Playing golf in South Africa, especially in the Cape, is a bit like scoring a hole-in-one with every shot. Quite simply, the location offers everything a golf lover could desire: the most beautiful courses in the world with breathtaking scenery, the weather, the climate, the fascinating views and not least, the attractive prices. There are five golf courses in Somerset West alone, each with their own charisma. Some were even designed by the renowned architect Gary Player.
Thanks to the mild climate of the Cape, golf can be played all year round. Why put up with Europe’s long golf drought from November to March when paradise is just a few hours’ flight away?
There’s also no need to be a professional in order to penetrate the world of Bernhard Langers, Tiger Woods and Ernie Eis in South Africa. Golf schools and practice courses offer beginners the perfect introduction to this fantastic sport before hitting the more complex greens and fairways. In comparison to other golf regions, the prices are surprisingly economical. Green fees for the extremely well-kept clubhouse courses are available from just 25 Euros, whilst an 18-hole green fee on the more prestigious courses is priced from 70 Euros.
And all of this is right on your doorstep! The following courses are just 5 to 10 minutes away from Somer Place B&B:
