Royal Cape Golf Course – Cape Town
With lovely views of Table Mountain from most holes, this championship course offers a beautiful setting that will make your visit truly memorable. Extensive work was done on the greens in 2000 to bring them up to the USPGA standards and the course today is a fine test of golf and worthy of its championship rating. Essentially it is a very at parkland course, well maintained and a pleasure to play with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. But don’t be deceived by its apparent easiness. The fairways are narrow, demanding ex-treme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots can be heavily penalized amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered.
Steenberg Golf Estate – Cape Town

Clovelly Country Club – Cape Town
Nestled in the pristine and tranquil Silvermine Valley close to Fish Hoek, lies Clovelly Country Club. With one of the nest golf courses in South Africa, Clovelly offers its members and visitors a memorable experience. Clovelly - like fine Cape wines - improves steadily with age, and its vintage and quality is well established throughout South Africa, and indeed, beyond our shores. This reputation is founded on the warmth of Clovelly’s “family” character, its outstanding facilities, and steps we have taken, such as opening the Club to all irrespective of race, creed or gender, to ensure that Clovelly truly reflects the high ideal of its motto: “Fraternitas Ludorum”.
Pearl Valley Golf Estate - Paarl
Spanning some 212 hectares of prime Cape Winelands real estate, Pearl Valley Golf Estates is an exclusive 500-home residential development surrounding a magnificent 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. This spectacular course provides one of the top golf experiences in South Africa – and one of the best in the world. Pearl Valley Golf Estates was recently rated the ‘5th Best Golf Course in South Africa,’ by Golf Digest and received a ‘5 Star Golf Experience,’ by Complete Golfer.
Erinvale Golf Club – Somerset West
Gary Player was the designer of the course and little of his immaculate challenges has been altered. The first nine holes are on the low, at part of the estate and the second nine are on high, undulating ground. This will give you two different feels, but there remains a common thread – that is the standard of the superbly shaped greens, with truly consistent putting surfaces. The 1st hole, a dogleg right epitomises the Erinvale experience. You can choose a safe line straight off the tee leaving a long second to an elevated green well protected by bunkers and water to the right. The first two holes are excellent holes. However, be assured that the experience and scenery around the other 16 will be cherished by the participants in the South African Airways Open as well as those of who get to play on this superb layout in the Winelands.
Atlantic Beach Golf Club – Melkbos Strand
Enjoy the Championship Links style Golf Course with its traditional style and a cooling breeze off the ocean. Play your normal lofted shot on calm days, and use the firm turf on windy days to play low running shots, beneath the wind. Either way, be assured that you will enjoy the challenge around this 18-hole golf course. Atlantic Beach Links Golf Courses have been built with a serious commitment to the preservation of the indigenous fauna and flora. Compared to other golf courses in Cape Town, on completion of your 18 holes around the course you will agree that it is the combination of good golf in unsurpassed natural surroundings that make Atlantic Beach’s Links Golf Course a unique golfing experience.
Milnerton Golf Club - Milnerton
Milnerton Golf Club (MGC) has evolved from a six-hole course at its inception in 1913 into the world-class 18-hole championship course that it is today.
It provides a gol ng experience unique to South Africa: Built on sea sand, MGC believes to be the only true links course in Africa.
Some of the original holes were retained, while others were completely rebuilt. The new layout, together with all its features, has proved to be a huge success.
