The Lost City Golf Course was designed by famed South African golfing figure, Gary Player. This spectacular par-72 course is a cart course, complete with a state-of-the-art clubhouse, and is a short stroll from The Palace of the Lost City. It features a water hazard of 20 live Nile crocodiles on the 13th hole and offers facilities such as a driving range, and a fully equipped golf Pro Shop.

Please can someone explain to me why the golf carts are not fitted with GPS? Or does this golf course not cater for the more advance golfer?

Very well manicured course, challenging for both the average and low handicap golfer. Would definitely play this one before the other course at the resort. Staff are friendly and helpful What more could you want ?
