Golfing in Mossel Bay
Mossel Bay Golf Club
Six years ago, the Mossel Bay Golf Course was redesigned and renamed the Mossel Bay Golf Estate and Nature Reserve. Famed for having a view of the Indian Ocean from every tee, this 18-hole links-style course, with its large undulating greens, makes for an idyllic yet challenging round of golf. The golf club was founded in 1905 and the golf course relocated to its present position in 1924. Guests at the Mossel Bay Golf Lodge qualify for special tariffs to play a round of golf. More details on this is available from your hosts upon check in.
In the design of the Oubaai 18-hole Championship Golf Course and Driving Range, Ernie Els and his team have taken full advantage of the spectacular site they are working with. Oubaai Golf Course is kept in mint condition and it is one of the most beautiful settings that can be seen anywhere in the golfing world. It was recently awarded 3rd best conditioned course in Southern Cape and 10th in South Africa. The layout of the course is a traditional links type layout where veld grasses line the manicured fairways. The dramatic Golf Clubhouse location overlooks the 16, 17 and 18th greens. Open air terraces offer panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and the Gwaing River Valley. As you walk the course your views and outlooks take in forest, sea, river and mountain.
This Clifftop Fynbos Golf Course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breath-taking terrain. The 72-par layout is characterised by 7 majestic holes that line the Indian Ocean rock cliffs, four of which are played over ocean and cliff. All 18 holes have been designed to fit the contours of the land. Set on the edge of a magnificent coast, Pinnacle Point Beach and Golf Resort is situated at the gateway to the Garden Route, taking pride of place amongst exclusive neighbouring golf courses such as Fancourt, Pezula, Plettenberg Bay and George Golf Club.
Fancourt Hotel & Country Club Estate has since its opening transformed George into South Africa's new golf capital, situated in the heart of the popular Garden Route. The resort comprises two 18-hole golf courses of the championship class, both designed by Gary Player. Fancourt is - so far, the only South African - member of the renowned "Great Golf Resorts of the World”. Montagu course has developed into one of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts, earning it the number 8 position on Golf Digest SA’s list of top golf courses in the country. Exquisitely conditioned to provide a riveting golfing experience, this tree-lined course covers large tracts of varying terrain on rolling land. Ranked number 14 in South Africa by Golf Digest, Fancourt’s Outeniqua golf course presents an 18-hole parkland layout that is tailored to provide a laid-back golfing experience. The course provides for easier game play than its counterpart, the Montagu while offering its fair share of challenges and water hazards on as many as 11 of its holes.
