Royal Johannesburg | Designed by Robert Grimsdell

Considered one of South Africa’s most prestigious golf clubs, Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club will start our 2021 tour.   With a history spanning over 130 years, this Royal Club has hosted 7 South African Opens and is home to the Jo’Burg Open, the biggest event in South Africa.

Leopard Creek | Designed by Gary Player

Working closely with the Kruger National Park and nature conservation authorities, the Leopard Creek Golf Course was specifically designed to blend in with the surroundings, providing sophisticated leisure amenities in an undisturbed natural environment. Sightings of crocodile, hippo, antelope, buffalo and wild boar are commonplace, either on the course itself or in or next to the river running alongside several holes. Golfing hazards take on a new dimension at Leopard Creek for much of the water is home to hippos and the creature for which the adjacent river is named – crocodile.   The tour will include both the demanding Par 3 Course as a challenging opener before we take on the Big Championship Course.

Erinvale | Designed by Gary Player

Erinvale states that you will always find a friendly and warm welcome and we expect nothing less of this Gary Player designed course.  Opened in 1995, and surrounded by the majestic Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountains, Erinvale is without a doubt one of the best Golf Courses in South Africa,. magnificent sweeping views over False Bay, surrounding vineyards, olive groves and Helderberg Nature Reserve.  Erinvale Golf Club hosted the World Cup of Golf in 1996, as well as the South African Airways Open Championship in 2003 and 2004.

Pearl Valley | Designed by Jack Nicklaus

The Pearl Valley Golf Estate is surrounded by the Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountains and bordered by vineyards with The Berg River water hazard running through it. Pearl Valley is the latest South African addition to Jack Nicklaus’s repertoire of signature-designed courses worldwide. Nicklaus has stayed true to his design principles by working closely with nature and has provided a golf course that fits in with the environment.

Arabella | Designed by Peter Matkovich

The Arabella golf course has a demanding and exceptional design that offers a challenging experience to all levels of golfers. A parkland design, with wide kikuyu fairways and bent-grass greens. The exceptional overall conditioning of this course ensures that it is consistently rated the best course in the Western Cape and amongst the country's top five courses by both leading South African golf publications.

Hermanus | Designed by Robert Grimsdell

Hermanus, on the Cape South Coast, is located in a charming fishing village famous for the whales that visit annually to calve.  With its unparalleled scenic beauty, modern infrastructure, upmarket shops and endless adventure options, it’s little wonder that Hermanus town has grown in size and popularity during the last decade. The golf property features a mixture of 3 courses played over 27 holes and is extremely popular with visiting ‘Capetonians’ year round. We will join this growing group of visitors and enjoy this course located in what is known as SA’s Whale watching capital!

Pinnacle Point | Designed by Peter Matkovich, assisted by Darren Clarke

The Pinnacle Point Golf Course is something truly unique for the discerning golfer. This 18 hole championship golf course was designed by well-known South African golf course architect Peter Matkovich who opened the course together with top Irish Tour Professional Darren Clarke in November 2006. This Cliff top course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breath-taking terrain. The layout is characterised by 7 majestic holes that line the Indian Ocean rock cliffs, four of which are played over ocean and cliff.

Simola | Designed by Jack Nicklaus

Simola Golf and Country Estate has firmly cemented its place as one of Africa’s premiere golfing destinations. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course was designed by the legend himself and, as the first on the continent and still only one of three in Africa, remains a favourite amongst professionals, seasoned players and those who enjoy a challenging yet fun game now and then.  The views are to die for, set high amongst the ridges but is remarkably free from wind, due to its design and layout.  Interestingly, the card features 5 x Par 3’s and 5 x Par 5’s.

The Fancourt Challenge | Designed by Gary Player

No golfing trip to South Africa is complete without a round or two to Fancourt!  The Fancourt Golf Resort was recently ranked in the top 10 Golf Resorts in the world, and is the only Golf Resort in South Africa with 3 breath-taking Golf courses, all originally designed by Gary Player. The Montagu course is a much celebrated parkland course and has been ranked as the number-one golf course in South Africa in the past.   The Fancourt Outeniqua Golf Course as part of South Africa’s premier golfing destination lies at the foot of the majestic Outeniqua Mountain in the heart of the world-famous Garden Route district.   

Closer to the time, tees will be confirmed for the group on either the Montagu or Outeniqua course.

The Links at Fancourt is without doubt the most impressive piece of golf design and construction ever in South Africa. Fancourt owner Dr Hasso Plattner, who took a very hands-on function in the creation, commissioned a golf course, which would not only be a thorough test for every golfer, but would also rank among the top courses in the world. Gary Player’s design team spent months studying the classic links courses of Scotland and Ireland and then, armed with inspiration from the best that those countries had to offer, embarked on the ambitious task of recreating some of their finest holes to make a genuine links test on what was once an airfield.
