Golf game in Kruger Park


The Skukuza golf course was built in 1972, originally for Skukuza personnel. These days it is open to public and highly recommend for the sheer thrill of hitting a golf ball in the wild.


The Skukuza golf course is situated on the outskirts of Skukuza restcamp, next too the Skukuza village. It is a 72 par, 9 hole, 18 tee course, tee off times are between 7.00 am and 11.00 Sunday – Friday.


As the course is unfenced, animals are often seen roaming along the course. Regular animals sightings include Impala, warthog, birdlife and even hippos and crocodiles in the surrounding water. Lions, leopard and the like have also been spotted and when you arrive be sure to look at the photos in the office of various kills that have been made by predators on the greens itself. A few months back there was great excitement when the ever elusive pangolin made an appearance on one of the holes.


There is a full bar facially along with a small kitchen which serves light lunches and breakfast to the locals and public. Standard dress code of a golf course applies, and caddies, carts and clubs are for hire.


The signature hole, the 9th hole, you play over Lake Panic back towards the clubhouse. And although throughout the course there are no bunkers, there are many trees, animals, bodies of water and exciting birdlife that will keep you on your toes.


The course is designed for all levels of golfers and is a great way to watch animals while having a game of golf.


So if you find yourself staying at Skukuza and feel like a break from the car, why not head down to Skukuza Golf course and enjoy the thrill of the open bush and the excitement of a game of golf.
