You will not find a more spectacular setting for golf. The thatch-roof clubhouse is fitting for a bushveld course and has beautiful views over the ninth and 18th holes. Johann Rupert must be complimented for envisioning and creating this masterpiece. The new cynodon grass, which is not as green as kikuyu, blends in better with the surrounding flora. It is a tough grass and not easy to play from. The greens look slower but in fact are quite fast. The bunkers are well-placed and penal, especially if you short-side yourself. I like the changes to the course. The greens at Nos 12 and 16 are more receptive with the option of more pin placements. The new tee-box arrangement on 16 is a great improvement. The new green at 17 makes the hole more playable and allows the new tee at nine a magnificent view over the two closing holes. Leopard Creek must be a strong contender for the No 1 spot when the new rankings are announced.
