Legend Golf and Safari Resort

The Legend Golf and Safari Resort is situated 3 hours north of Johannesburg in the malaria-free Waterberg Region of South Africa. The resort consists of a top class golf course set within the 22,000ha private Entabeni safari conservancy. Over shadowed by the dramatic Hanglip Mountain, the scenery is breath taking.

Legend offers a unique concept combining safari with golf and it is possible to enjoy both activities in the same day. You can opt to stay at one of the five safari lodges or at the golf resort. 

Guests staying at the Golf Resort can use the golf and sports facilities there, or can opt to go on game drives into the neighbouring Entabeni Safari Conservancy. It is also easy to combine a few nights at the Golf Resort with a stay at one of the 5 safari lodges located on the conservancy.

The golf resort is separate from the main game reserve where Big 5 animals roam free, but the resort has a large resident population of plains animals, such as antelope which frequent the golf course and the bushveld surrounding the accommodation.

The complex includes an 18 Hole championship golf course, a 10 hole par 3 'Tribute' course, a golf academy, a driving range, recreational facilities, a wellness centre, an endangered species breeding programme which you can visit. The resort is perhaps best known for the extreme 19th hole. Reached by helicopter, golfers have a chance to hit the African shaped green located 430 metres below.  

The championship course has been designed by 18 PGA Tour professionals, each contributing one hole design. Players such as Sergio Garcia, Bernhard Langer and Colin Montgomerie have all been involved, using years of experience on the tour to test your golfing skills.

The complex houses a variety of restaurants and bars, from coffee shops to the elegant Golf Terrace Lounge which runs the full length of the Clubhouse. Breakfast, lunch and Bar meals and drinks are served here and there are full showering and changing facilities.

Accommodation is in 5* lodge rooms located in small blocks of 4, around the estate. The rooms are large and spacious with a modern African feel. The rooms have a small lounge area and a private patio. The rooms have satellite tv and direct dial telephones. The large modern bathrooms have a huge bath and a separate shower, that any aching golfer will enjoy. The accommodation is quite spaced out around the reserve, so complimentary transfers are provided to anyone without their own car, to the restaurants and the golf clubhouse.

In our opinion: Anyone but the most focussed golfer would enjoy staying at the safari lodges more, where all meals are included as well as the game viewing activities. However this is more expensive than if you stay at the golf resort which is on a B&B basis.
