The beauty of these courses in my opinion is the way it was designed to compliment and accentuate nature. We have to embrace the beauty of nature that God created and these courses definitely do that.

And then with no surprise we proudly add South Africa to the list with non other than Leopard Creek. Gary Player designed the golf course in 1996. It is rare to find a course that meets expectations as much as Leopard Creek does in terms of its remoteness and isolation, its proximity to wildlife and the beauty of its surroundings. This course lies along the southern border of South Africa’s Kruger National Park (7 144yards: par 72).
Last but not least, step onto one of the most picturesque golf courses in Asia. The Nirwana Bali Golf Club in Indonesia with perfect warm tropical temperatures -perfect for a round of golf.
