Special features - The course is set in the edge of the Kruger National Park, and incorporates much of the characteristics of the local area. The course winds among trees, bushes & grass land and includes several water hazards ranging from large lakes and ponds to brooks and streams set in rocks and cascading waterfalls. The signature hole would be Hole 13 a long Par 5 with a babbling brook on the left and the green framed against the Crocodile River with the plains of the Kruger national park beyond. The tournament back tee on Hole 15 is set high above the fairway and offers unbelievable views in all directions over the hills and National Park.

Other features
The course has many forms of wildlife on it:-
- A hippopotamus (named Harry) resides in the lake on Hole 16.
- Leopards are seen on the property in the evenings.
- Waterbuck, Bushbuck, Kudu, Impala & Giraffe all feature on and around the course.
- Crocodiles reside in the dam at holes 5 & 7 & 16.

- Dylan Lewis also creates a unique bronze trophy for the winner each year.
- The spectacular colonial style clubhouse sits behind the greens of 9 & 18 offering superb viewing for the Club members
