Play Ancient Golf
with a Knobkierie

Why Play Ancient Golf
in the foothills of the Magaliesberg?

The golf course is situated on the lower slopes of the Magaliesberg. You breathe the fresh clean mountain air and experience the nearness of nature.

You play golf the way it developed in ancient times. Our 9 hole, par 35 and 841 meter knobkierie golf course is the only knobkierie golf course in the world.

The knobkierie is cut from indigenous trees and no two are alike.

The course offers the opportunity for both golfing and non golfing friends to meet and have fun together as everyone has to learn new skills and adapt to the playing conditions. 

Some people play for the personal challenge. Some play for the view. Others play to tick off a challenge on their bucket list. This is an excellent group, team building, school and youth adventure.

The Ancient Golf Experience

The fun starts at Base Camp where you try different clubs. You have to master your knobkierie, the ball and the course whose characteristics change with the seasons and the weather.

After mastering your gear you hike to the start of the course.
This is the only golf course where you can play in your jeans and tekkies.

You can place the ball back on the fairway without taking a penalty. No need to worry about hazards as the course is a hazard itself.

Speed of play is determined by the time it takes to find your ball in the seriously deep rough.
