The Royal SwaziÂs spectacular 18-hole championship golf course is one of the most scenic locations found anywhere in the world.
The sweeping par-72 course is played on the championship tees to a length of 6,140 metres. It has been laid out on the slopes of the Lebombo Range which curve down into the Ezulwini Valley where a complex of hotels and a casino are situated. The first nine holes are comparatively level, and the second nine fully exploit the terrain.
Greens and fairways are in excellent condition and all the greens have been planted with Durban Country Club grass. This grass provides a thinner and therefore faster putting surface, and all meet PGA standards.
The fairways are planted with hardy kikuyu, which stands up well to constant use and remains relatively green throughout the year.
Challenging features on the golf course include lakes, out-of-bounds areas, gullies thick with vegetation, wickedly sited bunkers, swirling breezes and clusters of magnificent trees and indigenous plants.
