Gary Player Designed Golf Courses' Tour
Southern Africa is home to some of the continent’s finest golf courses and this is perhaps not surprising considering that the region has also produced some of the World’s best professional golfers.
If you have ever wondered why the region punches so far above its weight in golfing terms – currently placed third overall among those countries with the most winners of golf’s Majors in the modern era – the golf courses these players developed their skills on is a key part of this recipe.
Gary Player’s record stands head and shoulders above the rest of his fellow countrymen while his on course exploits inside the ropes have now been matched by his flair for design and golf course architecture.
The tour will start in Gauteng, which is South Africa’s most densely populated province and the country’s commercial and political hub.
The first leg will feature games at three award winning courses, two of which are in golf estates.
Dainfern Golf and Residential Estate, on the northern borders of Sandton, was the first golf estate to be developed in Gauteng which was then known as the Transvaal.
