Gambling and spectacular shows have been the drawcard for many visitors but the list of things to do in Sun City includes a variety of sporting and family activities making it an ideal location for couples, sportsmen, adventure seekers and families. 

Top class golf has been the mainstay of the Sun City sporting facilities and the world-acclaimed Gary Player Golf Course is home to the Million Dollar Golf Challenge which attracts top players and eager spectators. The second course, The Lost City Course is equally challenging and includes a water hazard guarded by two very large crocodiles. You have been warned!
