Golfing at Gary Player Country Club

Designed by Gary Player

The Gary Player Country Club at Sun City was designed by its namesake, Gary Player, one of the most iconic figures in golf. Known for his rigorous standards and innovative designs, Player created a course that is both challenging and visually stunning, incorporating the natural landscape into the course layout.

The Gary Player Country Club is an 18-hole championship course that consistently ranks among the best in South Africa and is considered one of the longest and most challenging courses in the country. Set against the backdrop of the Pilanesberg Mountains, the course features wide kikuyu fairways, bentgrass greens, and numerous water hazards and bunkers strategically placed to test golfers of all skill levels. The layout is meticulously maintained, ensuring a premium golfing experience year-round.

Signature Holes

Hole 9 – Par 5: This hole is famous for its length and complexity. It requires a precise tee shot to avoid water hazards on the right and a strategic approach to navigate the bunkers protecting the green. The elevated green offers stunning views of the surrounding area.

Hole 13 – Par 3: One of the most picturesque holes on the course, this par 3 features a large water hazard that must be carried to reach the green. The green itself is well-protected by bunkers, making accuracy off the tee crucial.

Hole 18 – Par 5: The finishing hole is iconic and challenging, featuring a dogleg left with water hazards and bunkers along the fairway. The approach to the green is particularly demanding, with water guarding the front and sides, providing a dramatic and memorable end to the round.

The Gary Player Country Club hosts several prestigious tournaments throughout the year, most notably the Nedbank Golf Challenge, which attracts top golfers from around the world. Membership at the club offers exclusive benefits, including priority tee times, access to members-only events, and opportunities to engage with a vibrant golfing community.
