Lives on tradition

The old place with a really nice layout unfortunately lives from tradition.
Wonderfully run fairways, always exciting and with many beautiful views of the sea.
I was particularly impressed by course 17, a par 5, a hammer hole.
Then why only 3 stars? Unfortunately, this is due to the lack of space maintenance. The fairways are littered with many bald spots and make a very unkempt impression.
A second example was the unfortunately uncut and therefore very slow greens. The putting green was mowed and very quick, the anticipation for beautiful greens was great and then the disillusionment - no mown greens - a no go!
The driving range in its equipment did not necessarily leave the best impression.

.. minus 15..

... that's the score of Louis Osthuzien - is his home club - the playing pro played here, crazy...

... an old club founded in 1905, ..
... was at home on the local airfield area.
Bod Grimsdell built this course in the mid-1920s. At the turn of the millennium, the entire course was revised by Obermeyer and Basson.

The course created over the cliffs has a good layout, but is not a top course in our opinion. The playful challenges are not that high.
It is a slightly hilly area with many teas which gives a great view of the Indian Sea and is easy to play on foot.
If the conditions are good - no wind - it is easy to play.

Care and maintenance is good.

It was fun, all balls wanted to experience even more.

Great place with sea views

Place right in the town of Mosselbaai where we stayed We liked very well. Not as fancy as the neighbor Pinnacle but comfortable. In Mossel Bay there are in contrast to Capetown / Stellenbosch enough water. Yes, the houses and fences are very dense. That bothered me a little. The many springboks did not bother. The boardroom had canteen character. And the golfers in ZA are probably chain smokers with so many cigarette butts on the square. We played the place relaxed with kids and 2 carts. After 9 holes under 2 h seems to be always the obligatory break of 20 min.

Beautiful place - bad rental clubs

The place is wonderful. You can actually see the sea from all tees and on some tracks you just want to stop. Unfortunately, the rental clubs were ancient and that has greatly affected the game. Once again I would not accept such thugs.

Beautiful Place

The motto is: from every tee the ocean can be seen. And it is true! The place was well maintained and the service was very good. Louis is omnipresent. We liked rs very much. Handicap 5 to 22.

Almost 4 stars

Very nice place over the sea. Due to the strong development, the sea is unfortunately not always (less and less) to see. Slightly hilly with slopes. The greens are not too fast. The general condition left on 7.2.2018 to be desired. The price 485 rand.

You can see the silent sea... BUT

Played on 12/09/2014, HCP 14

Does my euphoric review from last year unfortunately revise something. There are now so many houses were built on the site that great view comes only next to the sea to fruition. If you look inland, you can see a mostly houses Sea. The cabins are not ugly, but the mass simply slays the overall impression. More city as a golf course - very bad...

Moreover annoying:
A green keeper gave us 2 holes long orbits with the lawn mower - constantly at a distance of about 2 to 5m to our Cart - did not matter whether there to mow lawns, or not. Eventually, he probably figured that it für's knocking off is no money and finally crumbles voluntary. I suspect that this is a new "business model" (other golfers have had similar experiences?) - For a random Orbiting it was just too conspicuous and persistent.

Otherwise, as usual - interesting tracks (especially in windy conditions), springbok on the pitch, great care condition, ...

Conclusion: Still a class place, but because of the "Estate" character unfortunately "only" smooth 4 stars (the "Bear Golf Ranking": 8 out of 10 points).

You can see the sea...

Played on 12.12.2013, HCP 13

Well kept place under the motto "You can see the sea from every tee". I've checked - it's true! Really from EVERY tee you can see from the ocean and sometimes you have the impression to hit directly on the sea beyond. This is very nice and the many houses along the fairways and not interfere too much.

The course seems mainly to be used by members / locals, tourists are more likely the exception. Therefore maybe not as a service effort is made as in the typical "tourist-places" in this area. You invite just the bag itself on's Cart, takes care of its own to the drinks - and saves the tip. ;-)

The place is not easy and with 5.966m (4,936 women) not too short - you realize it especially with a headwind (supposed by the sea sometimes happen), then it is really hard! No water hazards, bunkers moderate, but off the fairways lurking directly Finbosh large-Areas (tough bushes) who love to eat one or the other warped, or lyricisms the wind ball.

The greens are rather unspectacular, but like all the space in good maintenance condition.

The biggest challenge is in addition to the wind, the deflection by the sensational views of the Indian Ocean - Springboks on the fairways! Although the spray times just to the side when the ball strikes or the cart (not necessarily needed, but strong winds quite pleasant) comes too close, but always return to the webs. Since they have been romping on our first visit eight years ago on the court, is to assume that it is permanent guests. (Are perhaps too lazy myself to pluck grass and wait for it to mow them the green keeper?) In any case, very original!

Conclusion: Due views and fauna necessarily (re) play. Also quietly take a detour to get there - it's worth! The place has loosely 4.5 star earned (the "golf ranking Bear": 9 out of 10 points).

Price-performance ratio is absolutely

Certainly the place is not comparable to Pinnacle Point, but much cheaper. We have per person paid as a guest of a nearby B & B just 15 EUR. A cart is not required because no gradients.
The condition of the place was perfectly fine.

A place to relax

After Pinnacle Point, invites this court with its broad, fair and manicured fairways and greens to relax. You can merrily go play. The roughs have left a rather dry impression. The asphalt roads are unfortunately not sandy, and the wind is light brown in this area. Sometimes you will be accompanied by a lovely family springbok that detracts a little from a golf. The staff is friendly, and the clubhouse easy.
The saying "you can see the sea from all the tees" has its accuracy. Although you always see the sea, but also the houses partially in front of it.
