Designed by golfing legend Gary Player, this 18-hole, par 72 walking course is located in front of the Soho Hotel and Cascades Hotel. Home to the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge, with a first prize of $2-million, the course has hosted some of the biggest names in golf. It is has been cleverly designed with imaginatively placed bunkers and multiple tees to give both novice and skilled golfers a satisfying round. The kikuyu fairways and bent-grass greens offer a near-perfect playing surface.
The elegant Gary Player Country Club provides a social hub for players and spectators alike. Its restaurant overlooks the rolling greens, the pro shop is stocked with golfing must-haves, and one floor is dedicated to the modern gym and luxurious spa. A pleasant 5km (about three miles) running trail stretches alongside the course.
