South Africa
 
 
 

The term “Rainbow Nation” was coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu to describe post-1994 South Africa when apartheid rule officially ended. We’re less than two decades on from the troubles and it’s brilliant to see this remarkable country improve year on year. Long may it continue.

According to the South African Golf Association, there are more than 450 affiliated golf clubs serving more than 125,000 golfers. Surprisingly, the growth in the number of courses has remained relatively static over the last four years or so. Most new courses tend to be of the residential type and the recent majority have been built in the Western Cape.

In 2012, we extended our South African golf course rankings to a Top 100. Scroll down to see the current list.
