Nice facility, interesting holes

One of the better ways around Cape Town. Nice staff and audience, good organization and fair prices.
Definitely worth it

Gorgeous

Here, far south of Kadstadt, you are also far away from the urban security requirements that are inevitable in South Africa. As a Central European, you immediately feel at home here. You are welcome and welcome. The launches are easily assigned and sometimes adjusted at short notice so that everyone is satisfied. The area is very well maintained. Due to their age, the tracks are not very long, but can still be played with the beautiful old trees, a number of water hazards and well-placed bunkers. Not for Haudraufs, rather for the tactical player. I really liked this nature-loving course, without a fence embedded in a small valley on the edge of the Peninsula National Park.

Nice and old

This course is located in a small valley, very quiet.

We remember well our first round of golf here, we stood in front of closed doors - a holiday here. Our program and the voucher fit the date (2002) - everything is still in paper form, hardly imaginable today.
An employee had a heart and opened the doors and we had a course to ourselves.

We have not noted how often we put the tea in the ground here, it is always on the list when we are in Cape Town. Mostly it is the warm-up round, was also played as the final round after showering on the plane.

This course was planned by Charles Molteno Murry in the 1930s. He was also responsible for the Royal Cape, Geroge and other good courses in the Western Cape.

The flat course is not that difficult, with the exception of 2 Par 4, none has more than 350 meters. The driver rested in the hotel room, playing long irons or small pieces of wood. The course is partly narrow, trees can disturb, and then there is also the SilwermynRiver, as well as a few ponds waiting for balls. Right at the start the right-angled dogled, then mostly straight to hole 10 - same game but par 5.
If you don't send balls to dive, there are very good scores here. If there is wind, the holes can still be long - the nozzle effect can have a big impact.

A very well-maintained area that is great fun - good clubhouse with nice staff.

Clovelly has been in the top 100 list for many years - currently 52.

We all have 4 stars, the fifth is missing because this course is not so demanding in terms of play. On average, the holes are 320 meters long - back tees.

Gem among the places around Cape Town

Played this well maintained, intermediate to light course repeatedly yesterday and again it was a relaxed golf experience in a fantastic environment. Although the tracks are mostly flat, a number of ponds, lovely plantings and beautiful scenery make the course an experience that is unparalleled in the Cape Town area. Apart from this time sometimes getting used to loud audience is here everything now-especially courteous staff & well-stocked pro shop.
Conclusion: The ideal entry for a golf vacation in South Africa good pro shop.

If you have played

We played on 15.01.19. The parkland short is located in a valley, surrounded by a very attractive mountain range. The course is basically flat, with a few gentle climbs, run. We (Hcp 10/34) played him with two caddies, the one of my wife was sensational (Charles senior his name). The course should be played strategically to take the winds out of the game or to integrate into the game. Above all, it's the crosswinds that need to be considered and the many bunkers tuned to them. A very nice and above all cultivated place. But the problem was again the booking. After we had a problem with the payment two years ago (our first payment through the travel agency turned on at that time was not findable), this time our booked and confirmed tee-time was not available. Then had to clarify the matter through the manager, and then also assigned a timely start time. But first canceled as a stupid customer, despite presentation of the appropriate evidence.. The rating would otherwise have earned 5 stars.

Pleasant golf in beautiful surroundings

Clovelly was once again in top gear on AZ. The course is beautiful in the landscape, with rows of trees and water hazards. The greens were very good to play, but are usually quite flat and so (too) easy to read. For me it is the noblest (not the hardest) golf course in the cape town. although slightly hilly and with many rows of trees - the place simply lacks the certain * difficulty * that it needs for 5 *.
If you keep the ball straight, you can write a good result here... except in strong wind, then it gets more demanding.

Super Site

Even in February 2018, despite the general drought, this place is still in excellent condition. Beautiful fairways, (me too) fast greens and varied fairways. Everything was super organized, very nice dressing rooms, nice view from the terrace on the tees of 1 and 10 and the green of the 18th at any time again!

And: no one is interested in DGV card and HCP.

In a calm neighborhood

Could play the place on 16.1.2018. away and quiet.
Even though the fairways were a bit dry, the approach strokes were still good. Very fast greens, varied fairways. How it turned out after a week is the place despite significant lack of water around Cape Town still one of the best. Booked about golfteetimes. co.za cost the place from 14 o'clock 880. Tsar.

CCC - Sympathetic golf course at Simonstown

Yesterday played this beautiful investment in a side valley on the Kapzipfel. Not spectacular, but not easy, varied with lightning-fast greens and many water hazards. Fair pricing, especially from 17 clock. For the 5th star is not missing much - a little at pro shop, restoration, place condition and location. Staff was helpful and friendly. Overall an absolutely worthwhile golf experience not far from Cape Town.

TOP plant in a very good condition.

Played here in December 2017, despite drought and water scarcity, the place was in great shape. Very good to play, nice tracks. We had a windy afternoon, according to our score. Nevertheless, a nice day, would definitely play the place on the next visit, really worth it.
Green fee very fair when talking about golf teetimes. co.za bay. In Proshop still discovered great deals.

