Oubaai is a very good golf course. Nicely laid out and with some very tough holes to try and negotiate. The carries aren't huge on a lot of the holes which makes it ideal for higher handicap players. The final three holes are really spectacular the 18th specifically will leave you breathless and glad for a drink in the bar... More

This course, designed by Ernie Els, has to be on your must play list in Sth Africa. The service is great. The course was in immaculate condition. The layout is not too hard and should suit most levels of golfers. The green were in terrific condition. The staff in both the halfway house and the clubhouse were happy and welcoming.... More

Had a great day on this golf course today. Weather was beautiful and the course was very quiet so it was definitely "millionaire golf". Hardly saw anyone else. Everything in pristine condition - course, buggies, all the staff working very hard to ensure that we had fun - and we did. We saw a heron, about 10 feet away, and... More

Located on the outskirts of George near Herolds Bay. The first Ernie Els designed course in South Africa. Opened in 2005. A great game of golf awaits and golfer of any ability. Have fun and Enjoy!!

Oubaai Golf Course is probably one of the most beautiful in the country in terms of views and the course itself. This Ernie Els design is top-class all year long in terms of conditioning which is very nice. It provides an immense challenge of physical and mental strength when the wind gets up. The restaurant and halfway house have great... More

We booked a table for 15 people for an engagement party. When we got there they forgotten about our booking and weren't expecting us and put all 15 of us into a tiny little room with no air conditioning. Not only this but the staff were awful. They didn't know what they were doing or how to serve us. They... More

Much has happened to the course since we played it several years ago. If course it has matured nicely but also visitors are now able to start on the first tee rather than the 10th and therefore play the course the way in which Ernie Els designed it. 16,17 and 18 are by far the best holes and the rapid...
