Erinvale Golf Club, nestled at the foothills of the Helderberg and Hottentot Holland mountains in Somerset West near Cape Town is one of South Africa’s great golfing challenges. Designed by Gary Player, and the venue for the 1996 World Cup of golf, Erinvale’s beautifully manicured par 72 championship course boasts some of the country’s most challenging and spectacular golf holes. Erinvale’s breathtaking mountain and sea views are an integral part of this unforgettable golfing experience. Erinvale’s demanding front nine meanders through parklike terrain, whilst the back nine provide a contrasting challenge as it winds its way through the foothills of the mountains with panoramic views of False Bay.

    Challenging layout especially off the back markers.
