Golf South Africa News: The boom of the South African Golf Industry
South Africa has always been synonymous with great natural beauty and a sport crazy population. Golf is one of the most popular sports in South Africa and it is no wonder that there are over 500 golf courses spread throughout the country. Each town has at least one golf course and one will be surprised to experience the quality of lesser known courses located in areas most people have not even heard of.
It is no wonder why South Africa has produced some incredible golfers, with the likes of major winners Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Trevor Immelman. Other young upcoming stars such as Richard Sterne, Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen are already making a name for themselves across the globe and is a testament to the growth of the game in South Africa.
||This unprecedented growth is coupled with the development of the industry as a whole. Millions of people flock to South Africa each year, many of whom are golfers, in order to experience first hand what this great country has to offer.|
Hotels and resorts have popped up everywhere while old stalwarts upgraded their facilities in order to remain popular under visitors. All these hotels and resorts boast golf courses of the highest standard and have also entered the international phenomenon of golf real estate.
What you get in South Africa is very similar to golf communities in the US, Spain or Portugal, i.e. a 5 star hotel complete with spa, restaurants and sports
facilities such as tennis and equitation - surrounded by a championship golf course (sometimes even up to 4 courses) with its own clubhouse and driving range; and topped off with a safe upmarket suburban area where children play in the streets and neighbours frequently get together for a braai or a glass of wine.
The only difference in South Africa is that on top of all this we have space and a very rich wildlife to add to the equation. Some golf resorts now boast private nature reserves where one can go on safari after your round of golf. This creates a lifestyle that no other location in the world can compete with and the fact that property is still very affordable compared US or European markets, it comes at no surprise that the golf real estate industry is booming in South Africa.
Coupled with the growing number of golf resorts and communities, the South African golf vacations industry is also stretching its wings. Travelling golfers are greatly spoilt for choice due to the mushrooming golf resort infrastructure. Golf tours to South Africa increase each year and the number of returning visitors testify to the incredible golf vacation experience on offer in South Africa.
||A typical South Africa golf holiday includes visits to internationally acclaimed locations such as Cape Town, the Cape Wine Route, the Garden Route and fabulous safari options at world renowned game reserves and national parks such as the Kruger Park, Pilanesberg, Addo and Hluhluwe Umfolozi. Many golf holiday-makers also include a stint at Africa's Kingdom of Pleasure - Sun City; or go off the beaten track in the Limpopo Province's Waterberg region or on the spectacular Westcoast.|
For many their relationship with this great country started as a golf vacation to South Africa and ended up in them buying their own part of Africa at stunning resorts such as Pearl Valley, Fancourt, Pezula, Simola, Blue Valley or Pinnacle Point.
We hope to also welcome you to our part of the world while you are on your very own South Africa golf tour.
No destination can combine the game with so much as golf in South Africa can. Friendly locals, divine cuisine and a great infrastructure make golf in South Africa an experience second to none. Golf South Africa or just come to explore, rejuvinate, relax and have the time of your life. Combine your South Africa golf vacation with wine tasting, scuba diving, hot-air ballooning, safari, deep sea fishing, white sandy beaches, mountain climbing, hiking etc etc.

Accommodation Quality Assurance
||The Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA) inspects standards in the hospitality and accommodation in the South Africa golf tours industry.
This voluntary grading system, which was launched in 2001, uses internationally recognised star insignia to rate accommodation establishments and will be extended to include relevant businesses in classified sectors of the South Africa golf tours industry. Once graded, establishments are encouraged to use the star system for marketing and advertising purposes.
Establishments are assessed according to the type of accommodation they provide. There are currently nine type of establishments:
B&B, guest house, hotel, self-catering, backpacker and hostelling, caravan and camping, country house, meeting, exhibitions, special events and restaurants.
Grading assessors undergo training to receive the National Certificate in Tourism Grading. Assessors are accredited with Theta and registered with the TGCSA before being recommended to the travel industry.
Larger hotel groups with their own internal assessors are also accredited with Theta. Independent auditors conduct random audits. These auditors also assist in ensuring that the assessors adhere to a code of conduct. This watchdog service has had a direct influence in the enhancement of the South Africa golf tours.
Star grading is the only system recognised by South African government and the TGCSA. Star gradings are displayed on most advertising material and at hotel entrances. Participation by hotels is voluntary and indicates a commitment to providing good service and regularly upgrading facilities. Star-graded establishments undergo annual quality checks to ensure that standards are maintained.
When planning your South Africa golf tours, we maintain a general level of 5 star properties in our packages with a reasonable representation of high-end 4 star establishments. All the hotels, private game lodges, guesthouses and resorts in our South Africa golf holidays network are regularly inspected by our travel experts and qualified golf tour guides.
