The 9 hole double tee Skukuza Golf Course lies inside the Kruger Park, next to Skukuza rest camp, and is rated one of the most enjoyable courses to play. Built in the 1970`s by the Rangers from the Kruger Park for recreational purposes. Wild game are free to roam the greens and fairways in this beautiful setting. Golfers have to sign a disclaimer against being eaten, gored or trampled by any of the less friendly inhabitants of the Kruger National Park. The full 18 holes cover 5936 metres par 72.
This Skukuza Golf Course was recently opened to golfers other than the Parks Board staff, this has created a new business inside the Kruger Park. Wild life is frequently seen on the fairways, golfers have been known to abandon a hole because animals are on the green or fairway, and you tend to look closely behind that bush before taking your shot. The story goes that a Impala taking fright when a golf ball whizzed passed it fell and broke its neck, the next party of golfers had to abandon the hole, as a pride of lion had taken up the offer of a free feast.
The Skukuza Golf Course is situated in the Kruger Park which covers an area of 19,000 square kilometres. More than 350 kilometres long and 90 kilometres at its widest this park provides a natural home for the Big Five. Game drives through the park can be taken in your own vehicle, there are various rest camps along the way at which you can stop for snacks etc, but you are not allowed to get out of the vehicle except at these designated points
After an exciting game of golf at Skukuza Golf Course what better place to tell about your shot that was disturbed by one of the Big Five than in the clubhouse at the 19th hole. We will excuse you if you saw pink elephants. We are told that in its 30 year history there has never been any unfortunate incidents, except for elephants deciding to redesign the trees on the course.
