South Africa as a Golfing Destination

As a golfing destination, South Africa is rated very highly by many golfers throughout the world. South Africa has over 450 golf courses, and a number of these golf courses are truly world class. Legends of golf such as Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Ernie Els, Greg Norman and Annika Sorenstam have created signature golf courses in South Africa. In South Africa, golf is booming, and has become an extremely popular sport. This is as a result of the ideal climate conditions that exist in South Africa, and golf can be played 365 days a year in most locations throughout the country.

For the international tourist, a South African golf holiday is financially attractive. This is due to the favorable exchange rate of the South African Rand. Visitors can play world class golf courses under the spectacular African sun, and the green fees will be a fraction of what you would expect to pay in America or Europe. Add to this the cheaper accommodation rates, cheaper restaurants and cheaper travel, and one can see why South African golf holidays are gaining in popularity.