Wonderful day in Clovelly CC

Despite current water shortage the place was in top condition and not only the fairways were lush and green. This justifies the relative to other courses but rather high green fees. The course is varied lined with partly narrow fairways, a few sharp doglegs on the edge with trees and well-placed water hazards. If certainly worth a visit in the area.

Highly recommended

Place with very good care of the state is generous nestled into the valley. Only the friendliness of the staff I would have liked more comfortable because obliging is something else. When booking our charts was probably recorded by the staff of the wrong day Man has switched once stubborn here, but has helped us in the end.
Shop Pro with a very good selection. Generous beautiful shower rooms. Flights start at a sufficient distance so that not create a squeezed impression. All areas of the course are in a very good condition. With very good truer greens.

Fine, fine.

A place which you should play if you like Parkland and homely atmosphere.
Place state very well. Clovelly has one of the few GC enough own water.
Good Proshop. untested gastronomy, since we wanted to go home due to the slightly longer Directions of Somerset West.
Good value for money.

PS: A little tip that applies to almost all places in SA .:

Book on: www. golfteetimes. co.za. Better price and very reliable!

Beautiful Place

The previous comments is in principle nothing to add.
We (HCP 17 and 34) have played the course on a Sunday afternoon in October 2016th Uncomplicated atmosphere, scenic place in good condition. No adjacent building because no estate, but a country club. Faire Spiellbahnen for each HCP suitable. Nevertheless varied enough for a nice round. Much play operation by members and guests.
Supposedly "the most popular place in ZA".
Good value for money!
The place can not compete with the very spectacular places in ZA, but convinced by nice location and good condition and is pleasant and uncomplicated. Surely Again any time...

Very well maintained golf among members

Played on 02/23/2016. The mostly flat 18-hole course (cart not required) is in absolute peace and nature above of a village in a valley between Cape Town and Simon's Town. Can be wonderfully combined with a visit to the penguins of Boulders. The course runs along varied through the valley with constant views of the surrounding mountains. There are usually open fairways for the high HC and certainly also challenges in the form of a few water hazards, bunkers and Doglege for the discerning golfer. The condition was first class. Everything green, which unfortunately during the round the greens were treated with Pestizieden what was correspondingly unpleasant odor and feel. But everything has its price! The season was already at 8 am to our start time (booking essential) very active. The start of two teas in four Flight at intervals of 10 minutes. At the Tee you will be called by name by the starter. Most players are clearly members. The welcome in the ProShop was friendly and there was a small gift incl. A free water Compulsory Halfwaypause. This has unfortunately lasted nearly 30 minutes at our game and correspondingly long the rounds went unfortunately. Nevertheless, the round is highly recommended here definitely. There is also a driving range and the beautiful club house offers everything golfers need. The green fee is 50, - € converted appropriately. Naturnahe experiences with squirrels and many birds are commonplace. Who is near, this system should play at least once.

Special golf experience at Simonstown

Very playing cheap place on the way from Cape Town (airport) to Simonstown and Cape of Good Hope - Located in a valley that leads down to the sea. Perhaps along with ARABELLA in Kleinmond the finest golfing pleasure in the surrounding region. Particularly attractive is the low green fee prices and "Moonlight tariffs" in the afternoon. Overall, a more varied and moderate space, in which the true value for money and is well suited for entry into a golf vacation at the Cape.

Down under the crocodil :-)

Clovelly is a beautiful and varied golf course without the usual urban canyons next to the tracks. The green fee price equivalent to about € 40, - per person is absolutely fair and reasonable. The course can be run well, a card is not necessary. Counter and tailwinds alternate and vary from day to day.

Rarely had so much fun!

Makes a place of joy.
- Very well maintained fairways and greens
- Fantastic Grounds (hole 1 hole 4)
- Very friendly staff in the pro shop
- The CC affects family
- Super Trolleys
- Many birds (peacocks, Adida, herons, guinea fowl, geese Egyptian ...)
- Great old trees

Above all, it is important to mention hole 19. The club members are very warm, relaxed and helpful (Thanks to Pam and Donald). We have never laughed so much with the two.

We will come back!

One of the most beautiful places in the Cape

After 12 years, we were able to play this wonderful place finally back. The fairways were in excellent condition. The greens super fast but very loyal. Service very unobtrusive but always present. Had a wonderful day. Can recommend the place fully.

As previously reported, the reception is very friendly.
Unlike most places in South Africa this place is not built over with villas and apartments. This we found to be very angenehmn because have a great view over the square and the countryside.
The course was in excellent condition. We can highly recommend him.

Very enjoyable!

Warm reception at the Pro Shop, which offers a wide selection. The course is in good condition. The Flights seem to be somewhat tightly packed, yet itself holds the wait in limits. Each employee of the club is trying to prepare a good time guests. Halfway House and Restaurant offer friendly service and good quality. Not quite the standard of Steenberg, but highly recommended.
