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.

Great place with only small abers

I played the course twice at the end of February 2019. I like to take a trolley, but here I have to clearly advise the buggy. The fairways are very long, the distances in between above average. You have to imagine everything a bit more generous than usual. From parking to the pro shop, you are happy to see the service come to you. In South Africa, a 15-minute break after hole 9 is compulsory, in Germany it is often played through or paused longer, if possible. At the end of hole 8 you can then order a snack so that it is ready for a break and can be devoured. No cash, only card. You can hear some of the road while playing, but admittedly that gets more annoying in some German places. The greens were sanded, the first time there was no discount, the second time already. What bothered most was that at the first time, almost every hole had someone working on the fairway or on the green, and the workers did not seem to care about golfer coming. No indication that you may be patient, nothing! Worker buggies arrived from the back, but as such they did not recognize it and said that the subsequent flight was jostling. For this reason, only 4 stars, because if at each hole something different comes up, no real game flow will arise. At the second time this was not the case at all. The service is compared to other places here really above average.

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.
