Parys boasts two spectacular golf courses, both of them are situated on islands within the Vaal River, they are:
Parys Golf Course (Parys Golf & Country Estate)
One of the oldest golf courses in South Africa, the Parys Golf Course has been in existence since the late 1900′s.
The original golf course was redesigned in 2007 by Cobie Le Grange and now features internationally as a championship 18-hole golf course and as the Free State’s no. 1 course. World class facilities include Country Club Restaurant and Bar, putting and chipping greens, and a driving range.
Vaal de Gráce Golf Estate
The newer and stately Vaal de Gráce Golf Estate promises a novel kind of lifestyle experience, second to none. Besides exquisite housing and relaxation facilities to delight in, the estate also plays host to the first Nick Price Signature Golf Course in the country.
