Set quite magnificently along the banks of the Bushman’s and New Year’s rivers in the heart of Bushman’s Gorge in South Africa’s Eastern Cape stands the Bushman Sands Golf Course.
Designed by golfing legend Gary Player Bushman Sands has been designed to resemble the games earliest links style courses from Scotland. 1.2km separate the various tee options available, which range from Champs to Ladies, and therefore open up the course to all levels of golfer. Bushman’s has been designed to accommodate and to provide an incredibly enjoyable golfing experience to all golfers.
Some of the standout features at Bushman’s include teeing off your game over an active railway line, the 1600sq.m double green shared by holes 2 & 5, the final drive which takes you, hauntingly, over a graveyard and not to forget the multiple crossings over both the Bushman and New Year rivers.
The signature 14th has been designed to punish any lapse in accuracy. Good shot selection is a must and the green is well bunkered. Making the par 3 is considered an excellent job and anyone “birdie-ing” has just inherited some worthy bragging rights.
Facilities at Bushman Sands Golf Club include a Halfway House, Pro-Shop, Locker rooms including showers and the Bunkers restaurant and Pub.
