2020 National Golf Braai Festival

Welcome to the very first National Golf Braai Festival!

The National Golf Braai Festival will take place in Nelspruit from 20-25 September 2020.

We will be camping at Lakeview Lodge & Caravan Park, which is about 8km from Mbombela (Nelspruit) Golf Club.

All 4 Rounds of Golf will be played at Mbombela GC.

The Mission:

To Create ‘Gees’ among all Saffas taking Part in this epic annual Festival!

How do we do it?

By gathering around the fires every night with Live Entertainment, waking up to the fresh ‘bushveld’ air, having a Amarula Coffee when you wake up, being out on the golf course every day and then repeat what you did the previous day, for the rest of the week!
