Limpopo

Limpopo – which changed its name from Northern Province in 2003 – lies in the north east corner of South Africa where it shares international boundaries with Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. One of the poorest regions in the country, Limpopo is doing its best to develop an eco-tourism industry, attracting visitors to the likes of the 5,800 square mile Waterberg Biosphere, a UNESCO-designated reserve.

The Limpopo Golf Union is the smallest of the fourteen South African provincial unions with only fifteen affiliated clubs and a membership of around two and a half thousand male golfers. Its female counterpart, Limpopo Ladies Golf Union, caters for a smaller number of members attached to the same fifteen golf clubs.

Bob Grimsdell’s Hans Marensky course in Phalaborwa was, for many years, the number one course in the province but three new millennium layouts have overtaken it in the rankings. The mighty Legend layout at Sterkrivier is the first of these modern offerings, measuring an incredible 8,500 yards from the back tees. The other two tracks, Zebula and Elements, are highly acclaimed Peter Matkovich designs located within twenty miles of each other, near Bela Bela.
