Golf is not a dangerous game, generally. Sure, sand traps can be vexing and some golfers have difficulties in the rough, but the game is pretty safe. There are exceptions, however. The golf courses on this list are downright dangerous, and we’re not talking about spinning windmills on a putt-putt course dangerous, but real, life-threatening danger.
Lost City Golf Course, Sun City, South Africa
When Steven Van Zandt sang, “I ain’t gonna play Sun City,” in his 1985 protest song against aparthied, he was not talking about golf. He could have been if he had ever played a round at the Lost City Golf Course in Sun City, South Africa. The views are breathtaking for sure, but so are the Nile crocodiles that make their home in the 13th hole water hazard. They can literally take your breath away with a death roll.
