The Leopard Creek Golf Course South Africa’s best wildlife / golfing experience. The course borders the Kruger National Park.
Innovative architectural and landscaping techniques ensure that the Leopard Creek golf course and living areas are naturally protected from animals, while lakes and small streams have been diverted through the development to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies.
Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek, for much of the water is home to the magnificent creatures for which the river is named, crocodiles. Extensive use has been made of water features and sightings of crocodile, hippo, antelope, buffalo and elephant are commonplace, on the course or in the Kruger Park bordering the course.
Leopard Creek is a Gary Player designed course measuring in at 6665m. Fairways are coated in a svelte Kikuyu and the greens with Bent grass. Gary Player is especially proud of the par-five 18th with its island green and the par-four 9th with its peninsula green jutting out of the same body of water.
The 505 meter par-five 13th is one of Leopard Creek’s most memorable holes. Here the green is right on the edge of the Crocodile river but 32 meters above the level of the water, offering magnificent views up the river and into the Kruger Park.
Visitors are limited as the course is reserved for guests and members. The facilities are absolutely of the highest standard and include a clubhouse with views over the Kruger National Park.
