2017 NOVEMBER “Epic Edition” is now Full. Please read UPDATE below for this tour.

South Africa is a country that captures everyone’s imagination. It is epic, grand and offers a kaleidoscope of experiences that will linger with you long after you leave this captivating continent. It is a place of enormous beauty and diversity – stretching from the hippos in the Crocodile River to the penguins of the Cape. The golf is nothing short of spectacular when you have the chance to play South Africa’s BIG 3 golf courses. And these are just a few of the highlights…

Nothing evokes images of a great South African adventure more than iconic game drives through the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Feel the exhilaration as you find yourself face to face with the local wildlife. There, you’ll tee off in style at the very exclusive Leopard Creek Golf Club. Then it is off to Sun City, one of the country’s premier golf destinations and home to the Gary Player course, the no1 course in South Africa.

Wind your way through the spectacularly scenic Garden Route where some of the country’s top golf can be found. You’ll stay at the world-leading Fancourt Golf Resort teeing off at the famed Links golf course and the exquisite Montagu parkland course. More golfing highlights abound with Arabella, Pinnacle Point, Clovelly and Royal Cape. There are amazing experiences for non-players too.

This is the ultimate South African golfing safari. You’ll laze about in 5-star accommodation and safari lodges to ensure you travel in luxurious comfort and in locations that open the doors to exclusive golf courses. Go Golfing’s founder, Peter McCarthy, will host this tour. Our South African tours never disappoint and are quick to sell out. This 5-star exclusive golf safari is strictly limited, so please reserve your place now…

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Since the release of this tour, we have received a notification from the Leopard Creek club manager, advising the course will be closed for renovations for 4-6 months from October 2017.

Kruger Park will be one of the star attraction of your South African experience – so we thought we’d up the ante on your experience there and turn it into something truly magical.

And here is what we have secured for you…

  1. You’ve been upgraded to the luxurious Thornybush Luxury Game Lodge – The Thornybush Game Reserve, is a private game reserve, near Hoedspruit, in the Limpopo province of South Africa. It borders the Kapama Game Reserve and is located close to the Timbavati Game Reserve and the Kruger Park.

This is a place where you are guaranteed a WOW factor in a luxurious and safe setting. To get a glimpse of what’s in store for you, read the trip advisor’s reviews.

  1. For those of you who are keen to play more golf in South Africa, we are investigating options for an additional 9 holes of twilight golf at either Sun City or Fancourt Resort. Arrangements for this additional golf will be confirmed on tour.
