Golf in South Africa: Golf Courses
The Bluff National Park Golf course is set in a beautiful wetland conservation area in Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa. Fish Eagle soar overhead and the gregarious Plovers, known locally as Kiwiet’s raise their young in the rough - beware the unwary golfer that ventures too close. Herons gracefully stalk the abundant fish and pesky moles. Sometimes we are even privileged to receive a visit from the “B52 Bombers” the Pelicans who stop to share the water with the resident Geese and Cormorants.
We invite you to come and play on our challenging course – we would love to have the opportunity to host your corporate golf days, sponsored golf days, private functions, weddings and birthdays. The Sandpiper Room can accommodate up to 120 guests and catering is available from The Plover.
