Royal Cape Golf Club (18)

event-365.jpg

The Royal Cape Golf Club is the oldest golf course in South Africa. It was founded as early as 1885 by the British General Sir Henry Torrens,who had taken over the command of the troops at the Cape and immediately laid out a golf course in front of his military camp in Wynberg. It received the attribute "Royal" in 1910 by the Duke of Connaught, who represented King George V at the opening of the first parliament of the South African Union. Royal Cape welcomes all golfing visitors. We strive to present a golfing environment that is enjoyable, memorable and a true test of golf without making your game here onerous.

Our clubhouse will enhance your enjoyment of your day with us and you’re golfing needs can be taken care of by our well trained PGA professionals. With lovely views of Table Mountain from most holes this championship course offers a beautiful setting that will make your visit here truly memorable. Royal Cape Golf Club is a true championship course having hosted the South African Open no less than eleven times and the SA Amateur Championships eight times.

The most recent SA Open held here was in 1996 and was won by Ernie Els. The course today is a fine test of golf especially when the south-easter is blowing. Essentially it is a flat parkland course, well maintained and a pleasure to play with lovely views of the Table Mountain range. The fairways are narrow and tree-lined, demanding accuracy off the tees. Wayward shots are penalised by trees and the greens are well bunkered. There is also plenty of water on the course, particularly at the corner of the 3rd and 4th and 5th holes and also at the 14th, 15th and 16th holes. The most difficult holes are the par 4 third, at 435m the longest two-shotter on the course, and the par 4 14th played into the teeth of the prevailing south-easter with water guarding the right of the green.
