THE BIG FIVE Sea Cliff Forget about the four-legged ‘Big Five’ Africa is famous for… pack your clubs and


tee up at these five unforgettable holes across the continent Words: Richard Holmes


9th, Sea Cliff Resort, Zanzibar travellers soaking up sun, sea and sand on the ‘Spice Isle’ of Zanzibar should certainly look to enjoy a round on the island’s only golf course, situated at the Sea Cliff Resort & Spa. And while it may only offer nine holes,


this charming course is no slouch when it comes to memorable tropical golfing. Laid out by acclaimed architect Peter Matkovich, the course makes full use of the resort’s stunning coastal seting. Sea views come standard on most holes, as fairways meander through a landscape of mangrove forests, mango trees and waving palms that wait patiently to trap errant drives. “Sea Cliff Golf Course is designed to give


the hotel guest and visitor an enjoyable and fun golfing experience, while at the same time being challenged to their individual skill level — be they a beginner or scratch player,” says Matkovich. With 18 tee boxes to play from the course


certainly offers a varied round, but no hole is as memorable as the par-3 9th. This 425ſt par-3 may appear straightforward, but looks can be deceiving. An elevated tee gazes out to a wide,


but deceptively shallow, green. Come up short and you’ll land in a bunker complex guarding the approach. Play too long and


you’ll be searching for your ball on the beach behind. Club selection is key and you’ll be more than happy to walk away with par. Green fees from £45. seacliffgolf.com


Extreme 19th, Legends Golf Resort, South Africa not many golf holes require a helicopter ride to reach the tee box, but that’s precisely how a swing on the ‘Extreme 19th’ at Legends Golf Resort kicks off. This remarkable course, situated in


the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, three hours’ drive north of Johannesburg, offers up a memorable Bushveld golf experience.


Extreme 19th, Legends Golf Resort


Each hole on the course was designed by a different golfing legend, from Trevor Immelman (1st) to Colin Montgomerie (6th) and Vijay Singh (15th). But it’s the addition of the unique 19th


hole that’s really captured golfers’ atention, with the tee box for this signature hole situated atop the precipitous Hangberg Mountain. The carry needed to hit the green (which, in a nice touch, is contoured and shaped like the African continent)? A staggering 394 yards, with a 430-yard vertical drop to factor into your shot. Litle wonder nobody has yet claimed the $1m prize for a hole-in-one. From £145 (if booked as a four-ball), for six balls. legendhospitality.co.za
