Mpumalanga Golf Courses
Mpumalanga is one of the most popular provinces in South Africa. The Western Cape may reign supreme with regards to sheer volume of tourists, but Mpumalanga is without doubt the most picturesque province in South Africa, offering up the best game viewing, some of the best natural features and unsurprisingly some of the finest golf courses in the country.
A famous landmark around the world is the Kruger National Park, one of the largest national parks on the planet. Holding the all big five game animals, the Kruger draws millions of visitors annually in search of adventure in the wild African bush. What many visitors might miss out on is some of the magical Mpumalanga golf courses.
Mpumalanga is home to South Africa’s best course for several years, Leopard Creek Golf Club. This private course plays host annually to the Alfred Dunhill Invitational. This European Tour co-sanctioned event with South Africa’s Sunshine Tour is one of the most lucrative on the continent.
Other Mpumalanga golf courses worthy of a visit include:
Sabi River Sun
Nelspruit Golf Club
Mpumalanga is a short drive east of Gauteng and would make the ideal holiday destination for the family of a golfer, or a golfing family. Can you imagine anything better than a game drive at dawn, 18 holes on a championship course, followed by sundowners overlooking the African bushveld?
