Welcome to Sishen Golf and Country Club
Situated on the outskirts of the town of Kathu in the Northern Cape Province, this
is truly a unique setting in which to play a round of golf - the course winds its
way through a 500 hectare Camelthorn forest on the edge of the Kalahari Desert.
Built and maintained by Sishen Iron Ore mine and officially opened in 1979, this
is the last course designed by Robert (Bob) Grimsdell, which he unfortunately could
not see completed. Considering its surroundings, its lush green fairways and greens
have surprised many a visitor to this arid region.
About the location
Being situated off the beaten track, the course is blissfully un-congested and visitors
are always assured of getting a game here. Sishen's par 72, 18 hole course is currently
highly rated amongst the various rating bodies and is truly one of the hidden golfing
gems in Southern Africa.
The course is approximately 6450 meters long, and has a rating of 72. With the large amount of Camelthorn trees on the course, it makes for a spectacular view and game. The player is always amazed at our lush forest within the Kalahari desert.
