Bushman Sands Golf Course

This Golf Course has 18 holes, and we developed by the South African golfing legend, Gar Player. The course is set out on the banks of the Bushmans and New Years River, which is similar to the early “links” courses in Scotland with pot bunkers.Its exclusive features include; playing the first stroke over the active railway line, a double green which consists of the 2nd and 5th holes, crossing the Bushman's River. The course is challenging, but fun, to be enjoyed by all.

Total distance:

  • Champ - 6034M
  • Club - 5562M
  • Ladies - 4783M

Golf Course Facilities

  • Clubhouse Pub-Restaurant
  • Halfway house
  • Golf Pro-shop

The Signature Hole

The signature hole is a 3 14 hole with the tee shot played from elevated tee boxes across the river. Any player making a three here has done well, and anyone making a birdie has certainly got one over on the master designer, Gary Player.

Golf course ranking

The golf course was rated 80th in the Golf Digest Top 100 courses in South Africa in 2008. This is an improvement of 7 places from 2007. With the constant efforts and attention being put in by the course maintenance staff the course will continue to improve in the rankings. The ultimate goal being a place in the top 50.

The Signature Hole

The signature hole on this golf course is a 3 14 hole with the tee shot being played from elevated tee boxes across the river. It requires a well struck accurate tee shot with a long iron and for the shorter hitter maybe even a hybrid club or fairway wood. The green is well bunkered at the front but there is a generous landing area on which to land your ball and a nice bail out area to to the left side of the green. Any player making a three here has done well, anyone making a birdie has certainly got one over on the master designer, Gary Player.

Bushman paintings

This area os South Africa has been recaptured by the Bushman paintings which are accessible in the reserve and can be viewed on request. Many years ago, these paintings prove that the stories of the Khoi people remains for years to come. Something else that is special about this reserve is the huge 200ha New Years Dam located in the heart of the land. Originally built as a source of water for the steam trains, the dam now sustains the wildlife in the arid Eastern Cape landscape. Interesting features on game drives include the heritage site of the Battle of Death valley and the Sunset cruises on the New Years Dam.
