Day 1: (Friday) (BGDB)
You depart Cape Town early and head straight to the Worcester Golf Club. This 18 hole Gary Player designed golf course offers a unique golf experience where the player is surrounded by magnificent mountain ranges and beautiful scenery. Only 1 hour’s drive from Cape Town, it is the ideal getaway for your 1st round of golf, situated in the picturesque Breede River Valley.
After playing this challenging course you visit Kleinplasie (Little Farm) Living Museum. This visit will give you some insight as to how people lived in years gone by. Your visit will end with a tasting of their special brandy, which is distilled on sight. A short hop over the mountains of this spectacular valley finds you in the seaside town of Hermanus (land based whale watching capital of the world June – November). Depending on the group size you will either stay in one of the B&B’s close to the golf course, or in a hotel in the town centre. Dinner will be enjoyed at the Burgundy restaurant
Day 2: (Saturday) (BGSB)
After breakfast you head to the Hermanus Golf Club for round 2. South Africa’s foremost golf course architect, Peter Matkovich, was retained to infuse his special brand of flair and experience to maximise the potential on this scenic and gentle landscape. The flair is immediately noticeable in the use of new water and rocky features, as well as the introduction of visually pleasant grassy mounds adding definition and shape to the holes.
After your round you head to the new harbour and set sail on a whale watching trip (weather permitting June – November) in search of these majestic and fascinating ocean mammals. Tonight you can enjoy dinner at your leisure.
Day 3: (Sunday) (BG)
After breakfast and check out you head to the Arabella Golf Estate in Kleinmond for round 3. This beautiful course has been voted among the top 5 golf courses in South Africa by both Golf Digest and the Compleat Golfer Magazines. The Arabella Golf Club, home to the Nelson Mandela Invitational, stretches through rolling fairways, deceptive bunkers and challenging water traps. The Nelson Mandela Invitational is a charity event which raises money for underprivileged children.
We return to Cape Town via spectacular Clarence Drive, along the False Bay coastline, which has been said by some to resemble “Big Sir” in California.
May Your Drives be Long and Your Putts Few!
