Zebula Golf Course is a classic bushveld par 72 course, 6,445 metres long, set in the open plains of a reserve with herds of game roaming freely. The course is relatively flat Â somewhat undulating Â inviting to play with generous fairways and clusters of trees that act as hazards.
Voted the Golf DigestÂs Best New Golf Course 2004 and awarded the five-star Golf Experience for 2010 by Compleat Golfer, Zebula has matured well over the past few years into a great course to play.
Zebula was designed by the world-respected golf course designer Peter Matkovich. When it comes to golf course design, first and foremost Matkovich is an environmentalist Â seamlessly blending nature and design to create golf courses that are inherently sensitive to local environments. In fact, love for the indigenous remains a cornerstone of his designs; to him, golf should offer a retreat, an escape, from oneÂs busy life.
The layout, built to USGA specifications with kikuyu fairways and bent grass greens is so much part of the bushveld experience that one wouldnÂt be surprised to encounter a lofty giraffe or a shy zebra or two during the round. The wonderful year-round climate and the judicious use of naturally occurring water practically guarantees the course will be green year round.
