Toughest course I've played at

This is very tough course because the deep rough is impossible. As in it is so dense that you cannot walk into it let alone see your ball (or find it). We played on a Saturday... read more

Played this course in a howling gale , ball blowing of greens . Commented to pro shop at end of the round and they were disinterested. Course in poor condition would not rush back , wind is normal .

Played today. Course better than I remembered. Greens first class possibly the best I've played in the region. Given its proximity to the sea wind is inevitable. However the layout of the course does little to encourage higher handicapped golfers. Several of the holes are blind drives, and the scrub area either side of the fairways is out of play.... More

This is very tough course because the deep rough is impossible. As in it is so dense that you cannot walk into it let alone see your ball (or find it). We played on a Saturday and it took over five hours. There was just too much hold-up. Two suggestions: 1. The course should limit the number of players they... More

Lovely golf club with great views, challenging course but manageable. Lovely breeze of the ocean. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Been here regularly last year but the quality of their food has really gone backwards. The lasts 2 visits the pulled pork and today all the chicken burgers was dry and tasteless. The staff also does not look happy anymore. My guess is there must have been a change in management... last year we were there at least once a... More

Facilities are great, staff very helpful and prices are ok for a golf resort! The course is very difficult, try to play when the wind is calm, otherwise it's very demorilising to play. We came off after 10 holes having taken nearly 4 hours to thàt point! We spoke to management to ask why they were so slow but got... More

Close to a beautiful beach in a well maintained surrounding. The fairways are appealing and challenging. Friendly staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Not a bargain course (exclusive the balls lost). In high season booking ahead required. As everywhere in SA there are competition days. Don't play in front of a competition if you're not a really good and fast player.

2 very nice restaurants one down stairs and one upstairs quite up market but reasonable prices in both, we had beef and chicken burgers and fish, all of which was very good, a nice selection of wines as well, definitely worth a visit for breakfast or lunch.

In pro shop you can buy a golf balls for 5 rands ( not a bad quality ) Why you should buy minimum 5 balls ??? Driver over the bushes ! All around the fairways bushes ! Wind from the ocean ! Enjoy but play with concentration.

Starting already at the gates, friendly staff taking care of you. Nice clubhouse with all necessary facilities. The course is very well taken care of. Lots of staff working on the course (that was the only drawback that you sometimes felt a little bit worried about hitting sombeody...). Very nice layout with more or less every hole in its own...
