Eswatini which was formerly known as Swaziland is a small land locked country that is located in the Southern part of the African continent bordered by Mozambique in the eastern part while South Africa surrounds it from the South, north and West. The country is a former colony of England and when she gained her independence, it broke away from South Africa and became a distinct country on its own. Eswatini is best known for her unique culture, good landscape and the numerous parks and game reserves that are located in the different parts but besides the above, it is a top destination for tourists who want to engage in the different sports in the country like tennis, golfing and many more others.

We cannot talk about golfing in Eswatini without mentioning the capital city of the country where golf was first played. This is the largest city in Eswatini and is a home to many Swazi people. In the year 1923, the first people to play golf in Eswatini did so in Mbabane and although the golf course then was not as good and perfect as the current ones, it marked the beginning of golf playing in the country.

The first golf course in Mbabane was surrounded by trees and it was used until the outbreak of the Second World War when it was closed off. However after the war ended, the British govern contributed about 3000 rand for the re-opening of the golf course in Mbabane in the year 1947 and this was the beginning of a new era of the golfing clubs in Eswatini.

Although most of the golf clubs in Eswatini are small, they are still worth visiting and after the contribution towards the construction of the oldest golf course in Eswatini, the construction commenced and it was opened officially in 1949.
