On Christmas eve, I had the pleasure of playing the Lost City golf course (at the Sun City complex). Having not played the course for nearly 20 years, I was somewhat apprehensive. But, what a delight! Wow! My playing partner was a Florida-based Swiss businessman having a two-week break with his family in South Africa. He rated the course very... More

The golf course is immaculate, awesome layout, challenging holes and a big variety. Clubhouse good, change rooms getting old, bunkers are terrible and need urgent attention

The Lost City Golf course is arguably one of the most scenic golf courses in South Africa. Situated deep inside the African bush, every single hole offers something special from the African bushveld. The course does not play very easily, especially if you have not played it before. However, you always have a good chance to make a reasonable score.... More

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.

This is a great course with a lot of spectacular holes. It gives golfers so great tee off shots, and views as you wind your way around the 18 holes. 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
