Flat savannahs and highly challenging ... The Gary Player-designed 18-hole championship course at Graceland Hotel, Casino and Country Club makes use of natural features as the front and back nines follow paths along opposite sides of a valley. The course features a mixture of significant elevation changes, water hazards, rolling fairways and a strategically placed bunker.
The golf course is a typical inland links course with undulating greens and relatively steep, grass-faced bunkers. Two streams twine through seven of the holes and several dams attract a variety of birdlife.
The signature hole is the par 3, 15th, a short but treacherous hole where only a well placed tee shot will be rewarded. The green is well guarded with a water hazard short and up the right side of the green, while two well placed bunkers at the back of the green catch any shot that is even a little bit long. Crenshaw Bent grass and Kikuyu provide ideal playing surfaces.
Relaxing after a stimulating game of golf is enhanced by the well-appointed Augusta Club Lounge, which offers magnificent bay window views across the course and is elegantly decorated with a specially acquired collection of golfing memorabilia from South Africa and abroad. A selection of light meals are available.
