Wedgewood boasts a beautiful tree-lined 18-hole championship golf course, with generous fairways and a certain “country” ambiance. The course is widely recognised by the golfing community as one of the most stimulating and challenging golf courses in the Eastern Cape.
Totally redesigned and owned by Golf Data, our course now incorporates seven large new lakes covering 4ha of additional surface water on the front nine holes offering a visual treat for the adjacent residential properties. Golf Data has worked with some of the world’s premier golf design professionals and are notably the official representatives of the Nicklaus Design Company.
Our clubhouse, overlooking the 9th and 18th greens is a stunning double volume, get-your-cool-back space with comfy seating and plenty of space to unwind. The building is energy efficient and also hosts the ever-popular Monthly Family Market. We care about our surroundings and have included a state of the art fully automated irrigation system for tees, greens and fairways with treated effluent water. In addition, a return drainage system allows the course to re-use much of the run-off and seepage water from the course. The greens are A1/A4 Bentgrass, whilst the existing endemic grasses will be retained on the fairways and tees.
The original Wedgwood Park Country Club was the former host of the South African premier international golf tournament, the General Motors Invitational and has seen the likes of Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Seve Ballesteros, Peter Oosterhuis, Harold Henning, Hugh Baiocchi and Ernie Els grace its fairways over the years. The Club holds special memories for South Africa’s very own Gary Player, because it was at Wedgwood that Gary won his 100th professional tournament.
