The course was carved out of undulating and rocky terrain. With the wide fairways and receptive greens it is a fantastic golf experience. The Lost City golf course covers more than 100 hectares and incorporates 28 000 square metres of water features.
It is a desert-style golf course with spectacular views across the bushveld. Unique to this 72 par track are the crocodiles at the 13th hole, which make this one of the most unusual golf resorts in South Africa.
The desert style design of the golf course has an exotic allure all of its own and designer Gary Player has acknowledged it as one of his favourite courses.
The Lost City Golf Course is flexible: playing off the back tee to a course length of 6 983 metres.
Playing the back nine at Lost City Golf Course is like going on a golf safari. It has often been noted that the game is more exciting when played downhill and this is certainly the case here.
The most hazardous area of the Lost City Golf Course is the 13th hole. Inhabiting the water hazard are Nile crocodiles.
In addition to the previously mentioned 13th, holes eleven, fourteen, fifteen and sixteen are all played from elevated tees and thus offer a challenge.
Golfers are discouraged from retrieving their wayward balls from the croc infested pool. No effort was spared to make the course a masterpiece.
