HANS MERENSKY COUNTRY CLUB (Kruger National Park)

During the winter months, elephants, antelope, giraffe, warthogs & even the big cats can be spotted on the course, an unusual benefit to the enjoyment of a round!

This is another fine course which first evolved from the drawing board of Robert Grimsdell. A major attraction of the Hans Merensky course is the visiting wildlife - the course is bordered by the Kruger National Park near the Phalaborwa Gate and many of the Park's inhabitants pay scant regard to fencing. Particularly during the drier, winter months, elephants, several species of antelope, giraffe, warthogs and even the big cats can be spotted.

An unusual benefit to the enjoyment of a round! The land on which the course is built once formed part of the Park and magnificent bushveld trees line the fairways and form backdrops to the holes, giving the impression that the course is far older than its 30 years. From the moment one enters the club grounds, one realises that this is a uniquely African experience - monkeys leap above the enormous trees near the clubhouse, which is said to have the biggest thatched roof in the country.

The course is truly a revelation. It has hosted many high-profile professional and amateur tournaments, a measure of its widely acknowledged quality. There is not a single weak hole, but from the forward trees, the novice is sure to thoroughly enjoy the round. It is difficult to single out specific holes on so fine a layout, but the four par fives are all excellent, particularly the 16 th, were a pulled or hooked drive could well land in the Park. The par three 8th and 17th holes, both over water to well-bunkered greens, are also exceptional.
