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.

Very beautiful course, fairways were good, greens very soft like a carpet and all round the view was magnificent, really enjoyed the croc pit at hole 13. Had a few baboons and wild hogs around when we were playing. Some awesome and tricky holes to play and overall a challenging course. Great clubhouse overlooking the course.

Visited while staying at Kwa-Maritane. I did not play a round of golf but would love to. Beutiful setting. Using nature to the best. Course lay-out well planned. Beautiful surroundings.

This is the links course at Sun City (as opposed to the groomed Gary Player course). It features one hole with a crocodile-infested water hazard. Very enjoyable, especially if you play both courses to contrast the experience, A must for any golfer during a stay at Sun City.

I love this Golf Course. It has a unique atmosphere, surrounded by the Pilanesberg Game reserve, the second largest extinct Volcano in Africa. There are Baboons and other wildlife walking around which makes for an interesting game of Golf. Good food as well. And of course SUNSHINE. The par 3 over the Crocodile pond is unique.

We visited Sun City for the weekend and my self , our 2 boys and a friend played a 4 ball on Saturday. The course was in fantastic condition and we had a great time on the course. Ended the day with an eagle put on the 18th but had to settle for a birdie.

Excellent course and a test of accuracy and sometimes restraint. Take a spotter, it will save you a number of strokes. Also, the greens are subtle and depending on the pin placements could be a real challenge. The caddies are good and the help with line and pace helped a lot on the greens. I always enjoy the setting of... More
