Tzaneen Golf Course is situated 10 km outside Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province, South Africa.
The course is an 18-hole, 72 Par Bushveld golf course with Indigenous Fairways and Greens. The course is 6 308 meters in length and was designed by J Bullock. It was first established as a nine hole golf course in 1960 when the Hans Merensky Trust donated the grounds to the Tzaneen Club. In 1964 the second nine holes were added and are today known as the back nine.
The front nine holes have long curving fairways, perfect for players with long drives, while the back nine boasts trickier slopes and angles giving the game a bit more edge. The courses two sides create a unique challenge, yet still cater to all levels of golfers. The course is a picturesque beauty, a little undiscovered gem with towering green mountains as a back drop.
