Description:

Unsurpassed for natural beauty and nestled in the gorgeous Berg River...

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.

This is a good golf course but with lots of hazards - bunkers and water so pack some balls! The course was well kept and is enjoyable with a nice clubhouse. A buggy may not be necessary but was worth it on a hot day.

This is really a very nice golfing experience and no doubt a very aspiring golf estate to be a member of. The golf course is a great test of skill (and would be after hosting some SA Open's) and thankfully it has various tee positions for everyone's enjoyment. The views are great, the layout is flowing, condition is very good... More

Firstly, this is the first time I'm writing a negative review. We were so disappointed last night and if it was not for the exceptional service we've received from Jo-Anne our waitress we would've walked out. The chef, Juan thinks he's Gordon Ramsay (overheard him screaming to one of his staff) and he was just outright rude to my husband.... More

Very nice parkland course in excellent condition, the holes were interesting, challenging, but very playable as you'd expect from a Jack Nicklaus course, with great views to the Simonsberg mountains. Unlike some golf estates, the properties never intrude on the course and definitely, worth a round if your in the area.

This review is two parts, the most important piece is the golf course which is truly fantastic. Well designed with classic par threes over water, long winding par fours with multiple bunkers and beautiful par fives with sweeping fairways. All holes are protected by lightning fast greens that are amazing. A risk and reward course and that I would love... More
