Arabella Golf Club, Kleinmond, (just outside of Hermanus), Western Cape / The theme is balance. Challenging enough to bring you back for more, enjoyable enough to make you not want to leave. The design challenge was headed by the renowned architect Peter Matkovich. His undoubted success has resulted in a course that complements the environment without disappointing the golfer, whether expert or amateur. The course is 6381 metres in length and has a SAGU rating of 72. It borders the largest natural lagoon in South Africa, and the 9th, 17th and 18th run parallel to the lagoon. Choosing a signature hole proves to be an extremely difficult task as all of the holes are well designed with spectacular views.

Average course

I am 8 Hcp player and was expecting a top of the range golf course.
Unfortunately it was just average.
Greens are not very fast and the course has hardly any difficuilties.
Friendly staff but not worth the money.

Gorgeous golf course and good service

On 12.01.19 this was our first course of our South Africa trip. It is a really well maintained course, which in any case has its claim for athletic players (I myself have HCP 8.4). The service by the staff is really great. Unfortunately, the practice facility is not the best, but at least there is one here. This is not common in South Africa.

Millionaire Golf - in two ways

Once again played on 24.11.2018, HCP 11

Golf at its best (space and quality - not necessarily the score). The prices are steep for South African conditions (GF about EUR 90, -, Cart 30, -), but you have the place almost on its own ( "millionaire golf" halt) and the investment is worth it all. Still one of the TOPP courses in South Africa.

Technically quite challenging - many tracks are designed very differently, boring repetitions do not exist, variety is trump! Ellen-long downhill fairways, long, narrow Par3s along the lagoon, crisp Par4 doglegs. Many bunkers, some of which stretch over long stretches along the fairway. So very interesting to play!

The greens are relatively large, very well maintained, but not very fast.

Only the sand was hard in many bunkers - but that is already "whining at a high level".

A cart is not necessarily needed if you want to tackle it sporty (the place is partly slightly hilly). "Arabella" is beautifully landscaped, with a lot of plants and 1A maintained. Compared to our first visit in 2013, the rear nine (which at that time fell slightly compared to the front nine) have now become visually (plants) even better. So you still seem to strive to improve the place. The construction sites on the square, which we were allowed to "admire" on our first visit, are now gone.

Conclusion: Now it is very fat 4 stars (in the "Golf Bear Ranking": 8 out of 10 points.)
