The Serengeti Golf Club was opened in June 2009, by the iconic golfer and course designer, Jack Nicklaus. This Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course joins an elite group of 300 courses worldwide that carries the Nicklaus name but is the first 27-hole signature course in Gauteng.
There are just five other Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses in South Africa; Pecanwood (Northwest Province), Pearl Valley (Western Cape), Simola (Southern Cape), St Francis Links (Eastern Cape) and Houghton (Gauteng). Serengeti has a reciprocity agreement with these golf courses whereby its members can play the courses at a special rate. For further queries and reciprocity bookings please contact:
Serengeti comprises of an 18 hole course, named Masai Mara, which has a rugged grassland and dune scape look and feel and a 9 hole course, named Whistling Thorn, which features classic design elements and a plains like feel.
The Serengeti Golf Club is the first course in Gauteng to use cool season grasses meaning that the course remains lush green throughout the year. A variety of tee options combined with a careful consideration to daily set-up can provide the sternest of challenges for the most skilled players, yet the ideal environment for new golfers to learn the game. There are a number of unique features, such as the challenging par five, 8th hole with its island green.
Harnessing the two golf courses is a multi faceted clubhouse of over 6500 square meters. This venue is not only aesthetically appealing but incorporates a variety of facilities, including several lounges, bars, two restaurants and banqueting facilities, as well as Golf Academy, Fitment Centre and Pro Shop.
