yes, the ocean views are tempting for a good course rating, but that's not part of the golf. maximum rating to me is 3,5*. the only challenges on this hilly course are the up and down plays and the undulated greens. otherwise no trees, wide open fairways, some bunkers without any drama and some bushes and high grass on the sides. the *championship course*-argument seems to be mainly because of some long holes, if you play the back-tees. walking is not allowed and would be a bit tough, because of long walks between greens and next tee-boxes – typical real estate. there are better and less expensive courses around knysna. you pay for noblesse, but the course isn't.

We played the course in December 2018. There are super varied holes with great views of the sea and the lagoon. The greens were top and despite Stimp 10 reasonably manageable.
Have played this next to 'Pinnacle Point' and 'Simola' probably one of the best places in the Cape region course in recent years and also on this holiday in early February 2019 again and again with enthusiasm. With 2700 Rand Green Fee for 2 Px incl. Cart, if not counting to the hotel guests, this place has meanwhile become comparatively expensive. Still, you must have played it while in the area. (Tip: in the afternoon often cheaper flatrate). Great sea views, wide ravines, beautiful forest landscapes and water hazards characterize the ups and downs, which should be mastered only with a cart. The staff is friendly and helpful and looks better organized than in recent years. Conclusion: Rather difficult but very worthwhile place, for which one should carry enough balls and a decent HCP (with Carry of 150+ with the gentlemen).
