golf  in cape town

golf cape town

South Africa boasts a superb climate that allows you to play golf in the sunshine all year round.  

While there are well over 400 courses in the country, with a number ranking in the world’s top 50, we have hand-picked our top 15 to give you experiences as diverse as the South African landscape itself.

It’s a country where golf is steeped in tradition with its oldest club “The Royal Cape”, located a few miles south of Cape Town in Wynberg, holding the very first South African Open Championship back in 1910.  If it’s a slice of golfing history that you are after, The Links at Fancourt rated No. 2 is a must.  It was here, as dusk approached, that Tiger Woods and Ernie Els went head to head over the dramatic final holes of the 2003 President’s Cup.

Other courses near Cape Town include Arabella, Clovelly, Pearl Valley and Steenberg.

Further north, near Johannesberg, there’s Leopard Creek.  Set in the bushveld adjoining the southern border of the Kruger National Park, there are many reasons to play this exclusive course. It is designed by Gary Player and is the country’s No. 1 course, but what really sets it apart is that here, you are more likely to encounter a giraffe or “Harry” the hippo than other golfers.

Or experience the elegant charm of a bygone era at The Durban Country Club, or revel in the drama of the Gary Player Country Club at Sun City. Choose South Africa and you choose a world-class golfing destination with a long, proud golfing heritage.

We’ve played all of the top 15 courses we have selected, and many others too.  We can therefore design for you and your friends the perfect golfing holiday to this magical destination.
