History of this Zambia golf club
This Livingstone Golf Club was built in 1908. It opened as a 9 hole golf course to supply entertainment and sport for the European settlers that first came to Livingstone. The layout of the course as it was is not known but it is certain that playing conditions were probably rough, although it did provide much good sport and links to the early pioneers of the game in Africa. In November 1910, His Royal Highness the Duke of Connaught and his wife the Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia visited the Club, and in 1925, the Prince Edward, then Prince of Wales, was hosted by the Club. This Livingstone golf course was redesigned in 1936 and then renovated in 2006. Peter Matkovich recently redesigned the full 18 holes.
