Milnerton Golf Course
Our “Home” course around the corner is situated alongside the Atlantic Table Bay in Milnerton, this is a fairly exposed course with little to protect it from the strong winds that blow in summer – this makes for a challenging game. The course offers scenic views out to sea and towards Table Mountain, and the nearby lagoon boasts an array of waterbirds.
Atlantic Beach Golf Club
Situated amid undulating, fynbos-coverd dunes and set against the world-renowned backdrop of Table Mountain. On calm days you can play your normal lofted shot, but on windy days (more often) you can use the firm turf to play low running shots, beneath the wind.
18 holes, Links, Par 72
Situated ca. 20 min from Cape Hermitage, Milnerton
Bellville Golf Club
You will find yourself tackling some considerable slopes during your round, but you will be rewarded by the magnificent views from the high vantage points and the greens are flat and in excellent condition.
18 holes, Par 72
Situated in the northern suburbs. 20 km from Cape Hermitage, Minerton
Clovelly Country Club
The Clovelly Golf Course and Country Club is situated between the villages of Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay. The course is well maintained and always in good condition. The modern clubhouse is perched high above the course, from where you have a vantage point over not only the 18th hole, but also the 1st and 10th holes which both feature sharp doglegs, to the right and left respectively. This will immediately tell you that accurate tee shots are required, something you will be reminded of constantly on this narrow course. During the summer months, you can expect to have a little (and sometimes, a lot of) wind which adds to the difficulty on this course.
