Play golf this morning at the prestigious Zimbali Golf Club.
Designed by Tom Weiskopf, the layout is a subtle blend of
the classic and contemporary and is complemented by its unspoilt
sub-tropical coastal surroundings. The layout includes both
an open "links-like" feel on the opening holes,
with some of the last holes sweeping through forest and across
wetlands, giving off a "coastal parkland" feel.

Situated 20 km north of Durban, just inland from Umhlanga
Rocks, this golfing estate boasts two championship courses.

5977 m / Par 71.
Play golf this morning at Prince's Grant Golf Estate.
Designed by Peter Matkovich in 1994, this 5804 m / par 72
course is exhilarating to play and unrivalled in its sea views
and sheer beauty of the land. The challenges on the layout
match its aesthetic. Many holes have linksland features -
notable in the mounding, the fairway plateaus and the large
greens. Others have parkland characteristics - particularly
as regards the creative use of water. Many of the holes will
linger in the imagination, whilst it is the crescendo of the
closing holes which will live on after the experience of playing

Play golf today at The Lost City Country Club.
Length: 6983 m; par 72. Also designed by Gary Player with
a theme that is of an African Adventure in the Indiana Jones
style. It abounds with surprises - one being a short hole
(not telling which one) which is played over a crocodile infested
pit to a green shaped like the continent of Africa! The course
is aesthetically pleasing and can distract one from the excellence
of the layout which balances birdie opportunities with the
sternest of examination papers. With many water hazards these
plush playing corridors seem oasis-like as they thread their
way through the arid African bushveld.
Play golf today at the The Gary Player Country Club.
Length: 7033m; Par 72. Gary Player designed this superb modern
resort course which was constructed some 20 years ago, and
whose fame has been spread worldwide by the Nedbank Golf Challenge
played annually in December. The course is immaculately presented
with wide kikuyu fairways and bent grass greens contrasting
with the more barren thorn-scrub and aloe-covered hillsides
through which the big layout meanders. Putting surfaces are
firm, fast and perfect emphasized by dramatic bunkering which
allows for a variety of elusive pin positions. Water comes
into play on 5 holes. Most famously the par-five 9th is an
island green surrounded by waterfalls and artificial rocks.
Check out of Sun City and transfer to Johannesburg International
Airport for your connecting flight home. Please deposit your
hired car at the airport depot.
