Garden Route golf

The sunny weather and stunning nature make Cape Town a popular golfing destination. No wonder the country has so many golf champions! If you fancy teeing off towards Table Mountain, there are plenty of options and a variety of spectacular greens in the immediate surroundings.

Some of the best and most beautiful courses in South Africa are located along the Garden Route, a picturesque region that runs from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth in the East Cape. Many of the courses were designed by renowned golf architects. A golf buggy may be superfluous: there’s nothing more enjoyable than walking from one hole to the next and enjoying views of the impressive mountains and vast ocean.

Golfing at the beautiful Arabella

Views of the Kogelberg nature reserve

The golf course of the Arabella Country Estate is the first on the Garden Route from Cape Town. The 18-hole course was designed by the famous designer Peter Matkovich and is one of the best in the nation. The views are equally marvellous: golfers look out over the Kogelberg nature reserve, a calm river and a clear-blue lagoon. Challenges include many tricky obstacles consisting of sand and water. Play to the end of the course for the ultimate reward: the 18th hole has won the title of the best final hole in all of South Africa!

Sea breeze on The Links

Near the coastal town of George, you’ll find the Fancourt Golf Estate which features various courses, each with their own unique character. The Links at Fancourt, for example, is extremely challenging, designed, among others, by Gary Player, one of South Africa’s most famous golfers. Building the fairways took no less than 700,000 cubic metres of soil to create a perfect rolling landscape and the result is a true masterpiece. This course always comes with a brisk sea breeze, making a hole-in-one even more of a challenge!
