Located just outside of Phalaborwa and bordering on the Kruger National Park, the Hans Merensky Golf Course is an another delight of a course to have emerged from the rich lands of Limpopo.
The legendary Bob Grimsdell designed this Par 72 championship with his usual flair for the Parkland layout. The course is a visual masterpiece and the resident wildlife of Giraffe, Hippo and Crocodiles adds a safari element to the game that one would be hard pressed to find elsewhere. The course has recently been voted the best walking course in South Africa and received the Diamond Arrow Award for being the highest rated course in Limpopo. Both are indeed excellent achievements when you consider the competition they face in South Africa. The course itself has been kept in immaculate condition with special attention paid to the Bayview greens. It measures in at 6549m and gladly welcome visitors every day of the week.
Facilities include: Bars, Pro Shop, Club hire, Caddies, Buggy Hire, Driving Range, Putting Green, Halfway House, Lockers, Accommodation and more.
Visitors will be please to know that play here is open to the public. However, it is highly recommended that you book your hotel or accommodation in Phalaborwa and your tee-off times ahead to avoid disappointment.
This is truly an outstanding course and we encourage a trip out to experience golfing magic. Just don’t attempt to retrieve any balls lying too close to the waters edge!
