Eye of Africa was much improved from my last visit. The greens were impressive and a pleasure to putt on. A well-presented course that is fun to play, with challenging slopes and approach shots, and this Greg Norman design provides a welcome change from Gauteng’s parkland layouts. The uphill 396-metre third is a tight hole, both off the tee and the angled approach to a green protected by water on the left. Two other uphill par 4s on the front nine are 4 (337) and 6 (370) where a bold tee shot is rewarded with a relatively simple approach. But trouble lurks in the form of large bunker complexes well placed to snare an errant drive. The poor consistency of the bunkers is the Eye’s “Achilles heel.” The sand is either powdery or down to liner level. It needs attention as it detracts from an otherwise pleasant experience. Service at the on-site facilities is excellent.
