Spent a week staying and playing golf at De Zalze. Excellent accommodation setting and golf experience. If you experience any problems the CEO Dave Hansen or or Alfie the Golf director will go out of their way to assist you. Great base to visit wine estates or play golf from with accommodation to meet individual needs or large groups.

I was looking forward to playing here again, having enjoyed this lovely course on previous visits. We were a two ball and, as the pace of play was so slow, were very happy to join up with the two ball in front of us after four holes. It took over three hours to play the front nine, waiting on every... More

We played here twice in February and liked the lay-out and the variety of holes, but there are too many geese who leave their droppings on the greens. Not pleasant, particularly in the afternoon when the green keeping is long past.

Dave H, General Manager at De Zalze Golf Club, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind comments and review of your experience at DZGC. We share your view about too many geese. They are protected in SA and are very difficult to manage. We are looking at ways to reduce their numbers and manage their presence. Kind regards Dave More

This place is spectacular. My ouma and oupa (granny and grandpa) stay here. It is more a place for adults who like to play golf. Restrauntes and shops all over the world sell their amazing wine. Its a must have and De Zalze Golf Club is a must go.
