Description

Nelspruit Golf Club was founded in November 1928 and moved to its present location in 1939. The bushveld course is a Bob Grimsdell design, built among rocky outcrops of land in the suburbs of Nelspruit, and the course has a curious history. It was originally a 9-hole golf course for nearly 30 years before Grimsdell returned to complete the second nine in 1967-68. The course was left largely untouched until 1998 when Peter Matcovitch upgraded the course and the adjacent “Matumi Golf Estate” was established.

Nelspruit (Mbombela) is the capital city of the province of Mpumalanga. The city lies in the fertile valley of the Crocodile River, 330km (205.06 miles) east of Johannesburg in the hot and humid Lowveld.

Nelspruit Golf Club is famous for hosting the annual Jock of the Bushveld Festival of Golf, considered the biggest amateur tournament of its kind in the world. Started in 1968, it has grown to the extent where some 800 amateurs from far and wide play more than 2 000 rounds during a week in May.

In close proximity to the club is the Kruger National Park. This is one of the world’s biggest and best-stocked game reserves, with Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino) present in abundant numbers. The Malelane Gate, southern access to the Kruger Park, is about 60km (37.28 miles) away and is a must visit for both international and local visitors after their game of golf with us.

Renowned for its excellent putting surfaces, magnificent birdlife, warm hospitality and efficient service, Nelspruit Golf Club is a great golfing destination easily located off three major routes.
