Our adventure golfer Ian Cross journeys to a great undiscovered destination for the intrepid traveler and golfer alike – South Africa. First up he visits the Hans Merensky Golf Club where you can quite literally combine the country’s number one attraction, safari, with golf. Ian comes face to face with giraffes and zebras strolling on the course!
Only five hours drive south from the club, but a million miles away in terms of lifestyle, is Soweto, the most famous township in South Africa. Here Ian visits the Soweto Country Club which was the only place black South Africans could play golf during the apartheid era. Now, blacks and whites play there side by side. He then visits a moving reminder of these times, the Apartheid Museum, in Johannesburg.
After a flight down to Cape Town, Ian takes a ride to the vineyards of Stellenbosch to indulge in one of his favorite pastimes – wine tasting – before playing the Pearl Valley Country Club.
