Guavaberry's convenient location, natural beauty and challenging features make it one of the most impressive achievements of the designer and golfer Gary Player.
Gary Player, with his particular swing, is the most successful international golfer of all the times.
He was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1935. He has won nine Major Championships: three times the Master of Anguish (1961, 1974, 1978), as well as the British Open (1959, 1968, 1974). The PGA Championship (1962 & 1972) and achieved an US Open in 1965.
Gary Player at only 29 years old achieves what only five players in the world have managed to do, the four Grand Slam Golf tournaments.
A total of 163 titles around the world including 9 Major titles, 24 official PGA victories and nine Major League titles on the PGA Champions Tour show Player's successful career.
He is nicknamed the Black Knight for wearing black in his tournaments and Mr. Fitness for staying in excellent physical condition, entered the hall of world-wide fame in 1974.
Player is also a renowned golf course architect, with over 300 design projects worldwide; of which Guavaberry is one of his most extensive and spectacular designs.
Gary Player himself engages in the conceptualization, master plan, design, and promotional efforts of each field that his design team creates. As he says, "There is no substitute for personal contact."
That personalized touch is evident in all its fields, including Guavaberry, where each hole has five outlets to accommodate the level of each player. In short, the challenge is there but in an environment of fair competition.
Gary Player Design also specializes in incorporating natural elements into the landscaping of each field. At Guavaberry the rock formations, native vegetation, and water passages form an integral part of the complete golf experience.
When you play at Guavaberry or any other Gary Player golf course, you will appreciate the personal touches that make each course memorable and memorable.
