Sun City Resort - Gary Player Course

This par-72 course is one of the longest courses in Player’s native South Africa, and the pro tees (burgundy) give a total playing length of 7162 meters. Luckily there are four sets of tees to choose from. Choose wisely.

After a relatively easy first hole, a par four over a slight rise (though no hole is truly ‘easy’ on this course) and a fairly long par five 2nd hole, you’ll start to forget the sounds of Sun City behind you. As it gradually becomes secluded and peaceful you realize fully that you are in the wilderness. Beyond the fairways the terrain quickly turns into African bushveld, from which recovery is difficult.

The kikuyu fairways are smooth as velvet, and the bent grass greens are seemingly kept in perfect condition.

The 4th hole is a scenic par three over water with a stone wall as curved bank, and the mountain backdrop makes the scene one to remember.

The 9th is often referred to as a signature hole. It’s a long hole (545 meters from the very back), and the island green is tough to get to in two shots. How Ernie Els and Henrik Stenson shot the course record of 63 on this course, it’s hard to fathom.

Lunch at the halfway house is included in the green fee, so enjoy a little break before taking on the last nine.

The wildlife is a great part of the experience of playing here. When the sun lowers on the horizon the impala, monkeys, birds and other animals make their way in greater numbers onto the course. Bring your camera.

The final stretch of holes is both picturesque and a big challenge. The par three 16th next to the lake is protected front, back, left and right by bunkers. The magnificent (and very tough) par four 18th demands a long carry over water on the second shot, if your drive places you well enough in position to attempt it at all. Bring a few extra balls.

Despite the difficulty, it’s hard not to feel energized by walking the 18 holes of golf at the Gary Player course. It may occur to you that perhaps this is where Player, who is fit as a fiddle and closing in on 80 years of age, may have found his elixir of youth.
