Leopard Creek Country Club
Malelane, Mpumalanga Province
Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek, for much of the water is home to families of hippos and the magnificent creatures for which the river is named, crocodiles. Extensive use has been made of water features and sightings of crocodile, hippo, antelope, warthogs, buffalo and elephant are commonplace, either on the course or in the Kruger Park bordering the course. The 552 yard par-5 13th signature hole is one of Leopard Creek’s most memorable. Here the green is right on the edge of the Crocodile River but 35 yards above the level of the water, offering magnificent views up the river and into the Kruger Park.
