Arrived at 4:25pm to play cave golf. Travelled over 30 minutes from Muizenberg in the traffic and the rain with my little girl to play. We were refused entry as it’s an 18 hole course and we wouldn’t finish playing the course in 30 minutes. I was prepared to play as many holes as time permitted at the full fee - even if it turned out to be the last 5 holes for example. Only my little girl would have played. I hope you retain your tour bus customers as it’s clear you don’t value your local tourists. I would recommend playing at the Muizenberg putt putt rather.

If you like geology or gemology then this place will interest you. A wide range of finished products, but everyone enjoyed sifting through the scratch patch to find the stone’s they really liked. My wife bought a couple of stone bracelets and my daughter a salt stone lamp. Relatively well priced. Jewelry and semi precious cut and polished stones I found well priced.

I actually went to scratch patch MANNYY years ago when I was 6 and it is my most memorable memory from my childhood. I remember me and my brother both went and found a bit of amythest. When we put the 2 pieces together, we realised it was 2 halves of one stone. It was one of the BEST days of my life since when I was younger I was OBSESSED with crystals and gemstones and all that. I’m 16 now so it was 10 years ago. I would absolutely LOVE to go back there again and it would make my heart feel so warm. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND going as a family is the BEST. 😁

Every time we go to Simon’s town, we scratch for a small bag of stones, we love it! We have quite a collection of stones already.
