Description

South Africa is the world's most unique destination for golf lovers. Surrounded by some of golf's most idyllic scenery, this five-night South Africa golf getaway includes a round of golf on two of the best courses in the country; both ranked amongst the world's best.

Boasting the ideal climate and the most striking scenery, it is clear why South Africa is a primary golfing destination for enthusiasts of the sport the world over. In terms of variety, there are over 450 courses throughout this vast and beautiful landscape, and as a measure of the quality of the courses in this country, it should be noted that South Africa will be hosting eight European Tour events in 2014. As well as providing unique surroundings in which to ply your trade over 18 holes, South Africa is also home to a plethora of wonderful food and indigenous fine wines; making it a great all-round destination for a getaway of golfing indulgence.

We will be inviting you to play at both Leopard Creek Country Club, and Durban Country Club to give you a chance to experience two of the most highly rated courses in the country. Both courses are consistently rank amongst the top five best playing surfaces in the country, and amongst the best in the world, with Golf Magazine USA recently ranking both amongst the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World. This package gives you the chance to experience the very best golf courses that South Africa has to offer.

This break is designed to fly into Kruger Mpumalanga Airport and to fly out of Durban International Airport.

Day One

This itinerary is designed to start when you land at Kruger Mpumalanga Airport. Upon arrival, you will be met by a driver, and transported by private vehicle to your accommodation, which will be situated in and around the area of Leopard Creek, around 40 miles away from the airport. You will be staying at one of Leopard Creek’s beautiful partner lodges, which are situated at various locations near the course and promise stylish luxury accommodation. The exact lodge you will be staying in depends on which dates you travel, but rest assured they will always be of the highest standard.

Day Two

The second day of your trip gives the opportunity to play a round of golf at South Africa's leading course, Leopard Creek. Otherwise known as the ‘Wild Thing’, this course is situated on the fringes of the Kruger National Park, one of the biggest wildlife reserves in the world. With a first class championship course and the possibility of meeting some African wildlife, a round at Leopard Creek truly promises an experience to remember. The course is home to an immaculate 18 hole golf course with incredible manicured fairways and greens, filled with various challenges and features. You will be able to enjoy stunning views across Crocodile River, looking out over the Krueger National Park at various points throughout your round. A pure golfer's paradise, Leopard Creek provides an exceptional experience that is, in short, a box that every golfer should tick.

Day Three

Kruger National Park is one of the world’s leading wildlife parks and home to one of the most beautiful and varied ecosystems on the planet. We have included a full day safari excursion as a part of this package; providing the full Kruger experience in a single day, whilst maintaining a relaxed pace. You will experience South Africa’s natural beauty, capture boastful wildlife photographs and have amazing African wildlife encounters. With so much on offer, a full day Kruger Park safari is the best way to experience the park if you have limited time and want to learn more about the park from a knowledgeable guide.

Day Four

The day starts with travel from your accommodation near Kruger National Park to a five-star hotel in Durban, a beautiful coastal city, which is also home to some of the most highly rated golf courses in the country. We will organise your domestic flights between both locations, with full details to be provided on your personalised itinerary after booking. After giving you time to familiarise yourself with the city, you are invited for dinner at 9th Avenue Bistro, one of the city’s best restaurants, to enjoy a delightful seven-course tasting menu. This restaurant has been presented with an American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award, and voted the best restaurant in the city by the Durban Chamber of Tourism and Commerce. This establishment strives to serve fresh and creative cuisine with a real emphasis on locally sourced seasonal ingredients; dishes include mouth-watering Cajun pork belly, fresh line fish and slow roasted shoulder of lamb.

Day Five

For the penultimate day of your trip you are invited to play a round of golf at the illustrious Durban Country Club. Established in 1922, Durban Country Club has a proud history that spans back almost 90 years and is a popular club amongst both golf enthusiasts and Durban residents alike. Aside from being built upon large sand dunes, defining characteristics of Durban Country Club include the major fluctuations in the fairways, and the almost-tropical vegetation that it always ready to punish wayward shots. As a result, Durban Country Club is generally regarded as a shot makers' course, where players are forced to think their way around the course, and on which using a driver off the tee can sometimes be to your own detriment, particularly on some of the early holes where the fairways are especially unforgiving.

Day Six

On the final day of your trip you will be chauffeured from your hotel to Durban International Airport, where you can lament at the conclusion of your holiday and reflect on what will be one of your most treasured golfing memories.
