I have not played there but have it on reasonable authority that the water hazards could cost ya and arm and a leg. :tongue:

Its one course where you try your best to stay on the fairway. No beating about the bush :big_eyes:

Hi Weltenman
I play there a lot - a really wonderful, golf in the wild experience. It is not a "Championship" course but it is well maintained and is suitable for experts and beginners alike. Would definitely recommend it!

Thank you so much everyone for replying, do appreciate it. The family will be in Kruger in July and hoping/thinking about playing there...anybody know if that time is more "dangerous" than summer? I read that Elephants and Buffalo's like to wander more in the day during winter. I am not a big fan of elephants, even when in the relative safety of a car, not sure what I would on foot with only a putter to protect me... :tongue:

I once saw a sweet paper floating in the dam there and totally forgetting that I was in a wild national park, (I mean, this is a manicured golf course after all), I stuck my hand into the water to retrieve the litter ... fortunately for me, I was with folk who DID remember where we were ... there are definitely hippo in that dam, crocs, I am not too sure about.

As a general rule, animals such as elephant, lion and leopard tend to keep out of Skukuza town (and golf course) by day. You will find the odd Impala and Warthog. By night ... well that is another matter entirely.

And again ... no fences ... no guarantees.

I hope I am wrong!
