The golf course at the Gary Player Country
Club, since its opening in 1979, has been acknowledged as South
Africa's premier championship test of golf.
The home of the Nedbank Golf Challenge since 1981, this
immaculately groomed layout has received rave reviews from the
world's top golfers, who agree that it is both demanding and fair.
This course has been consistently rated as the best in South
Africa, and compares with the best in the world.
The first course in South Africa to be constructed to stringent
USGA specifications, this layout is famed for its length (over 7000
metres from the championship tees), its dramatic backdrops of the
Pilanesberg Mountains, and its spectacular indigenous vegetation
that flanks the fairways.
The first facility in South Africa to be built with multiple
tees, the course can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels of skill,
but even from the forward tees it remains a challenge. A
distinguishing feature of the course is its greens complexes which
allows for interesting pin positions on the clover-shaped putting
surfaces protected by strategically placed bunkers.
