Nicklaus Design shines at South Africa's latest jewel: The Club at Steyn City in Johannesburg

The Club at Steyn City has aspirations to become South Africa’s next great private club. The new Nicklaus Design layout on the outskirts of Johannesburg opened April 1, 2015, after a long grow-in to ensure perfect conditions.
At the center of the massive parkland and real estate development is the spectacular palace of owner Douw Steyn, a South African insurance mogul. His “Palazzo Steyn” mansion—valued at $250 million, the most expensive in South Africa—sits high on a ridge with mesmerizing waterfalls cascading down from above.
The 7,054-meter golf course rides its rolling terrain gracefully. Ridges on certain holes keep players guessing at the proper line off the tee. The par-4 first and par-3 ninth holes cross the Jukskei River. Plenty of other water hazards come into play. The most interesting hole is No. 7, where a risk-reward downhill tee shot will flirt with a wandering stream. It’s drivable from the forward tees.
The most difficult par 4 is the 471-meter closer. If you hit the split fairway, a pond awaits on the approach.
