Kambaku is evolving into one of SA’s foremost golf destinations, one attracting more and more visitors to its remote location at Komatipoort. A spectacular new hole has been built by Harry van Dyk, a founder member and the club’s most passionate benefactor, on the banks of the Crocodile River, a risk-reward short par 4 with an island green. It’s one of the few holes I’ve seen where the 65-metre-long teeing area is as much a feature as the two-tier green. It has been elevated high above the river, and thus survived the massive flooding of the Crocodile and Komati rivers earlier this year. There are 11 greens altogether at Kambaku, and a new creative routing with a varied selection of tees will soon see golfers playing 14 distinctly different holes in this magnificent bushveld setting.
