Gary Player image

Perhaps the most successful golfer of his generation, Gary Player is one of only five golfers ever to win the Career Grand Slam of Golf, (along with Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods.)

A courageous style of play fired by a fiercely competitive nature, an always courteous demeanour and a penchant for black attire on the golf course have given rise to the name by which Gary Player is known throughout the world— The Black Knight.

His nine Major titles include three Masters, three British Opens, (spanning three decades), two PGA Championships, and one US Open. Among his more than 150 titles from around the globe are 21 PGA Tour victories. Equally successful has been his playing career on the PGA Senior Tour - his 22 titles include three PGA Senior Championships and two US Senior Opens.

Beauty and Tranquility

Gary Player currently devotes a great deal of time to designing world-class golf courses that are both challenging and a pleasure to play. His credo for golf architecture is beauty and tranquility, an objective which is the hallmark of all elements at Soma Bay. He believes in a course with an interesting mix of shots that tests the imagination and strategic skills of all levels of golfers.
