Located in Mpumalangaís Capital, Nelspruit, the Nelspruit golf course is the busiest and certainly a contender for one of the best courses in the region. Wide evergreen fairways create an aesthetically appealing surface to play off of, but itís not just the looks that keep people coming back.
Nelspruit management have one the most refreshing attitudes to visiting golfers in the industry and their ethos is to treat them in the same way you treat members with affordable, honest rates and bar prices that will compete anywhere in the country.
The club isnít shy about their lush surface and indeed this has been the case ever since the installation of their excellent irrigation system back in 1997. Another one of Nelspruitís boasting point is that their fairways are lined exclusively in indigenous trees. In fact you wonít find a single exotic on the grounds. These trees also play home to over 250 species of birds!
