Gary Player Country Club

Sun City Resort, Sun City, 0316, South Africa

The Gary Player Country Club is a testament to golfing grandeur, offering a challenge that’s as rewarding as it is demanding. Stretching an impressive 7105 meters from the championship tees, this course provides a stern test to even the most seasoned golfers. However, its design is such that integrity remains intact even when playing from the intermediate or forward tees, accommodating a range of skill levels. This versatility is enhanced by a layout that does not favor any specific shot shape, making it a fair test for all golfers.

The course is distinguished by its well-groomed kikuyu grass fairways, providing ideal conditions for approach shots. The greens, made of bent grass, are large and undulating, protected by imaginative bunkering.

Beyond the technical aspects, the course is set against a breathtaking backdrop. The views encompass the resort’s four hotels and a tranquil lake, with the surrounding Pilanesberg National Park mountains stirring the spirit. This combination of challenging play and scenic beauty makes the Gary Player Country Club a golfing destination par excellence.
