Hans Merensky Golf Course
A visit to the Hans Merensky Hotel and Spa can only be enhanced by a game of golf on the world famous Hans Merensky Golf Coursee set in a unique bushveld atmosphere bordered by the Kruger National Park. Share your experience with resident Giraffe, Hippo, Crocodiles and many other permanent residents who pay scant regard to the park fencing! The 18 hole Bob Grimsdell designed Par 72 Championship Golf course has been voted as the best walking course in the country.
An unusual benefit to the enjoyment of a round is that the land on which the course is built once formed part of the Park. Magnificent bushveld trees line the fairways and form backdrops to the holes, giving the impression that the course is far older than its 30 years. Hans Merensky has hosted many high-profile professional and amateur tournaments, a measure of its widely acknowledged quality - a true revelation. There is not a single weak hole, but from the forward trees, the novice is sure to thoroughly enjoy the round. To single out specific holes on so fine a layout, proves a difficult task, but the four par 5's are all excellent, particularly the 16 th, where a pulled or hooked drive could well land in the Kruger Park. The par three 8th and 17th holes, both over water to well-bunkered greens, are also exceptional.
Facilities at Hans Merensky Golf Course include a Pro shop, Driving range, Golf club hire and Golf Carts.
