Cape Town - There's no doubting Leopard Creek Country Club on the border of the Kruger National Park is appropriately named!
Combining flora and fauna - and golf - makes this week's European and Sunshine Tour co-sanctioned Alfred Dunhill Championship a favourite for many professionals.
And for 2017 season winner, South Africa's Brandon Stone, things got extra thrilling when one of the elusive members of the 'Big 5', the African leopard, was spotted in the dense bush - presumably not searching for lost golf balls.
Former professional and now respected commentator, Tony Johnstone, also took to Twitter to document the privilege he had of watching a leopard in a tree for a full hour.

Rather apt that the week of the Alfred Dunhill Champs @LeopardCreekCC we get the privilege of watching this beauty at close range for an hour in the Kruger Park. Hundreds of great photos from the sighting of a lifetime. pic.twitter.com/0rtQGYoq0V— Tony Johnstone (@TonyJohnstone56) November 26, 2019
