I notice that there are no postings about the Skukuza Golf club since about August 2012. Is this due to flood damage, the course being closed to the general public or what? Just interested as we will be there in August this year. :hmz:

I am pretty sure all is perfectly fine with the golf club Impyim, I think many folk don't realise one can go there for light meals etc therefore it doesn't get mentioned too much. :thumbs_up:

Thanks for letting me know that its still open. When we in Kruger in 2008 we didn't actually think the meals in the restaurants was very good. So the fact that there is a restaurant at the Golf Club is welcome news . Also we actually don't play much golf, but are very keen birders, and we often go walking down our golf course (in Western Australia) looking for birds. As there is nowhere else in Kruger that we arent allowed out of our vehicles (other than camps, picnic spots, and comfort stops) we thought about hiring a buggy and doing a spot of birding on the golf course (maybe hit the ball around a bit as well).
Do you think this is a possibility. :hmz:

Impyim, I stand to be corrected, as I am also not a golfer but I don't think they have any buggy's, I presume you are referring to golf carts? :?
As its only a 9 hole course they are not really needed, but its lovely to sit at the club and watch the birds and often animals wandering/flying around.

Edit* Found something a few pages back!

My wife is disabled and unable to walk the course with me and it would be great experience for us both if we could hire a buggy.

As far as I know, there are a few.... by few I mean 4 or something if I remember correctly...

It is really exhilarating to play a round of golf there. Unfortunately, I hit an Impala-in-one instead of a hole-in-one.

I did the same Rooies - the embarrassing thing was that the poor bugger was minding his own business about 30 metres off the fairway........

Can one hire clubs or does one have to bring one's own?

I have often thought I would like to have a bash (literally) some time as a non golfer.

They do have a few odd clubs available to hire but more modern clubs make the game a lot easier!
Maybe ok if you just want to enjoy being out on the course in Kruger, with game wandering around, good birds and many trees labelled!

I was under the impression that the golf club was not accessible to the general public as it is on a no-entry road .... ?

You should try it, it's fun and not difficult. As long as the course is not busy, you can take the whole day to
play. And you don't need bag full of clubs, just a few irons and a putter.

As mentioned elsewhere I played at Skukuza a couple of weeks ago, and it really is a wonderful experience. The birdlife is awesome, and we even had mating hippos about 15m from us on the 10th tee. There are a lot of animals on the course too, and the locals we played with said that the lions are actually seen fairly often.

There are definitely golf carts for hire, and the food at the restaurant is very good. Well worth a day out.

As for the clubs BB: give me a shout next time you are around, and I'll bring an extra set for you, and show you the way around the course. I have not seen you for a while, but I reckon we might be better off getting two golf carts..... :whistle: :twisted:

Jb72, did you have to wait for the hippos, or did they wave you through?
