Golf in Sabie and Experience the Country Club
Sabie Country Club is the ideal spot for all your special events. Whether it’s a conference, wedding or party, Sabie Country Club will strive to make your event a unique and memorable one.
The Sabie Country Club hosts a truly picturesque and challenging regulation 9 hole golf course, the only golf course located in the town of Sabie proper. At our golf course, we put an emphasis on fun and family. We encourage our patrons to come and enjoy a round of golf, a cold drink and a great meal in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Golfers most commonly define the Sabie Country Club as a “fun place” to visit and play golf. The layout is set at the foot of the Drakensberg mountain range with beautiful views. Only 50km from Nelspruit, 45km from Haziview and 40 km from White River makes this a great stopover for an enjoyable round of golf, bowls or a game of squash, and the best food in Sabie, including a warm welcome to all visitors. The Kruger National park is just 60km away with Phabeni Gate as your gateway to the biggest game park in Africa. Mountains provide a backdrop to one of the most beautiful settings the Lowveld has to offer.

Want a challenge? Then try golf. It seems ridiculously easy – hit a little white ball with a club into a hole. If only it was that simple!
Who would have guessed that this pastime would captivate millions of people and develop into a multi-billion-dollar, worldwide sport with several professional tours operating around the globe?
Whether you want to pit your skills against a course that has held a European PGA sanctioned tour event or just enjoy a leisurely afternoon’s golf, you can find a course to suit your needs.
Being a sport that focuses more on skill than strength, the game offers exercise, great surroundings outdoors and the constant challenge of pitting your wit and strategy against both natural and man-made elements like wind, trees, bunkers and water holes.
A word on Golf:
Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five. ~John Updike
If profanity had an influence on the flight of the ball, the game of golf would be played far better than it is. ~Horace G. Hutchinson
I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game: it’s called an eraser. ~Arnold Palmer
There is a mind-boggling array of equipment on offer for the seemingly basic task of hitting a ball into a hole. Huge industries spend big money on research to produce the ultimate golf club and golf ball that in turn will enhance your golf game.
However, you don’t need the latest equipment to enjoy the game. A variety of clubs (woods, irons and a putter), some golf balls and golf tees and a golf bag to put everything in will set you up to take on your selected golf course.
Golf is a very safe sport – as long as a few basic, common-sense rules of safety are followed. When those rules are ignored, injuries can occur. Golf involves the swinging of metal clubs, which propel golf balls at high speeds. If you’re in the way of either the clubs or the balls, you’re in danger. You could be placing yourself in danger, too, if you do not respect the power of the sun, the danger of lightning, or your body’s need for the right kind of fluids on warm days.
Address: A golfer “addresses” the ball when he stands ready to swing with the club head resting just behind the ball.
Birdie: When the golfer scores one stroke under par for the hole.
Bogey: When the golfer scores one stroke over par for the hole.
Divot: is a piece of the turf displaced during a swing at the ball.
Eagle: When a golfer scores two strokes under par on a hole.
Handicap: this is the term used for the ranking given to a golfer and is used when competing. The golfer deducts his handicap from his total score in order to bring all golfers playing onto an even level.
The exact origins of golf are shrouded in the mists of time, but it is generally accepted that the game of golf as we play it today, originated in Scotland.
Golf courses have not always consisted of 18 holes. As early as the 15th century, golfers at St. Andrews established a customary route through the undulating terrain, playing to holes whose locations were dictated by topography. The course that emerged featured eleven holes, laid out end to end from the clubhouse to the far end of the property. One played the holes out, turned around, and played the holes in, for a total of 22 holes
