Legend Signature Golf Course
The Legend Golf & Safari Resort presents a world first, namely the championship Legend Signature Golf Course designed by eighteen of the world’s top golfers. Each hole has the vision of a great golfer at its heart. And the stunning setting of the Signature Course only adds to its unique nature. A Par 72, which begins with South African designer Trevor Immelman and ends with South African designer Retief Goosen, the Signature Course boasts amazingly wide fairways and immaculate USGA standard greens.
The Legend Signature Course is at once the longest golf course in South Africa, providing all golfers, irrespective of their handicap, the experience of a true African challenge. The course has flowing fairways which wind through the open grasslands and dense bush. The sheer scale of the golf course, with gently undulating greens and strategic bunkering ensures a unique golfing experience with breathtaking views of the Waterberg mountains as a backdrop.
With game meandering across those lush fairways and the enigmatic Hanglip Mountain overlooking the course, the Legend Golf & Safari Signature Course is making a name for itself as Africa's most exciting new golf development.
The list of signatures who have been honoured to design a hole reads like a who’s who of world golf.

In addition Legend Golf & Safari Resort also offers the Extreme 19th with a teebox set high up on the impressive Hanglip Mountain and accessible only by helicopter. This par 3 hole measures 830 metres from tee to green and is played from a vertical height of 430 metres, making it the highest and most dramatic par 3 in the world. With advanced technology in the form of four separate cameras and the latest tracking equipment, the golfer can follow and capture the tee shot and the flight of the ball. The fairway is seeded with Cynodon grass and contoured to funnel the ball to the green below. In celebration of the African Renaissance, the green has been shaped like the map of Africa and is protected by a large waste bunker.
