The Palace of the Lost City, Sun City

4.5
#5 of 123 in Golf in South Africa
Take on The Palace of the Lost City, which combines a challenging course with an impressive design. Created by South African golfing figure Gary Player, the 18-hole, par 72 course has various themed areas, including hilly terrain, desert, and parkland. The course has become particularly well known for its water obstacles, with the hazard on hole 13 offering a rather unusual challenge: the presence of 20 live Nile crocodiles. In addition to the course, a driving range and pro shop serve first-timers and experienced golfers alike.

  • Exquisite location, stunning hotel. Quite amazing what was achieved with the environment. Came here to attend a wedding and everything about the location and set up, the staff, the reception, very well executed. It's an exclusive location, certainly not affordable to all, but if you're able to splash out, it will be most memorable. Recommended if you want an unforgettable vacation or break.
  • No complimentary coffee for tourist guides. Nice setting, but I expect better service from one of the better hotels. I'm sitting outside with another guide and we just want to leave already. Dear Sun, Please look after the team.
