This course to me is much better than Sun City- Gary Player. The day we were there the course was in excellent condition and the beauty around you is unbelievable. This can only improve your golf when the surroundings and views are spectacular. Your mood changes immediately.

There are elevated tee offs, and crocodile pits etc so it really does make for an enjoyable day's play. This course seesm to have less water than Sun City so... More

A vey exciting course to play, although a bit long for us ladies who do not hit far! However, the course and surrounds are absolutely beautiful, and playing here is great fun.

Wow ! What a magnificent day we had at Lost City Golf Course. As a relative 'newbie' to golf, I have only played on a handful of other courses, but this course is amazing. The views were stunning, the weather was magic, and our caddy/spotter was brilliant. We did see the most enormous crocodile about 10 steps from where my... More

This is one of the best golf courses I have ever been on. The views on just about every hole were stunning. The view of the clubhouse from the course is a great big lizard shape. Wow. The 11th hole is a par 3 over a crocodile pit full of crocodiles. to a green in the shape of Africa. It... More

There are some interesting holes, especially the par-3 crocodile pit. We had an amazing caddy, Bongani, who I would recommend to anyone looking to play this course. Staff at the course were very friendly all-round and added... More

This course is no walk over but certainly a bit easier to manage and the fact that have a golf cart does make it a lot easier to play. It also has a fair amount of rough and some of the denser areas can make it difficult to find your ball if you stray. There are some interesting holes like... More
