Description: Unsurpassed for natural beauty and nestled in the gorgeous Berg River...
Unsurpassed for natural beauty and nestled in the gorgeous Berg River Valley, surrounded by the magnificent Simonsberg Mountains and situated on the banks of the Berg River lies Pearl Valley Golf & Country Estate. This beautiful 212-hectare estate incorporates both a tranquil and secure country residential estate and an award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Named the Best Conditioned Golf Course in the Western Cape for 2010, 2011 and 2012 by Golf Digest Magazine and awarded Compleat Golfer's Five Star Experience Award for six consecutive years, it's evident that it does indeed take a legend to make a legend.

After nut such an exiting previous experience, we returned and it was pleasant to lovely this time round. The food was fresh and the order executed to the "T".

This review is two parts, the most important piece is the golf course which is truly fantastic. Well designed with classic par threes over water, long winding par fours with multiple bunkers and beautiful par fives with sweeping fairways. All holes are protected by lightning fast greens that are amazing. A risk and reward course and that I would love... More

Rented accommodation on the complex which was great .however be warned that even though you may have paid £1000. Yes that's right a thousand notes,the proles on the committee that run the golf club,are nothing short of arrogant 😢.

We've been to Pearl Valley's restaurant on more than one occasion and always had stellar service, even if the food was sometimes a bit hit-and-miss. Unfortunately, our latest experience has me wondering if it is worthwhile to return to the restaurant. In the restaurant's defense, we were a large group of around 25 people who arrived with very little notice... More

These facilities might well be some of the best in South Africa but they cannot be used except for 1 hour after paying a green fee.

...after a round, green fee players are NOT allowed to use the range anymore to finish off the day. Even after a talk with the manager, no solution was offered. Not worth playing again, cancelld our second booking. Course itself certainly well maintained and facilites are above average.

The course is a classic American style course designed by one of the best golf designers in the world. The course has a classic blueprint of real estate country club living. That´s fine if you are looking to imprison yourself in a gated village and live the "life". I found the course to have very little soul. The holes are... More
