Royal cape was in relatively good condition (jan 2017), even after month of drought. it's a well organised club, friendly reception and a very good coffee shop. The course is flat like a pan, has good bunkers and undulated greens but – and that is really regrettable – after you leave the course, you will not remember one hole. not one sticks out to be something special – a challenge. bottom line: it's OK to play but boring and compared to other courses in CT, too expensive for what you get.

I had higher expectations for the oldest club. Ultimately, a completely normal South African course with no special features. Price / performance is ok and a round too, but you don't have to have played there. There are better places in the area.
With all the time-honored and all respect for the Royal in the name, this parkland course is rather boring to play. The tracks run back and forth between beautiful old trees and you never really know where you are and whether you have not already played the track. The fairways are well maintained, but their grass is cut too long so that the balls hardly roll. That makes the place longer than it is. The greens are also well maintained, but difficult to read. I wouldn't say "you have to play it". There are more interesting and varied places around Cape Town. I rate the price of 850 rand, which I had to pay on Sunday, January 5th, 2020, as "proud".
