Africa

Covering around 20% of the entire land area on the planet, Africa is both the second largest and second most populous continent in the world. It’s bounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, measuring 5,000 miles from top to bottom and around 4,600 miles from west to east, between Cape Verde and Somalia. Despite an abundance of natural resources, Africa remains the poorest and most underdeveloped continent on the planet, with a large proportion of its one billion inhabitants living in abject poverty. For those poverty-stricken people, golf is unlikely to be part of any sporting experience they might encounter.

Africa

Covering around 20% of the entire land area on the planet, Africa is both the second largest and second most populous continent in the world. It’s bounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, measuring 5,000 miles from top to bottom and around 4,600 miles from west to east, between Cape Verde and Somalia. Despite an abundance of natural resources, Africa remains the poorest and most underdeveloped continent on the planet, with a large proportion of its one billion inhabitants living in abject poverty. For those poverty-stricken people, golf is unlikely to be part of any sporting experience they might encounter.

Football is easily the most popular sport in Africa with many millions of soccer-mad fans following the game and golf struggles to make its mark. Nevertheless, the North African countries of Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt cater rather well for visiting players and new millennium designs from Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Jnr and Greg Norman have certainly enhanced the golfing reputation of these nations. Similarly, two other golfing hotspots on the eastern side of the continent, namely Kenya and Mauritius, offer tourists a fine selection of mainly resort-style courses.

For real strength in depth, you’ll have to travel to the southern extremities of the continent, to the Rainbow Nation of South Africa, where we’ve featured the Top 100 golf courses in that country since 2012. To read our latest news release detailing the Top 100 Golf Courses of South Africa, simply click the preceding link.


In Africa, forty-nine of the fifty-nine countries boast at least one golf course and the continent accommodates almost 900 golf facilities in total, with more than 90% of these available for public play. An R&A report entitled “Golf around the World 2019” terms Africa “golf's most under-developed continent,” where 56 new courses are being developed, 21 of which were under construction at the end of 2018. To see the full report, click this R&A link then download the free publication.
