The Zebula Golf Course is located in a basin of the most pristine African bushveld. Surrounded by game lodges, nature and wildlife reserves, Zebula certainly boasts one of the best locations for a bushveld course. Zebula is the only 5 Star golfing resort in South Africa.
It’s not all looks though; the Peter Matkovich designed course reveals his usual flair for being both challenging and accommodating. Four tees are on offer for your preference with the longest one measuring 6829m. Peter went of his way to ensure the lands natural contours were followed and the result is a seamlessly integrated bushveld course that is second to none.
Peter’s approach to golf design is best expressed in his own words “"Golf course design is an area where we have immense responsibility. Besides trying to create the most enjoyable and memorable courses for golfers to play on, we need to ensure that we do it in such a way that those who come after us, can do so with the same wonder and awe at all of nature's beauty. Golf courses can and should have a positive impact on their surrounds, which is essential for the game to grow.” This sums up golfing at Zebula perfectly.
The 660-hectare estate also includes wildlife enclosures for safe safari encounters and lies next to the 12 500 hectare Zebula Game Reserve, should you care to view the wildlife in their natural habitat.
