Skukuza Golf Course - Hole by Hole
The Skukuza Golf Course is a magnificent 9-hole (18-tee) course situated in the world-renowned Kruger National Park on the outskirts of Skukuza Rest Camp. The rich wildlife sanctuary surrounding the golf course is home to the Big Five, a huge variety of birds and countless animals, which all conspire to provide the visitor with a harmonious close-to-nature golfing experience. The golf course was built in 1972 as a recreational facility for the Skukuza personnel, and has now been opened to visitors to the Kruger National Park for the first time.
The course is a Par 72, and is 5831m (6450 yards) for men and 4950m (5480 yards) for women. Since the course is not fenced-in, uninvited spectators are a common sight; hippo, impala, warthog and baboons to mention but a few. The course offers the pleasure of challenge and adventure. The Skukuza Golf Course has no bunkers, although ‘aerial bunkers’ abound because of the many trees found on the course.
