Golf Course at Skukuza

Bring along your golf clubs next time you visit the Kruger National Park and enjoy one of the most unique 9-hole golf courses in the world.


The golf course was built in 1972 as a recreational facility for the Skukuza personnel, and is now available to visitors to the Kruger National Park. The Skukuza Golf Course is situated on the outskirts of Skukuza Rest Camp. The rich wildlife sanctuary surrounding the golf course is home to the Big Five, a huge variety of birds and countless animals, which all conspire to provide the visitor with a harmonious close-to-nature golfing experience.

Since the course is not fenced-in, uninvited spectators are a common sight, hippo, impala, warthog and baboons to mention but a few. The Skukuza Golf Course has no bunkers, although ‘aerial bunkers’ abound because of the many trees found on the course.

Tee-off times are available for visitors in the mornings between 07:00 and 11:00 from Sunday to Friday. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Saturdays are Club Days for our members or a Sponsor’s Day and it’s a Two Field-Morning and Afternoon. It’s a Shotgun Start and the morning field is 06:30 for 07:00, the afternoon field is 12:00 for 12:30 in summer and half an hour earlier in winter. No late entries are accepted.

An indemnity form must be completed prior to playing. Standard golf dress code applies. Caddies are normally available on weekends but we do not make bookings for caddies. Motorised Golf Carts and Pull Carts are available for hire. Light refreshments and full bar facility daily.

The Skukuza Golf Course is designed for all levels of golfers.
