South Africa Golf Holidays - Legend Golf & Safari Resort

The Legend Golf & Safari Resort is situated 3 hours from Johannesburg in the malaria-free Waterberg Region of South Africa. The Legend Golf and Safari Resort consists of an exceptional golf course set within the 22,000ha private Entabeni Safari Conservancy.  The resort has become famous for its Extreme 19th hole making it another must-visit destination for South Africa golf holidays.

Over shadowed by the dramatic Hanglip Mountain, the scenery is breath taking.The golf resort is separate from the main game reserve where Big 5 animals roam free, but the golf resort has a large resident population of plains animals, such as antelope which frequent the golf course and the bushveld surrounding the accommodation.

The Resort includes an 18 hole championship golf course, a 10 hole par 3 'Tribute' course, a golf academy, a driving range, recreational facilities, a wellness centre, a "Field of Legends" sports complex as well as a restaurants. 

The Legend Golf Resort is perhaps best known for the extreme 19th hole. Reached by helicopter, golfers have a chance to hit the African shaped green located 430 metres below. A hole in one on this par 3, will win you $1million!


The main championship course has been designed by 18 PGA Tour professionals, each contributing one hole design. Players such as Sergio Garcia, Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie have all been involved, using years of their experience on the PGA tour to test your golfing skills.

At 6744 metres, this is one of the longest courses in the world, and boy, won't you know it as you crawl up the 18th fairway! Elevated greens, extensive bunkering and beckoning water hazards all add to the misery/pleasure of this course. Each tee box features a map of the hole and information about its designer, so you will know who to thank or blame depending on how you play the hole!

The complex houses a variety of restaurants and bars, from coffee shops to the elegant Golf Terrace Lounge which runs the full length of the Clubhouse. Breakfast, lunch, bar meals and drinks are served here and there is also full showering, toilet and changing facilities. There is a small pro shop for the obligatory souvenir polo shirts and caps!

Golf carts and a halfway house snack are included and Ranger Caddies are available to hire. The course is reasonably flat if you want to stretch your legs and walk a bit.

Accommodation is in 5* lodge rooms located in small blocks of 4, around the estate. The accommodation is quite spaced out around the reserve, so complimentary transfers are provided to anyone without their own car, to the restaurants and the golf clubhouse. (More info is available in our accommodation section.)

The Legend Courses can be played as part of our Waterberg Golf and Safari Holiday along with golf at 3 other courses in the region, including the superb Elements Course.
