Swaziland- The golfer’s destination
The Kingdom of Swaziland with its wealth of culture, abundant wilderness experiences and vast land embellished with flora and fauna, is the ultimate destination for travellers of all kinds. Throughout the years, as the country has grown into a destination of choice, Swaziland has come to engage tourists through various adventure activities, such as the famous canopy tours, white water rafting, and hiking. One of the most prominent activities this beautiful land has come to be known for, is the sophisticated art of golfing.
Catering to the needs and desires of the avid golfer, Swaziland boasts with at least two fully equipped state of the art golf estates; the Nkonyeni Residential Golf Estate and the Royal Swazi Spa Valley resort.
The Nkonyeni Residential Golf Estate features the world-class Championship Golf course, designed by internationally acclaimed golf course architect, Phil Jacobs and further constructed by golf course superintendent and design coordinator, Robert Richardson.
As the Nkonyeni Residential Golf Estate golf course meanders through the game reserve, players find themselves enjoying a remarkable experience out in the open air, surrounded by the vibrant unflawed splendour of the course. With shots which cut across the Usuthu River, this golf course provides a worthwhile journey, from the starting point all the way to the final 18th hole.
Set in the undeniable serenity of the Ezulwini Valley, the 5-star Royal Swazi Spa Valley resort is not only home to some of the most spectacular accommodation but is also the perfect place for hosting international golf championships.
The Royal Swazi golf course, much like the Nkonyeni Bushveld golf course has been designed to international standards, ensuring that each course is customised to best suit the environment and climate.
Golfers can enjoy a competitive game of golf while embracing the unique vantage point from every tee and green on this idyllic 18-hole championship golf course which stretches from the Lugogo Mountain Range into the lush valley of Ezulwini.
Golfers can look forward to unwinding at the clubhouses found on both the Nkonyeni Residential Golf Estate and on the Royal Swazi Spa Valley resort, each of which are strategically placed within close proximity of the golf courses, overlooking the tranquil vies Swaziland has to offer and are well equipped with stellar facilities such as; locker rooms, restaurants, meeting rooms, informal lounges and conference areas.
A weekend spent in the Kingdom of Swaziland uncovering some of its treasures and delving into the wonderful game of golf is an experience worth exploring.
