Courses in Winelands

Winelands, South Africa

Under and hours drive from Cape Town and you're in the mountains and valleys of the picturesque Winelands where you will find Cape Dutch style gabled homesteads, wineries with excellent wines and quaint towns like Stellenbosch, Franschoek and Paarl which are lined with ancient oaks and exquisite restaurants. With superb courses including Erinvale and Pearl Valley set is such stunning scenery this is a golfer's paradise.

The Cape region is best visited in the spring and summer months from October to April, as this is the high season green-fees are generally higher than in the winter months. The Cape region can pretty much be considered an all year round golf destination and excellent value in the low season months of May through September.

Our favourite Cape Winelands golf courses are shown below.

Winelands Tips

Steenberg is my pick of the wineland courses surrounding Cape Town, a great layout that is superbly manicured set within a wine estate.
