Nkonyeni Golf Estate

course5 300Nkonyeni Golf Estate is situated in 1200 hectares of gorgeous bushveld overlooking the Great Usutu River, and surrounded by mountains.

The course was designed by Phil Jacobs, who also designed Leopard Creek, widely regarded as being the best course in South Africa. Nkonyeni provides an exciting and pleasurable challenge for all golfers with the 18th hole offering a unique shot across the Great Usuthu River onto an island in the river surrounded by magnificent rocks. The course meanders through the Game Reserve and you can enjoy the golf with the game looking on.

Almost all the holes come as a surprise as they are generally not visible until you reach the tee. There are some stunning views and plenty of seating areas to soak it all up. The whole course and estate exudes tranquillity. The course is presented in immaculate condition with fast true greens, manicured fairways and tees and a large number of bunkers without a grain of sand out of place.

buggyGuests stay in private villas on the estate, each with a private pool. The villas are spacious, offering large open plan sitting rooms and kitchens and covered veranda areas to enjoy breakfast in the mornings. All of the rooms come with air conditioning. Buggies will be available at all times to guests so you can drive down to the clubhouse for a drink or a bite to eat or pop out for a quick 9 holes. Don’t forget to spend an hour or two relaxing in the pool at the foot of the clubhouse overlooking the 18th green, you are sure to see a few lost balls.

We can’t recommend Nkonyeni highly enough. It really is a superb venue. I don’t think I have ever played golf in such a peaceful setting. Simply stunning, an absolute gem of a course!
