Activities / Sports and Leisure

Golf

The Wild Coast Sun Country Club is a rugged beauty of a course.  Carts are compulsory but this does not detract from the competitive challenge. The Wild Coast golf course may be a daunting challenge for professionals and amateurs alike but its wide fairways and huge greens, attract golfers of all levels.

A first glance at the score card might suggest that this golf course in KwaZulu-Natal is a bit of a push-over - less than 6 000 metres in length with six par threes. On face value this might seem so but in reality the Wild Coast Sun Country Club is one of South Africa's most testing layouts. Indeed renowned American golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones Jnr has created a dramatic golfing experience overlooking the Ocean.

Possibly the greatest challenge is to conquer the prevailing winds which add an entirely new dimension to the course.
Some of South Africa's finest and certainly most dramatic golf holes can be found here. The thirteenth, a par 3 played across a waterfall is generally regarded the best short hole in the country.And for drama nothing can match the outstanding par 5, twelfth. Here the drive is hit from a high elevated tee to a fairway far below that snakes its way through a valley flanked by a dam and stream on the left with a natural hillock on the right.

The more of the river you take on with your drive the easier the approach to the green - an excellent example of a risk and reward par 5.  In keeping with modern business trends, the Wild Coast has boosted its fleet of carts to 60, with a few in reserve. This will cater for a full field of 120 players at any one time.

Pro Shop

The Pro Shop which is located at the Wild Coast Country Club specialises in all golf equipment, the latest golf apparel and a large selection of logo golf wear and accessories are available.

Our family loved staying here...we took a week off and came to the South Coast for family time and it could have not been better. The kids have a lot to do here and always keep busy and the superb location and weather made our stay so comfortable.

Best wishes,
Carmen Napier
