The well-known Hans Merensky Golf Course is situated only 2 km from our Lodge & Safaris. Crocodile, hippo, warthog and impala add spice to the normal "hazards" of a good game of golf. The 18 hole Championship Golf Course, Par 72 offers you the opportunity to play in a natural African wildlife environment.

The legendary Bob Grimsdell designed this course that extends over a vast area of indigenous bush interspersed with tranquil pools, lush fairways and velvet greens. The natural beauty of this spectacular course is enhanced by the frequent experience of giving way to wildlife while playing a round of golf. The Kruger National Park stretches along the entire length of the clubs eastern boundary.

A round at Hans Merensky itís common to see giraffe, warthogs and all sorts of buck crossing the rolling fairways. Playing through is not an option when the pin is being blocked by a hippo. Itís better to just wait! A golfer playing on this golf course not only has to navigate the large waste bunkers and bushveld trees that line the fairway but also needs to watch out for moving hazards. All this adds to the golfing safari experience.

Water hazards are just that at Hans Merensky! With Live Crocodiles and Hippos, water hazards are really not the place to go searching for misdirected balls. Swallow your pride and take the penalty!

This is a very playable course for all skill levels. We were particularly impressed by the Par 3 on the 8th and 17th. We suggest you clear the water first and then worry about the bunkers that surround the greens.

Located in the Valley of the Elephants, adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Crocodile and hippo add zest to the normal "water hazards" its rated one of the top 20 golf courses in South Africa.
