Type: Golf courses, Outdoor Activities
Owner description: 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.

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. What is the point of boasting about such facilities when they are Not available even to tourists occupying Lodges rented through the Administration. You are free to look and admire such facilities all day... More

...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

The restaurant at Pearl Valley is a place where we have been more or less 5 times over a period of months. The experience is not consistent. The menu is fairly small with interesting dishes however it does not always end up on the plate with the same taste and quality. It is a child friendly relaxed environment with a... More

I played in the Audi Quattro Golf Day at the Pearl Valley Golf Estate. Everything went swimmingly well, golf course in superb condition, beautiful weather, superb facilities, great food at the prize giving. If you get a chance to platt this course and utilise the facilities you definitely should!

Limited, but tasteful menu with good selection of wines. The service is excellent and the views and setting cannot be better. We will be back.
