Did You Know?
Read these interesting facts about South Africa:

Sun City is nestled in the rolling hills of a dormant 1.3 million-year-old volcano named Pilanesberg, this is one of South Africa's most scenic locations.

Sun City was developed by the hotel magnate Sol Kerzner as part of his Sun International group of properties. It was officially opened on 7 December 1979.

At the time it was located in Bophuthatswana. As Bophuthatswana had been declared an independent state by South Africa's apartheid government (although unrecognized as such by any other country), it was allowed to provide 'immoral' entertainment (in the eyes of the South African government) such as gambling and topless revue shows, which were banned in South Africa, so it was very popular with South Africans.
Sun City has now developed into a great family and child freindly resort.

The Gary Player Country Club has bee voted as the best golf course in South Africa. During the first week of December it is home to the prestigious Nedbank Golf Challenge (formerly the Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Challenge), Africa's Open, The most significant restructuring of 'Africa’s Major' in its 32-year history will feature an increased 30-man field competing for a total purse of $6.5 million at the Gary Player Country Club – an increase of $1.5 million on the 2012 prize money. The first place cheque will remain $1.25 million, and last place will be worth $100 000.
The Lost City Golf Course is noted for the 38 live crocodiles in the water feature of the 13th hole. Sun City is a golfers Paradise.
