THE COURSE

Come and play our 18 hole course

Situated on the outskirts of the town of Kathu in the Northern Cape Province, this is truly a unique setting in which to play a round of golf – the course winds its way through a 500 hectare Camelthorn forest on the edge of the Kalahari Desert.

Built and maintained by Sishen Iron Ore mine and officially opened in 1979, this is the last course designed by Robert (Bob) Grimsdell, which he unfortunately could not see completed. Considering its surroundings, its lush green fairways and greens have surprised many a visitor to this arid region.

About the location

The par 72, 18-hole championship golf course has been rated among the top 30 courses in the country. It is not surprising when you see the picturesque fairways curving away between the majestic camel thorn trees, many of which are centuries old. Sishen golf course is a parkland design golf course.
The course is well bunkered, absolutely laden with the stunning Camel Thorn trees and even manages to bring water into play on three of the holes. Sishen enjoys magnificent views of the surrounding areas and due to its location an uncongested course. Nine times out of ten visitors can show up and get a game. Sishen was the final work of the late Bob Grimsdell, and the club has paid homage to his name by running an excellent facility.
The course, in an area that battles with water, is regarded with affection by many of the professionals golfers in South Africa and various rating bodies and is truly one of the hidden golfing gems in Southern Africa.
