Golfing in Skukuza
Kruger National Park
The Skukuza Golf Course is a magnificent 9-hole (18-tee) course situated in the world-renowned
Kruger National Park 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. The golf
course was built in 1972 as a recreational facility for the Skukuza personnel, and has now been
opened to visitors to the Kruger National Park for the first time.
The course is a Par 72, and is 5950m (6450 yards) for men and 5059m (5480 yards) for women. Since
the course is not fenced-in, uninvited spectators are a common sight; hippo, impala, warthog and
baboons to mention but a few. The course offers the pleasure of challenge and adventure. For example
#2, Par 3, has water on the left and to the back of the green. The signature hole #9, Par 3 of about
150m is played across Lake Panic. The Skukuza Golf Course has no bunkers, although Ďaerial bunkersí
abound because of the many trees found on the course.
