The golf course is flat but challenging, consisting of 18 fairways, 58 sand bunkers as well as 6 water hazards.
The Metropolitan Golf Club is the only one situated right in the middle of Cape Town. Right next to the newly built Green Point Stadium and in walking distance to the V&A Waterfront, the 18-hole course permits a clear view towards Table Mountain and Signal Hill.
Right inside the exquisite Steenberg Wine Estate in Constantia on the slopes of Constantia Hill, the 18-hole course poses a real challenge with its 6.424 m in length, slopes on the fairways, numerous water obstacles and the narrow areas for the final put.
Rather impressive as to its surroundings, the Clovelly Golf Course with its 18 holes can be found in the marvelous Silvermine Valley, nestled between Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay just before the Cape of Good Hope. The exclusive location offers breathtaking views towards the Western and Eastern Coastlines of the Cape peninsula.
Breathtaking views onto False Bay, high pine trees and the large lake in between the tees, explain the popularity of the most beautiful golf course within the Western Cape. It is set on the slopes of the Silvermine Mountains and offers 18 fairways.
This popular golf course can be found just before Cape Town City and offers spectacular views onto Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak. The small river winding through the 18 hole course as a water obstacle causes a challenge for many players.
Right next to the sandy beach of Bloubergstrand, the Milnerton Golf Club is positioned on a narrow strip in between the Rietvlei Lagoon and the Table Bay. Being the only left golf course in Cape Town, the 18-hole course offers magnificent views towards Table Mountain, Cape Town and the Table Bay.

On the bottom of Table Mountain, the Mowbray Golf Club is known for its breathtaking views and abundant vegetation. The 18 hole course is dreaded as to its tree obstacles and water hazards.
