Zebula’s greens are superb, as good as I’ve seen them, and the conditioning of the Waterberg resort course is improving markedly. Surprisingly green at this time of year due to regular irrigation throughout the winter months. Being part of a game reserve, all 18 greens still need to be roped off overnight to deter animals from trotting over them. The antics of the wildlife on the course are part of the experience, and they often make you pause during the round. We watched a wildebeest having a sand bath in a fairway bunker, rubbing its back, leaving a calling card, and then dashing off. Plenty of bird species to be spotted. At the end of the day there was an excellent vibe around the outdoor 19th hole, and the enormous practice putting green was being put to good use by a large group of tourists.
