The Lost City Golf Course was designed by famed South African golfing figure, Gary Player. This spectacular par-72 course is a cart course, complete with a state-of-the-art clubhouse, and is a short stroll from The Palace of the Lost City. It features a water hazard of 20 live Nile crocodiles on the 13th hole and offers facilities such as a driving range, and a fully equipped golf Pro Shop.

Very well manicured course, challenging for both the average and low handicap golfer. Would definitely play this one before the other course at the resort. Staff are friendly and helpful What more could you want ?

Had a great couple of rounds on the Lost City Golf Course. A friendly layout and good fun. Saw lots of animals including Elephants on the adjacent game reserve, crocodiles of course and a big Impala Buck. Really enjoyed it.

Good course with some interesting holes and beautiful scenery. Quite expensive but the fee includes buggy and half way house food.

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
