This Parklands layout is a visual masterpiece with a jaw dropping safari element that is intrinsic to the rich, unadulterated lands of Limpopo. The championship golf course has an added achievement of being voted the best walking course in Africa in the Compleat Golfer Magazine.

After all, the course actually borders the Kruger National Park, although fencing does protect the property from elephant, rhino and buffalo. The golf course itself follows the natural gentle undulating terrain and the wide and well-maintained fairways are lined with a variety of trees and the natural dense bush typical of the area.

The Pearl Valley Golf Estate is enchantingly beautiful. Located between the magnificent Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountain Ranges, it shares its borders with two of the most wellknown and picturesque winemaking towns in the Cape – Paarl and Franschhoek. The estate as well as the course is post-card perfect in every sense of the word. From the vineyards and orchards that border the course to the mighty Berg River flowing through it to the mountainous backdrops of every hole, playing here is an experience that cannot be adequately described in words.

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus has used his abundant store of knowledge and experience in the game to develop the most visually spectacular golf course in the country. The design of the Pearl Valley Golf Course has received praises galore for its magnificent rich, deep, green all-season fairways and the clever use of dazzling water features, which often protect the splendid large and subtle bent grass greens. The bunkers, in true Nicklaus fashion, are shallow, long and relatively undaunting. Traversed by roads in only three places, with a state-of-the-art drainage system in place that allows play to continue just minutes after a severe downpour, the course is truly in a league of its own.

In 1999, nine new holes, known as the ‘Boschenmeer-nine’ were introduced. The resulting 27 holes, comprising The River Nine, The Paarl Nine and The Boschenmeer Nine, offer 3 18-hole options and a heady fusion of tree-lined fairways and challenging and visually spectacular water features, all leading to superb, large putting surfaces.

blessed with an abundance of trees and vineyard surrounds, the course commands a deserved reputation for its year-round quality and consistency.

Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront



Steenberg Golf Estate Golf Course

Constantia, Cape Town
Par 72 | Hole 18 | 6310 m

Rated among the top 3 golf courses to visit in South Africa, Steenberg, nestled in the crook of the Constantiaberg Mountains, lives up to its fame with a charming location. Designed by the eminent golf course architect Peter Matkovich, Steenberg follows his principle that good golf course architects “listen to the land”. Recently voted “Top foreign golf resort” by Conde Nast Traveller readers, Steenberg is one of the most prestigious golf courses in South Africa.

The greens on the course are especially laudable, but the quality of the fairways or the rest of the course is in fact, equally impressive. Signature holes are the 7th and the 14th. Large aprons around the greens are another special feature and the vineyards also provide a unique visual aspect, as well as a charming added hazard.

DAY 11: Golf at Royal Cape

  • Play 1x 18 holes golf at Royal Cape Golf Course (Includes Green Fee).

Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront.



Royal Cape Golf Course

Wynberg, Cape Town
Par 72 | Hole 18 | 5797 m

Royal Cape Golf Club is a true championship course having hosted the South African Open and the SA Amateur Championships multiple times. The course has undergone extensive work to match the USGA standards and is now a fine test of golf and worthy of its championship rating. South Africa’s oldest golf club emanates a rich history and tradition. There is good practice range near the clubhouse, and three practice nets. With views of Table Mountain from most holes, this course offers a beautiful setting that will make your visit truly memorable. The narrow fairways demand extreme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots can be heavily penalized amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered. There is also plenty of water on the course, especially at the corner of the 3rd, 4th, 5th and also the 14th, 15th and 16th. The most difficult holes are the par-4 3rd and the par-4 14th. The second nine offers quite a challenge for the average golfer: two challenging par 3s and a very magnificent par 4! The locals do not call it their own ‘Amen’ corner for nothing!
