Owner description: Stellenbosch Golf Club celebrated its centenary in 2004. This, the 4th oldest Golf Club in South Africa, changed from a 9 hole golf course to the current 18 hole championship lay-out in 1953. This magnificent golf course has hosted some of South Africa's most prestigious golf tournaments, including the 1999 South African Open and 5 South African Masters tournaments. Situated at the foot of the majestic Helderberg mountains on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, a town that is also home to one of South Africa's most revered universities. Stellenbosch Golf Club offers golfers an immaculate golf course, complemented by a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Stellenbosch GC has the feel very much of a members' course and is set out in parkland style.
The difficulty it has is that there are many very good/excellent courses in close proximity with similar/less expensive green fees (eg Devon Vale) BUT they lack the "members' feel" of Stellenbosch and have more of a "corporate feel"........as always, you pays your money, you takes your choice!

Handicap:13 and 16. Stellenbosch GC was in 2006 the host of a championship. Since then not much money can have been spent on keeping the course in good shape. The fairways really need much more attention from the greenkeepers as well as the bunkers. It looks as if the greenkeepers do not give any attention to the rough.....but this is also an important part of the golfcourse!! Also the greens are in a very bad condition (complete renewal of all greens is best advise!!). All by all very disappointing and with lots of golf courses around Stellenbosch you better play your round at another course! One more warning: it looks as if they offer an attractive greenfee but they charge you for a buggy very high prices and if you need to rent a set (e.g. when you come from overseas) you pay the jackpot!! On most golfcourses a quick bite halfway is included; not at this course.
For us it was the first and last time!

We were quite shocked at how badly young people were treated at the club. Friendly staff and helpful service will go a long way to lift the club to its potential and match the picturesque setting with beautiful mountain backdrop.

Really good little course - probably because i played well. Not in the same league Eronvale or Pearl valley but very enjoyable.

Basic food, good service and you just may be lucky to meet one of the sport starts of the season.
Want to have a chat to the SA captain - this is where he plays golf every now and then
