Type: Golf Courses, Sports
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.

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.

Pearl Valley Golf Course – Franschhoek Valley On Par on and off course The Jack Nicklaus layout at Pearl Valley is best described as faultless and challenging. Spectacular water features, Mountain surrounds add quality to the immaculate look, feel and texture of all that is brilliantly green on this course, with the challenge increased by Mr Nicklaus love of bunkers....

The joy of playing this (difficult/challenging) course is that Jack Nicklaus who designed it has really considered the female golfer. The tees are suitably forward (not on every green , but enough) to allow a fair competitive challenge when playing against the Men! It is also a golf course with immaculate fairways and brilliant fast greens. I have to also... More

Needless to say ,the condition of the course is always immaculate - greens and fairways alike.... More

I really think the experience from start to finish at Pearl Valley is worth the trip out there. Friendly staff, who take notice of the finer details with all golfers, make a big difference. We were greeted by everyone around there and from the time we got on the course to the time we left, we felt like we were... More
