It is with great pleasure to announce the best golf courses in South Africa that have secured positions in this year’s top 100 golf course ranking as follows;
19. The Links Course at Fancourt, South Africa
Sculpted into what Gary Player has described as his greatest feat as a designer, The Links is the golfing hallmark of the Fancourt estate. Featuring a dune-style landscape, the course is the collaborative handiwork of golfing icon Gary Player, course designer Phil Jacobs, and Fancourt’s owner Dr. Hasso Plattner.
26. Leopard Creek Country Club, South Africa
On the banks of the aptly-named Crocodile River, at the gate to the Kruger National park, lays this Gary Player design. The par-5 13th hole is one of the most memorable experiences here, right on the edge of the river (safely above water level), it offers amazing views of both the river and park surrounding.
28. East Championship Course at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club, South Africa
Royal Johannesburg & Kensington has hosted just about any Championship worth mentioning in South Africa, including nine SA Open Championships and 11 Johannesburg.
