It’s quite a journey to Kambaku, another 110 kilometres east of Nelspruit, yet the golfing experience is worth the drive. It’s an exceptionally well conditioned course for a remote 9-holer, lush cynodon grass from tee to green. The clubhouse overlooks the Crocodile River and is a delightful place to relax. The course is well designed with some testing and interesting holes, and plentiful trees play a part in those challenges. The greens are large, and that on the first hole is the scariest of them all, one from which you’ll be happy to walk off with a two-putt. The course has two superb par 5s, a par 4 where many golfers can drive the green, and three separate par 3s, two of which you only play once. For me the weakest par 3, No 9 and 18, is the one you play twice in 18 holes, because of its situation next to the clubhouse. Both tee shots are played from virtually the same area.
