Johannesburg golfer Hugh Baiocchi – well respected member of the European Tour in the 1970s and 1980s – designed the 18-hole championship course at Champagne Sports Resort and it first opened for play in 1997.

Located in the Drakensberg mountain region between Johannesburg and Durban, the golf course here is one of several outdoor pursuits on offer at a 122-bedroomed hotel complex, including fishing, mountain biking, hiking and horse riding.

It is easy to see that no expense was spared in setting up the course – greens were sown with L93 bent-grass, fairways with kikuyu grass and bunkers lined with white Bronkhorstspruit sand , providing a well balanced test over 7,363 yards from the back tees.

With the Champagne and Cathkin Peaks as a spectacular backdrop, teeing it up in the mountains here is an exhilarating experience that really should be sampled during a golfing getaway trip!
