Stellenbosch Golf Club celebrated its centenary in 2004. This, the 4th oldest Golf Club in South Africa, changed from a 9 hole golf course to the current 18 hole championship lay-out in 1953. This magnificent golf course has hosted some of South Africa's most prestigious golf tournaments, including the 1999 South African Open and 5 South African Masters tournaments. Situated at the foot of the majestic Helderberg mountains on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, a town that is also home to one of South Africa's most revered universities. Stellenbosch Golf Club offers golfers an immaculate golf course, complemented by a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Our first visit to Stellenbosch GC - quite a busy course and need to book tee time well in advance. Most of course in good condition but a bit scrubby if you went off the fairway, however well worth a visit if you like a traditional parkland type course. Helpful staff in pro shop.

popped into this golf club for a sundowner and noticed that the terrace has installed a pizza oven on the terrace. So we decide to have pizza's whilst watching the sun set on the Blaauwklippen mountains. A lovely evening. Pizza's were tasty enough to warrant a second visit in the future.

What a treat at this beautiful Golf Club is. The Pro Shop with Louis [The Golf Director]and his staff were really fantastic on our arrival. The welcome was a feel good one alright. The Golf course itself is in perfect condition and is a delight to play, the greens are running very nicely as well. It is a real gem... More

The golf course is right in the middle of things. The course is in excellent condition. The staff is very friendly and the pizzas and beers after the game, fantastic.

A real golf course rather than a resort course. You need to book tee-times if you want to ensure you get a game. The staff in the club house are friendly and welcoming.

this has always been a great golf course but there s a little bit of faded elegance about it at the moment. whilst other local courses de zalze, devonvale and paarl boschenmeer all appear to be making progress in terms of improving greens, increasing maturity, and well maintained fairways - stellenbosch is getting a bit scrappy. greens were variable in...

nothing better than a round of golf followed with a delicious Hunters Draft Cider with a thin based wood fired pizza on the balcony of the Stellenbosch Golf Club. The most stunning views looking towards the Helderberg Mountains in summer make this venue a truly great value for money offering.
