Played a round of golf here. The course was nice and in good shape, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed concerning the views. The personnel were nice and everything worked out very well though. The course is rated very high among South African courses, but I have to say I don't quite understand why, I have... More

Two other tables have arrived since we sat down. Both have been given menus and service, both two tables away from us, and we just sit here with not even a hint of service.

A great golf course beautifully designed by The Golden Bear Himself. The course was in pristine condition. A must play if you are in the area.
