SABIE RIVER GOLF COURSE (Hazyview - Mpumalanga)

'Place where the sun rises'.

The Sabie River Golf Course was originally built 57 years ago by the local farmers for their own use as a nine hole golf course. In 1992 it was redesigned by Golf Data and is today, what Duncan Cruickshank of Compleat golfer magazine refers to as 'a user friendly' 18 hole golf course. Trees and water both play important roles as hazards on this course. At least 14 holes have water hazards. There are five dams and they all play a role.

The 11th - a par 4 - has water on the right all the way up the fairway. The 13th - another par 4 - requires negotiating the trees to reach a raised green. Trees on the 16th and possibly the distraction of knowing a couple dozen hippos and a crocodile or two are nearby, make the 16th hole one to handle with care and skill.

An irrigation system ensures that the kikuyu fairways are well knitted throughout the year. There are bayview grass greens and five dams on the course; water comes into play on 14 holes; silicon sand bunkers guard most of the greens. There are plenty of existing trees, and many more have been planted recently. The rough is short. The course is fairly hilly and very scenic which can be made challenging or fairly forgiving by switching tees and pin placements.
