Why Platinum Golf

The main objective of Platinum Golf is to organize tailor made golf tours to South Africa.  In doing so we want to offer our clients luxurious exclusivity, combined with flexibility, at a rate which reflects the chosen standard of golf courses, accommodation, sightseeing trips and travel. 

All tours are prepared with the guests’ personal preferences as our guidelines and all our clients are being treated as if they are only clients we ever had, offering personal assistance, guidance and exclusivity.  So, if you are looking for a made to measure golf tour to South Africa, which has been specifically put together for your group (whether your group exists of only 1 couple or 3 4-balls) you have found the right people. 

Your golf tour will be tailor made to your needs, wishes and budget.  Because flexibility is what we stand for: whether you are planning a weekend away or a 4-week holiday-of-a-lifetime we are here to make it happen!  From chauffeur driven guided tours in luxury vehicles with full programme for the non-golfer to self-drives throughout South Africa with extensive route descriptions and anything in between! 

Years of international experience in the hospitality industry and event management both in Europe as well as Southern Africa, combined with an efficient, healthy as well as practical approach to customer service will give you the peace of mind that you deserve. 

Local knowledge and expertise, fluency in English, Dutch and German (and a good knowledge of Russian) will make communication easy: we understand where you’re coming from; we’ll advise you where to go!

The Platinum Team is a dedicated, golf-loveing and service-oriented team headed by Erik Ekkelkamp and his wife Ypie Kingma.

Ypie is responsible for the marketing and sales of Platinum Golf.  She is a qualified tour guide and besides English and Dutch also speaks quite a bit of Russian.  When not touring or markting she is trying to get her 18-handicap down to single-figure – still a long way to go…


Erik is the computer and internet guru and puts most of the tours together.  Being 2 meters tall his nickname is ‘Big E’.  Originally from The Netherlands, he grew up very close to the German border, and his German is still very impressive!  In his spare time you can find him on the golf course – where else!?


Our dedicated team of freelance drivers and guide is fully qualified, and they all have their First Aid certificates.  They are used to dealing with guests from different nationalities, speak several languages and are a lot of fun to be with.  They all have cell / mobile phones with them for easy communication at all times.
