Situated in the Fishhoek Valley, this parkland course is one of Cape Towns best golf courses for golf holidays in South Africa, boasting a unique combination of mountains, sea and lush fairways.
Known for its year round conditioning, the relatively short course possesses a unique character by virtue of its proximity to the sea. The dune lined fairways lead to excellent bent grass; while the many trees create shelter from the strong summer sea breeze.
The rolling computer-irrigated fairways complement visually pleasing water features, which impact the 1st, 10th, 15th and 17th holes. The signature hole is the 4th, a par-4 with out-of-bounds and a stream on the left, and a green guarded by a water hazard. The clubhouse presents a high vantage point not only of the 18th hole, but also the 1st and 10th which both feature sharp doglegs, to the right and left respectively.
We highly recommend this wonderful golf course for your South Africa golf holidays in Cape town.
Royal Cape Golf Club is a true championship course having hosted the South African Open and the SA Amateur Championships multiple times. The course has undergone extensive work to match the USGA standards and is now a fine test for golf holidays in South Africa.
South Africa’s oldest golf club emanates a rich history and tradition. With views of Table Mountain from most holes, this course offers a beautiful setting that will make yours South Africa golf holidays truly memorable.
The narrow fairways demand extreme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots can be heavily penalized amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered. There is also plenty of water on the course, especially at the corner of the 3rd, 4th, 5th and also the 14th, 15th and 16th. The most difficult holes are the par-4 3rd and the par-4 14th.
Rated among the top 3 golf courses to visit in South Africa, Steenberg, nestled in the crook of the Constantiaberg Mountains, lives up to its fame with a charming location. Designed by the eminent golf course architect Peter Matkovich, Steenberg follows his principle that good golf course architects “listen to the land”. Recently voted “Top foreign golf resort” by Conde Nast Traveller readers, Steenberg is one of the most prestigious golf courses for golf holidays in South Africa.
The greens on the course are especially laudable, but the quality of the fairways or the rest of the course is in fact, equally impressive. Signature holes are the 7th and the 14th. Large aprons around the greens are another special feature and the vineyards also provide a unique visual aspect, as well as a charming added hazard.
With five different tee positions the course can be enjoyed by all, from championship to junior level. This superb soft spike course is widely renowned as having the best greens in the Cape.
Named after the mountain range that runs along the garden route, this parkland resort course has aesthetically pleasing design features such as rivulets and colourful gardens. Like its neighbour, the Montague, it is in magnificent condition year round and is a prime location to play golf in South Africa.
Although set in the same surroundings as its better known counterparts, the Outeniqua has developed an individual personality rivalling the others. Excellent water features and creeks interspersed with uphill and downhill challenges and excellent bunkering (recently renovated) are all augmented in the charm and challenge by the colourful flora to be seen throughout the course.
The views from the fairways, the knowledgeable caddies and the quality of the course combine to make this a must play course when on a golf holiday in South Africa.
This modern course with a mature parkland feel, is considered one of the best-conditioned courses in South Africa. It is cleverly designed, picturesque, and presents an enjoyable challenge to all levels of golfers. One of our favourite courses, to play here you have to stay be a hotel resident. Serious golfers will love Fancourt and it is the ideal base for South Africa golf holidays.
The Montagu course is named after the mountain pass of the same name and is part of the original 27-hole design at Fancourt by the legendary Gary Player in the early 90s. This classic tree-lined parklands layout underwent a major facelift in 2005 under renowned Scottish golf architect David McLay Kidd.
The upgrade saw two completely new holes, the 1st and the 9th, redefined bunkers and greens and the introduction of several water features such as the dam. Celebrated for its immaculate, round the year conditioning, the Montagu GC is currently ranked at #6 in South Africa, prime location for golf holidays in South Africa (Golf Digest, 2014). The signature hole is the Par-3 17th, reminiscent of the 12th hole at Augusta National, the permanent home of the US Masters.
Designed by the legendary Gary Player and considered to be his design masterpiece, the Links at Fancourt recreates the classic courses of Scotland and Ireland in a typically South African setting with the majestic Outeniqua mountains serving as a dramatic backdrop.
Conceived on a former airport site, the resulting aura is that of a pure links layout in spite of its inland location, with only the climate and the mountains serving as reminders that the golfer is not in the British Isles. Having hosted the 2003 Presidents Cup (which ended in a dramatic tie between Tiger Woods and Ernie Els with Nelson Mandela in attendance) and the 2005 SAA Open, playing at The Links is a very, very special experience.
Possible the most difficult course in South Africa and also one of the most exclusive. If you want to include it in your South Africa golf holidays in Fancourt we recommend booking well in advance.
