Located in Mafikeng, the Capital of the North West Province, Leopard Park Golf Course is one of the more recent Peter Matkovich projects. South Africaís premiere golf designer has successfully created yet another jewel amongst the thorns and turned the usual dry and dusty conditions of the area into a refreshing and lush oasis of a golf course.
Perpetuating the theme of the oasis, water comes into play on eight of the eighteen holes and finishes spectacularly with an island green on the 18th. The fairways can be described as long and slender, meaning that accuracy is important if you want your ball to stay upon the well knitted Kikuyu. The greens are coated in Bent grass and provide dramatic endings to many of the holes.
Measuring in at 6720m this parkland course is a long one, however, to cater to the various levels of golfer, four different tee options a have been provided for your pleasure. And lucky for us, visitors are always welcome at Leopard Park.
Facilities include a Pro-Shop, Club hire, Cart Hire & Driving Range.
