The Wildest Golf Experience in the World!

There are some truly incredible golf experiences out there. Whether it’s playing Pebble Beach or journeying abroad, there are an abundance of golf courses around the globe that have amazing things to see.

However, one course is much wilder than others.

Skukuza Golf Club is that golf club.

This 9-hole golf course is located in Africa. More precisely, it is located inside Kruger National Park.

Skukuza Golf Club was originally constructed in 1972, but initially the course was simply used by park employees.

Nowadays the course is open to all visitors. 

The best feature of this golf course and the thing that separates it from its more domestic competition is that the course is not fenced-in.

That means all of the animals that can be seen on a safari in Kruger National Park, are seen wandering onto the course.

These animals include the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo) as well as giraffes, hippos, warthogs, impalas, and more.

Some interesting quirks of the park are that there are no bunkers and that to play you are required to sign an indemnity form.

On the flip side, some rather normal features include caddies and electric carts. There is also a full bar at the facility. 

If traveling to this exotic course, it’s best to be smart and stay aware of your surroundings.

Various predators are known to take down game on the course. (Better watch out for your golf game!)

Likewise, animals tend to use the aptly named “Lake Panic” on the course as a watering hole.
