I hadn't played the Lost City course for about five years as we always play Gary Player CC when we are at Sun City. The last time I played Lost City I told myself never to play here again and memory being what it is, I forgot what I had told myself. The course is very short and has lots... More

A less challenging course than the gary player but still a great course. You need to take a buggy and it's worth having a caddie spotter, at least one for four ball. Some great features like crocs in the water trap on 13

Although I did not play the course I walked a few holes with my wife.It certainly has amazing views and looking back to the Clubhouse is surreal. The staff were all extremely friendly and the pro shop well stocked. Brought some souvenirs and gave then to some of my mates when we got home.

Truly a MUST DO experience for any avid golfer! Had an unforgettable round of golf overlooking many beautiful settings that South Africa had to offer. Baboons watching you tee off, and crocodiles lazing in the river below on the 13th are just some of my many highlights of this world class golf course.

This course is in peak condition. There was absolutely nothing to fault. From the well marked T-boxes to the well manicured fairways and smooth-like-carpet putting greens. The service at the half way was great. They took our order at the 17th hole so that our food was warm and ready when we got there. After the golf, our clubs were... More

One of my all time favorite courses. The course condition is always amazing and the staff most accommodating. Had a good day out despite my bad game. Will make sure to play there when ever I can.
