Innovative architectural and landscaping techniques ensure that the Leopard Creek golf course and living areas are naturally protected from animals, while lakes and small streams have been diverted through the development to create scenic vistas and interesting golf strategies.
Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek, for much of the water is home to the magnificent creatures for which the river is named, crocodiles. Extensive use has been made of water features and sightings of crocodile, hippo, antelope, buffalo and elephant are commonplace, on the course or in the Kruger Park bordering the course.
The 505 meter par-five 13th is one of Leopard Creek’s most memorable holes. Here the green is right on the edge of the Crocodile river but 32 meters above the level of the water, offering magnificent views up the river and into the Kruger Park.
Gary Player is especially proud of the par-five 18th with its island green and the par-four 9th with its peninsula green jutting out of the same body of water.
The elegant clubhouse is sited on the bank of the Crocodile River. The lounge leads on to a covered patio – watch play on the 9th and 18th greens or enjoy a leisurely cocktail and a superb view of the animals in the Kruger National Park.A second terrace leading out from a fully equipped bar offers spectacular sunset vistas over the river. An extensive, professional kitchen serves full meals.A fully stocked Pro Shop, well-appointed changing facilities and individual lockers, spike-proof carpeting throughout and covered parking for golf carts cater for the most discerning golfer.
