Bushman Sands Golf Course, Alicedale
Bushman Sands Golf Course / This 18-hole championship Bushman Sands Golf Course was designed by South African golfing legend, Gary Player. The course follows the banks of the Bushmans and New Years Rivers, resembling the game's earliest "links" courses in Scotland with undulating fairways and pot bunkers.
Unique features at the Bushman Sands Golf Course include playing the first stroke over the railway line, a double green (1400 sq.m) shared by the 2nd and 5th holes, crossing the Bushman’s River and New Year’s River on various holes and finishing with a final drive over a small cemetery in the centre of the fairway.
The dramatic 14th hole will probably be the feature hole on this course. The hole plays across a valley and stream to a green that is wide but not very deep and is positioned close to the railway line. This hole will prove a testing challenge for most golfers.
