Gary Player was the designer of the course and little of his immaculate challenges has been altered. The introduction of trees and the considerable care of manicuring the surrounds are nevertheless noticeable improvements.

The first nine holes are on the low, flat part of the estate and the second nine are on high, undulating ground. This will give you two different feels, but there remains a common thread – that is the standard of the superbly shaped greens, with truly consistent putting surfaces. The 1st hole, a dogleg right epitomises the Erinvale experience. You can choose a safe line straight off the tee leaving a long second to an elevated green well protected by bunkers and water to the right. The more ambitious will cut the corner with their drive. This requires a carry over water and a ditch, as well as the avoidance of trees. The reward is a short iron to a difficult target.

Throughout the course there are majestic mountain backdrops, panoramic views of the surrounding hillsides planted with vine and sparkling views of the ocean from the higher vantage points. I have chosen to describe the finishing holes on both nines. These are excellent holes. However, I assure you that the experience and scenery around the other 16 will be cherished by the participants in the South African Airways Open as well as those of you who get to play on this superb layout in the winelands.
