my first golf course that I played on when I started playing golf years ago and it will stay my favourite. I must say, even with the horrible dry circumstance in the park, management managed to keep the course in a good condition and easy to enjoy. Staff is always friendly and helpful, feels like coming home... More

We did not play the 9-hole course but had a visit to evaluate their facilities for an eventual next visit. On request we were given a leaflet with some details of the golf course by a friendly lady. Drinks were very good (e.g. white wine) and low cost, especially compared to the prices one can pay in a European golf-club.... More
