Played 9 holes on this course. The course is very flat with wide fairways and surprisingly good green. Stimp 9.0. The reception vas very friendly and hospitable. Did not play my best golf but had a good time. My caddy, again did not give me good lines putting. Must be an African thing. The surroundings coulb do with some more vleaning up. Loved playing here however. Great…

The Clarens Golf Course
Had two rounds on this beautiful course. Personel was hospitable and friendly. The greens were top level. Stimp 9.8 & 10.5. The fairways were recovering well from a dry winter but not great yet. Great views and mountains all around. Wildlife (springbokkies) and birds made it even better. Sadly my caddy gave me some bad putting lines….

Bellville Golf
It's one of the Best Value for your Money courses around Cape Town. The 18 hole course is challenging. With almost every T off you are looking at a height difference hitting the ball at least 20 meters up or down to the fairway. With the first 9 holes, you get a great view over the area around Cape Town with mountains in the back. Greens are good enough. Not the best …

Wir waren in Oudtshoorn um die Straussenfarmen zu besichtigen, einen kurzen Abstecher zum Golf Club. Startzeitenbuchung ging relativ einfach und schnell am Telefon. Denke wird auch immer etwas frei sein außer es ist ein Turnier. Einfahrt ist im Vergleich zu den anderen Plätzen in Südafrika nicht gesichert, aber auch kein Problem. Parkplatz großzügig gestaltet. Es is…

Fancourt - Montagu CourseFancourt - Outeniqua Course
Outeniqua: meiner Meinung nach der einfachste Platz der drei Fancourt Gary Player Plätze und somit ein guter Start, die Bahnen haben eine angenehme Länge und auch ein verzogener Abschlag wird man meist noch finden. Das erste Loch befindet sich direkt am Clubhaus und eventuell hat man ein paar Zuschauer dadurch. Der Pflegezustand hätte tatsächlich nicht besser sein können…

Simon's Town
A small 9 hole course which will offer you nice sea views. It is quite short with 2080 Meters from the Men’s tee, but don’t expect it easy – I think it is windier than in any British Open. You will play it quickly in around 1 hrs and it will be a bargain for only €10. Good Start! Actually it is directly next to the parking space of the world famous Boulders BEach, where…

St Francis Bay Golf Course
This is a lovely golf course situated in the heart of the Village of St Francis Bay. Not a long course but every hole does make one think about the best strategy as far as tee shot and then the approach is mostly pretty challenging. The greens are always in great condition and the welcome at the Club is always hearty and one is made to feel a part of the family. The socia…

Atlantic Beach
Atlantic Beach Links has had a major renovation done to its clubhouse and Practice facilities in 2021. The golf course as a whole has recovered tremendously well since the drought in 2019, the fairways are lush and the greens are the very best in Cape Town currently. As a member of Atlantic Beach Links I highly recommend our course to visitors you will not be disappoint…

One of the most forgiving fairways i had ever played. The greens is a bit challenging, so you must really be able to read the green and be able to put. Anything less than a 2 put is a save. The Pro Shop is up to date with the latest technology. The only thing they need to improve on is the availability of Golf Carts.

Soweto Country Club Course
No Restaurant facility at all. The course is well maintained with its pro like greens. The best and fastest green this year. I am totally not happy with the pricing as far as green fees are concerned. They should make it much more affordable and cater for the Guys who usually support them. Please see if you can have them to drop the green fees especially during the week.
