“Not a signature quality with poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

I have played all courses around Cape Town but the price paid for green fee and value of signature course of Gary Player does not match. You better play Westlake for the same quality for half the price. I am a single HCP and greens are to soft (to much water and need urgent verdicutting). Bunkers are not even filled with sand, what would younexpect froma Gary Player ... Driving range with poor hitting surface and bad maitenance. Custoer service not very poor, we were pushed to the back nine, as we were running 5 minutes late. They are pushing on cash and not quality. If you speak to someone responsible, just rude. It is a nice course layout but cannot recommend it for the money and not excisting service. Gary would not be happy about it!

A difficult course, but also a forgiving one. I loved it.
The view is incredible with the mountains andthe sea. You simply must try this course.

“Golf with a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The course was in magnificent condition, despite the rain of the previous 2 days. It played true to form and the views from the top nine are fantastic! Looking across the ocean on 15 is awesome! Ocean in the distance with Gordons Bay and Strand. Well worth another visit, and to see how the "other" well off take in the beauty of living on the golf course!

“One of the best in South Africa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Stunning course. Played the day after 90mm of rain and still a wonderful experience. Unbelievable views on a tough but forgiving course. Be sure to play this course if in the area you won't be disappointed. Even the clubhouse and service are unsurpassed.
Ps - invest in a cart as it is quite steep the 2nd 9.
