Erinvale Golf Course

At the very heart of the Cape, at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain in Somerset West, among verdant green vineyards, lies the 260-hectare Erinvale Golf Estate.

The prestigious Erinvale Golf Club belongs to the best in South Africa. Visitors can expect a course in top condition with finely manicured fairways, fast greens and breath taking views of the mountains, the Winelands and the False Bay coastline.

The Gary Player-designed course was opened in 1995 and has since established its position amongst the top golfing experiences in South Africa. The course provides an exciting varying layout and offers different views and experiences throughout.

A real test for any golfer. The first 9 holes are built on flat terrain with challenging holes made more difficult by strategic water hazards and an array of different style bunkers. These range from traditional large, well shaped bunkers, to some with railway sleepers holding up steep, sandy slopes.

Course Layout

Erinvale Golf Course's second 9 holes are on undulating high ground. Here the scenic splendour might distract the player from the continuing challenge. Again, water and bunkers are the main feature with the added test of sloping lies. The greens at Erinvale Golf Course are huge and well shaped allowing for several different pin placements. A feature of the layout is that different coloured flags tell you the position of the pin.
