South African businessman Sol Kerzner created the then-controversial resort community of Sun City some four decades ago, and his project went so well that he proceeded to recreate the design in locations from the Bahamas to Malaysia, Dubai and Morocco. Gary Player's par 72 walking course here is a fine one, having repeatedly hosted the Million Dollar Classic, where the big purse attracts the dozen best golfers on the planet to compete. The layout caters to the wide range of players who visit the resort as well as the top pros with a wide variety of teeing options. The bunkering is strategic; the fairways of kikuyu and greens of bentgrass make for superb playing surfaces. The clubhouse has a restaurant that surveys the course, and features a well-stocked pro shop as well as a fine spa and a gym; there is also a three-mile jogging path.

What a place!! Gary Player did really good here. The course is a walking course so get a caddie! They are a great help to find wayward shots too. Everything from tee to green is in superb condition. Tee’s between 7162m to 5017m makes it possible to play for all golfers. It’s a tough finish so bring extra balls! If you stay at the Cascades Hotel it’s only a one minut walk to the clubhouse. Sun City is a great golf destination not to be missed if you are visiting South Africa !

I just love the setting of the golf course. It’s also a course where the more you play it, the more you know how to play it. The Nedbank Challenge is also a special event as my family is with me; Alastair Roper and Sun International really look after the players and their families, so I have fond memories of the course. It opened in 1979 and was built in a volcanic crater. It’s 6 550m in length and is a great way to walk nearly 7km!
