GOLF AT ROYAL CAPE COUNTRY CLUB
The oldest club in South Africa founded in 1885, the prestigious Royal Cape golf course has a sense of history and tradition. It lies in the shadow of Table Mountain and has a flattish parkland layout fringed with lovely mature trees and enhanced by numerous established lakes. This challenging course has been home to the South African Open on many occasions.
Water comes into play on the 3rd, 4th and 5th holes. Later from the 14th to 16th holes and from every hole you enjoy superb views of Table Mountain. The 15th hole is a lovely par 3 requiring a finely judged shot over the water. The course has fast greens which present a real challenge. The design – an open layout is exposed to the wind. So on a windless day, the Royal Cape can be forgiving, but in a stiff breeze it can be an absorbing challenge, although the mature trees lining the fairways do help. The fairways are narrow, demanding accuracy off the tee. Wayward shots can be heavily penalized amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered
Morning return road transfer to CPT airport for your flight to Johannesburg and connecting flight back home.
