27 holes, so a good chance of getting a game. Men's comps on Wed from 11h30. Ladies comp on Tue from 11h30 & mixed comp on Saturdays from 11h30. Current special of R100 / 10Euro / 10 USD for 9 holes after 16h00. You do not have to be a member of a club. Hire clubs and golf buggy. Gets dark about 19h00. Lovely views of sea & mountains from the tees & greens. Ample caddies available. Abundant fynbos & proteas. Tame geese and abundant bird-life. Baboons often forage on the course , however baboon monitors protect you. Challenging course with almost all greens elevated, so take an extra club. Excellent clubhouse with ample food at halfway or on the veranda after the game. Bar well stocked. Driving range , chipping facility , huge practice putting green and bunker practice area. 3 Marshalls are on duty to assist & guide you. The pro-shop is also well-stocked and 3 professionals are available if you require some lessons.

Because of course maintenance and a latish tee time ( around 9) we were unfortunately unable to play 18 as needed to leave tee times for a ladies competition. There had been heavy rain before hand but course coped well with the deluge. Greens had been heavily sanded but this did not detract from a thoroughly enjoyable morning. Very well stocked pro shop and reasonable price for the green fees ( they allowed a reduction because of the course work). Friendly welcome. A testing course with some tricky narrow fairways.

Unfortunately we visited when SA Amateur Open was taking place so only nine holes available for general play. The club was able to fit us in so we had several rounds over holes nineteen to twenty seven. Very friendly staff on the course and in the clubhouse.

The course is nice and well architected, mostly well maintained. As first time players we missed signs directing us to the next tee as well as depicting the holes (19-27). The pull carts were just ok with squeaky wheels. The staff not friendly, neither in the pro shop nor in the halfway house. With rank 42 on the GolfDigest list I think this course is overrated.

Thank you for taking the time out to give us your positive, as well as constructive comments.
The lack of directional signage is currently being looked at. We would like to point out that we are however reluctant to erect too much signage on the golf course as this detracts from the natural beauty of the course.

Your feedback regarding the squeaky wheels of the pull carts has been brought to the attention of our resident Professional, who manages the pull trolleys.

We value our many returning golfers and it is certainly our aim to provide a professional, friendly and welcoming service. It is therefore vital that we receive feedback in order to continuously advance in everything that we do.

We have addressed the unfriendly temperament you experienced at our Club with our pro shop as well as our halfway house staff and we look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future to truly experience the Hermanus Golf Club as it should be.

Not without its challenges, but this is a great members course where they are also welcoming to visitors. Lovely to play of fairways with lush grass, some harsh hang ups around the green, but a lovely course with some great views and just enough challenge to keep that balance between giving you a good chance at a score and breaking your heart...
