Featured Golf Club: Erinvale

31 January 2013

There’s nowhere better to enjoy a round on the golf course than in the Western Cape, South Africa.Whether you’re a Brit abroad where there’s the amazing climate, the fact you can drive on the left, speak English and have no jet lag to interfere with your holiday enjoyment or a fellow golf-loving South African, the courses of Cape Town offer it all.

Today we take a look at one of our favourite courses; Erinvale Golf Club.

Only 30 minutes from Cape Town and nestled at the foot of the magnificent Helderberg mountains, lies one of South Africa’s golfing jewels. Erinvale offers a unique golfing challenge to all levels of players, with breathtaking views of the Cape Winelands as well as the beautiful False Bay Coastline.

Since Erinvale’s inception in 1994, this Gary Player designed course has hosted the 1996 World Cup of Golf and more recently, the 2003, 2004 & 2005 South African Open, the 2nd oldest golf championship in the world. This superbly maintained championship course offers the golfer two distinctly different nines.

The flat outward nine is defined by challenging approach shots to long narrow putting surfaces, with the inward nine offering beautiful vistas from its undulating fairways and a finish that rates among the best in the world.
