Knowing that they have the annual holiday visitors pretty well trapped is no reason for this country course to charge prices comparable to Top 20 courses. While the course itself is in pristine condition - lush fairways; slow but true greens; consistent sand-traps and rough which properly punishes poor shots - it is short (Less than 6,000m) and visitors are...

This is just the ticket for the average golfer. Well maintained and presented it is neither particularly long nor heart-breaking but it is good fun. Clearly the front nine has yet to mature but the back nine is very reminiscent of country links courses in UK. The Halfway House is well stocked with tempting aromas for the 10 minute compulsory...

Goose Valley course is always very well presented and in great condition. Despite 24 hours of rain the course was dry which amazed me (Plettenberg CC was very boggy). Staff are always very pleasant and there is a new Pro there now. The food side has recently been taken over and they have a very good menu. The seafood curry... More

The golf course is in excellent condition, and caters for the average holiday golfer. The holes are relatively short, and the greens and fairways are surely the best in SA. The gardens in the estate are magnificent and a real joy to see. However, be careful being ripped off by the waitresses in the clubhouse. On the same day, I... More

My son and I rented a unit over January and we loved it. The Goose Valley estate is beautifully maintained with a pristine golf course, lovely Golf Club and beautiful gardens. We weren't however very impressed with the swimming pool area which I think needs some improvement. As GV is situated only about 5 to 10 minutes from the centre... More

Played here yesterday with my wife. The course is really well maintained, with interesting holes and the green fee was good value. I hired clubs, which were in very good condition. We ate in the bar afterwards, and the food was very good. All in a really good place to play golf.

Well maintained and staffed by friendly and professional staff. The course works well for the less serous golfers while still a challenge for those who seek a stern test. Easy to walk, with a good practice area.

This is a very nice course and very forgiving. You will enjoy it as a beginner, but there are also enough challenges for the experienced golfer to enjoy it. Played my best round of golf here to date so I absolutely love it. It also has a great and not too expensive club house to play a long 19th...

I love Goose Valley golf course and club. It's in stunning condition and they seem to respect the fynbos. They are not stuffy like other courses. There is a beautiful patio from which you gaze onto the mountains. My favourite.
