Wild Coast Sun Country Club

KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

THE COURSE

Possibly the greatest challenge at The Wild Coast Sun Golf Course is to conquer the prevailing winds which add an entirely new dimension to the course. Some of South Africa's finest and certainly most dramatic golf holes can be found here. The thirteenth, a par 3 played across a waterfall is generally regarded the best short hole in the country.

And for drama nothing can match the outstanding par 5, twelfth. Here the drive is hit from a high elevated tee to a fairway far below that snakes its way through a valley flanked by a dam and stream on the left with a natural hillock on the right. The more of the river you take on with your drive the easier the approach to the green - an excellent example of a risk and reward par 5. The course may be a daunting challenge for professionals and amateurs alike but its wide fairways and huge greens, attract golfers of all levels.

FACILITIES

Carts are compulsory but this does not detract from the competitive challenge. The club has a driving range, practice tee and halfway house as well as a bar with big screen TV. Tennis courts, squash courts and a swimming pool are also available.
