Pennington, Selbourne Golf Club
In 1985, dairy and sugar farmer Denis Barker decided to build a golf course on his land. And with the help of friends and his son Gary, the beautiful 18-hole Selbourne Golf course was created here.
Today, Selbourne is one of the best courses in Kwazulu Natal and a must when staying on the South Coast. It is a fairly short course where accuracy is very important, especially if you know that there are plenty of water features. The beautiful and well-maintained course is often called the ‘Augusta of South Africa’, decide for yourself whether it can bear that name!

Knysna, Pezula
To the east of Knysna, on the cliffs of the Atlantic Ocean, an 18-hole Championship course extends here. Built with the Gleneagles in the Scottish Highlands and Pebble beach on the Monterey coastline in mind, you will find endless fairways, fynbos and numerous bunkers here. The terrain is not easy to walk on and there are ‘panic golfcarts’ available for all golfers! There are 5 different Tee-off places on each hole, which makes it comfortable for players of all levels. The 3 holes laid out on the cliffs overlooking the ocean are the most special and also the most difficult holes. Don’t hit too hard and ‘out of bounds’, because then your ball will disappear over the cliffs …

Knysna, Simola
Seeing all the beauty on this course, you probably can’t keep your head cool. On the coast but out of the wind, that’s a special feature. Each hole is laid out in such a way that it blends in a natural way into the surrounding area. With a view of the Knysna lagoon, all the way to the Heads and over the Knysna river that slowly winds its way down, you might just lose focus on the game.
There are 5 Par 5 holes and 5 Par 3 holes, which adds a new dimension to your golf game.

Plettenberg Bay, Plettenberg Bay Golf Club

A magnificent golf course in a beautiful green environment that you will remember!
In 2000 the golf course was completely refurbished according to the USGA specifications. The new course shapes, slopes, bunkers and water features provide a challenging and still very beautiful golf course. The Parkland style of the golf course located within a nature reserve is the pride of the players of Plettenberg Bay.
The 470 meter long Par 5, 4th hole is extra long when the South Easter is blowing and then it is difficult for the average golfer to play the hole in 2 or even 3 times. The 11th hole, on the other hand, with its 110 meter length is the shortest in South Africa, so you can catch up on your score again!

Somerset West, Erinvale
At the foot of the Helderberg Mountains is one of South Africa’s most challenging golf courses. This is a course with 2 very different nines. The characteristic of the first 9 is that they are located on a flat part and the second nine climb the slopes of the mountain. The signature hole of this course is the Par 4, 17th hole that goes downhill. The view is breathtaking here and as a golfer you will enjoy the beautiful mountains but also the sea view on the False Bay.
