GOLF COURSES PLAYED
De Zalze Golf Club
A Peter Matkovich designed course in the heart of South Africa's wine country. A pleasant parkland course with fairways surrounded by vineyards, olive groves & lavender fields. The Par 4 13th is the signature hole where one plays over the water while enjoying a marvellous view of the little lake. De Zalze Golf Club recommends that you "do not bite off more than you can chew".
Fancourt - Montagu Course
Originally designed by Gary Player, Fancourt’s Montagu course has developed into one of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts, earning it the number 8 position on Golf Digest SA’s list of top golf courses in the country. Exquisitely conditioned to provide a riveting golfing experience, this tree-lined course covers large tracts of varying terrain on rolling land.
Fancourt - The Links Course
Sculpted into what Gary Player has described as his greatest feat as a course designer. Featuring an undulating, windswept terrain and dune-style landscape, inspired by the links courses of the British Isles.
The Links is currently ranked as the number one golf course in the country by Golf Digest South Africa, and 38th in Golf Digest US edition’s list of the world’s 100 greatest golf courses.
Transformed from an airfield into an amazing piece of environmental and golfing heritage, The Links has hosted some of the most prestigious tournaments in the world, including the Presidents Cup (2003), the SA Open (2005) and the 2012 Volvo Golf Champions European Tour.
Pinnacle Point Golf Club
Overlooking the Indian Ocean and designed by Peter Matkovich and 2011 Open Champion, Darren Clarke, Pinnacle Point is one of the most unique and scenic golf courses in the world.
This Clifftop Fynbos Golf Course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breathtaking terrain. The 72 par layout is characterised by 7 majestic holes that line the Indian Ocean rock cliffs, four of which are played over ocean and cliff. All 18 holes have been designed to fit the contours of the land.
In both 2016 and 2017, Pinnacle Point was named South Africa’s Best Golf Course at the Annual World Golf Awards.
Pezula Golf Club
Set on the Knysna clifftops, with views of both the Knysna Lagoon and the Indian Ocean this Par 72 course designed by Ronald Fream and David Dale of GolfPlan USA have sculptured an incredibly diverse coastal terrain into a course that offers a total golfing experience for all players. It is designed to include a full range of shots, making it challenging and rewarding. Signature holes have been earmarked as the 13th and 14th.

Simola Golf Club
Simola is living proof of just how great Jack Nicklaus really is when it comes to designing with nature. Set in probably the most scenic town in Africa, situated lower than the ridges that surround it - and therefore untroubled by the wind that plagues so may coastal courses - and boasting an unusual configuration of five par-5s and five par-3s, Simola offers challenging and rewarding golf for pros and high-handicap players alike. Simola Golf Club proudly joins the ranks of the elite group of 200 internationally recognised Jack Nicklaus signature courses.
