GLENDALE, Cali. – Even though the cold and snow keep most North American golfers from enjoying the fairway during the winter months, why not migrate south of the equator to enjoy better weather and ideal golfing conditions?! At the world-class Leopard Creek Country Club championship course in South Africa, you will be able to leave your coat at home and witness amazing wild animals wandering the grounds while you work on your backswing.
The Leopard Creek golf course is ranked No.1 out of 450 courses in South Africa and continues to hold a place on numerous “Top 100 Golf Courses in the World” lists. This Gary Player-designed course, home to the Alfred Dunhill Championship, is bordered by well-known Kruger National Park and the picturesque Crocodile River. The club is surrounded by bushveld – a subtropical woodland eco-region – meaning you can listen to elephants trumpet, see giraffes saunter by and observe other wild animal behaviors while playing this naturally protected course. While innovative architecture and landscape techniques protect players from surrounding wildlife, that doesn’t mean you won’t have the occasional hippo or crocodile wading in the water hazards!
Leopard Creek is an exclusive course reserved for members only; however, if you book your South Africa trip through award-winning safari outfitter Great Safaris, founder and CEO Dave Herbert will arrange a round as his guest! As a founding member of the Leopard Creek Country Club, Dave is happy to show visitors this magnificent course and the stunning landscape that surrounds it. He will personally arrange tee times and accommodations in the area for you. Even if you’re not a scratch golfer, this is an opportunity to play like a pro and reap the benefits of knowing someone in this elite club.
