Very nice lay-out and enjoyed our games. Greens need attention! Club house and pizza was most enjoyable.

“golf, pizza with a view”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

nothing better than a round of golf followed with a delicious Hunters Draft Cider with a thin based wood fired pizza on the balcony of the Stellenbosch Golf Club. The most stunning views looking towards the Helderberg Mountains in summer make this venue a truly great value for money offering.

“Good parkland course”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

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!

“Lots of better courses!!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

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!

“Disappointing service”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

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.
