About Us

The EXPERIENCE becomes a reality!

Before the conception of the TELKOM BUSINESS GARY PLAYER GOLF EXPERIENCE the Vodacom World of Golf had “just another academy” as its teaching arm.

When the new name was under consideration, the word “experience” was the hope of becoming more than just another academy - a holistic game improvement solution of international class, committed to uplifting teaching norms in South Africa.

With great pride, the TELKOM BUSINESS GARY PLAYER GOLF EXPERIENCE can now announce that it has completed the circle with the launching of the GARY PLAYER GOLF FITNESS CENTRE & THE GARY PLAYER TECHLAB…


GARY PLAYER GOLF FITNESS CENTRE in collaboration with HPC, University of Pretoria

The first golf-specific physical training facility of its kind in SA, the GARY PLAYER GOLF FITNESS CENTRE at the VODACOM WORLD OF GOLF offers free basic golf functionality screenings to members. Based on a simple three-point assessment of essential ranges of motion specifically required to execute the golf swing, members are provided with a golf-specific training program, designed to improve the key areas of golf fitness, namely stability, mobility, balance and posture.

Members need only call or visit the GARY PLAYER GOLF EXPERIENCE hospitality desk (011 545 8618)  to make an appointment for their free screening with one of our GARY PLAYER GOLF FITNESS PROFESSIONALS, who are qualified in the fields of sports science and bio-kinetics and represent the collaboration between the Vodacom World of Golf and the High Performance Centre at the University of Pretoria. There is no doubt that this service provides new meaning to the MOREGOLF promise of “Helping friends play better golf” – it is now internationally accepted that golfers of all standards can vastly enhance their golfing capabilities with just three training sessions per week.

The CENTRE offers a range of additional products, such as a comprehensive, personalised golf fitness assessment and a private golf fitness consultation.
