Sakabula Golf Club, situated in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, is an 18 hole, par 73 course
consisting of two very distinct and different 9 holes. The first 9 holes traverses an
undulating valley providing breathtaking scenic views over the Drakensberg Range. The
second 9 holes wind along a stunning natural watercourse and wetland area with numerous
dams. The two 9's are so interestingly different in character and challenges that the
golfer can experience what normally could only be found on two different golf courses.
Sakabula Golf Club has several interesting features including a large indigenous paperback
thorn tree that stands on the 14th green. The long 500 metre par 5 at the 5th hole, all
uphill, is considered a real test of stamina by many golfers. The 10th hole tee start is
managed by a traffic light that is manually switched back to green by the golfer as he
clears the area that was unsighted from the tee box.
