The 1st hole starts your round in dramatic fashion. You tee off over a large ravine in front of the historic clubhouse. It sets the tone for demanding tee shots for most of the first seven holes. A lone oak tree defends the hole from the second shot; you get a sense immediately of the real test of the course.
The 5th hole features one of the most dramatic par three shots in golf. The green is located in a large bowl, from which the hole gets its name “Punchbowl”.
The 6th hole is another beautiful hole, this dog leg par 4 requires bravery and accuracy off the tee and a good drive cutting the corner will ensure you have a shorter shot into the green, which is protected by a stream running through the front.
The 10th is where the course gets its name and plays downhill, offering a great view of the green.
Gary Player’s favourite and certainly one of ours, the 11th hole known as “The Valley” will claim more victims than any other hole on the course. The stream winds its way around 11 of the holes on the Waterfall but influences this hole from start to finish. To get to the green in one piece is a great achievement and the walk to the 12th tee takes you round the back of the green through the woods and is a perfect moment to admire what you’ve just conquered!
The 13th is a brutal long par 5 with clever bunkering and a very steep approach to the green which offers a fantastic view of the forest.
The 18th hole is the most dramatic finishing hole around. It’s hard to describe the feeling from the tee; it’s best if you let us know what it feels like!
The Waterfall measures 6683 yards from the back tees.
