Northern Cape

Extending to over 140,000 square miles, Northern Cape is both the largest and – with a population of around a million people – the most sparsely populated province in South Africa. This vast area stretches inland from the Atlantic Ocean in the west, sharing boundaries with four other domestic provinces, as well as bordering Namibia and Botswana in the Kalahari Desert region to the north.

Two bodies govern amateur golf in the Northern Cape province. The first of these is the Northern Cape Golf Union, which has around 6,000 members in 62 clubs, spread over two provinces with 25 clubs in the Northern Cape section. The other regional golf authority is Karoo Golf Union and its 20 affiliated clubs are located within an area that extends, clockwise, from Upington to De Aar to Beaufort West to Calvinia.

Kimberley, one of the oldest clubs on the African continent, was founded in 1890 and its members play today on a fine 18-hole layout where the putting surfaces have evolved from sand browns to diamondiferous tailings to the Elliot grass greens that are now in use. However, by far and away the best course in the region is found at Sishen, where eighteen lush green fairways have been routed around a Camel Thorn forest.
