Tour  Itinerary

DAY 1
On arrival at Durban International Airport you will be met and transferred to the luxurious Ballito Manor where you will be staying for 4 nights on a Bed and Breakfast basis. Your hired car will be delivered to the hotel on your arrival.

Ballito Manor is situated in the heart of the Dolphin Coast with direct access to the golden beaches of the Indian Ocean. Ballito Manor is a personalized boutique hotel which offers privacy, style and a wide variety of entertainment - including a health spa; a billiard room; a well stocked library; swimming pool and squash court.

DAY 2
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. It is 6524 metres and a par 72 course. Golf carts are compulsory.

DAY 3
Play golf this morning at Mount Edgecombe Golf Estate.
Situated 20 km north of Durban, just inland from Umhlanga Rocks, this golfing estate boasts two championship courses. The first and older course, has established credentials - having hosted several pro tournaments. The ambience remains old and stately with the fairways sweeping between densely massed pines and tall gum trees. The greens are heavily featured and excellent, with "Country Club" grass surfaces. 5977 m / Par 71.

DAY 4
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 them.

DAY 5
Check out of The Ballito Manor and transfer yourselves to the Magaliesburg where you will be staying for 3 nights in the Thatchstone Village at Mount Grace on a B & B basis.

A mere hour from Johannesburg (± 100 km from Johannesburg Airport) lies this haven of tranquility and beauty - Mount Grace - set in 10 acres of exquisite garden surrounded by the Magaliesburg Mountains. Mount Grace's water features, bird life, indigenous bush and English country gardens all lend to a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

After checking in, enjoy a sundowner at Hartley's Bar. Dinner can be taken at either The Stoep - an a la carte restaurant with an intimate, romantic atmosphere or The Copperfield Grill which offers generous country buffets. (Breakfast is served at The Copperfield).

DAY 6
Play golf this morning at Pecanwood Golf Estate.
Situated on the banks of the Hartebeespoort Dam, some 40 minutes from Sandton, it is one of Jack Nicklaus's signature courses. The course layout has generously wide, "collecting" fairways with large multi-featured greens, several water hazards, severe bunkers and slick, demanding putting surfaces. 6995m in length and par 72, precise positional play and lines of attack are required if pars and birdies are to be had.

Enjoy a complimentary afternoon tea of tea, coffee and pastries at the Café Complet. A light lunch can be served to you on the veranda or in the garden or at the Spa Café.

DAY 7
There is plenty to do at Mount Grace: billiards room; extensive library; outdoor heated pool; mountain bikes; bowls; croquet; tennis; horse riding; bird watching; country walks; trout and bass fishing; or "War and Wilderness excursions". It also houses a Hydro Spa which offers various treatments and has a heated pool, flotation pool and natural rock pool.

DAY 8
Check out of Mount Grace and transfer yourselves to the Sun City Resort Complex in the North-West Province. Here you will be staying at either The Cascades or Sun City Hotel for 3 nights on a B&B basis. Situated 180 km north-west of Johannesburg.

DAY 9
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.

DAY 10
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.

DAY 11
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.
