Rondebosch Golf Club’s 18-hole course is rated as a ‘must-play’ amongst golfers. Situated only ten minutes from Cape Town’s city centre, with magnificent views of Devil’s Peak and Table Mountain, the course is a popular choice for local and foreign visitors. Since its establishment in 1911, the Club has built a solid tradition, which is upheld by its strong membership. Continued development and beautification has ensured that the course maintains its excellent condition all year. It remains a challenge to the serious golfer, but is user friendly for the less experienced.
Rondebosch Golf Club has hosted seven consecutive Sunshine Tour events, 2 professional ladies European events and the South African Ladies Amateur Open. The river which winds through the course provides challenges to the players and is home to a variety of bird life; from cormorants and kingfishers to wild ducks, egrets and flamingos.
Kikuyu fairways, always immaculately manicured, provide a superb shot-making surface and the golfer is always greeted with a green parkland effect. Superb drainage systems enable the course to offer a pleasant golfing experience. This parkland course has a distance of 6223m for men off the championship tees and 5197m for the ladies. The course carries a full 72 championship rating from the back tees, but a modest rating of 69 from club tees. The rough is kept relatively short and the few bunkers are well positioned with a firm surface.
The indigenous poa annua greens are rated the best year round greens in Cape Town. They are fairly small and contain subtle breaks, but always putt well.
