• Overview

    We have been travelling to South Africa for over 20 years now, and much as we try to vary the programme each year, when visiting the Western Cape, it would be an injustice not to spend some time in Cape Town!  This year, we are splitting our time between Cape Town and the Winelands, with four nights in each.

    Please see the itinerary page for details of this tour.

    Saturday 10th February – Welcome to Cape Town

    For our time in Cape Town, we are again staying at the luxurious Lagoon Beach Hotel & Spa in Milnerton, with its quite exceptional panoramic views of Table Bay and Table Mountain.  With its perfect setting, ideal location, excellent service, sophisticated rooms and three superb restaurants, we have a wonderful base for stay in Cape Town.  Our rooms for the four nights are all sea-facing rooms.

    Sunday 11th February – Leisure day

    We will have the morning at leisure.  In the afternoon and evening we will head to the V&A Waterfront for some shopping, browsing and relaxation.  If you wish to enjoy the sublime views from the top of Table Mountain, please let me know and myself and Trevor, our driver for the week, will make the necessary arrangements.  We will also plan to have dinner on the Waterfront in the evening.  This day is not designed as a sightseeing day as such, but more of an opportunity to spend some time in and around the famous V&A Waterfront, relax as you see fit, and to then enjoy a super meal in the evening.

    Monday 12th February – Clovelly Golf Club

    We head to what has become our favourite course in the Western Cape over the last two decades, Clovelly.  Clovelly Country Club is one of southern Africa’s most picturesque and challenging courses and boasts undulating fairways, magnificent landscaping and features natural sand dunes that abound the course, as well as many natural water features.  Clovelly really is one of the most enjoyable courses in the Cape and a course that we return to year after year.

    Tuesday 13th February – Milnerton Golf Club

    We travel the short distance from the hotel to Milnerton Golf Club.  The Milnerton course is one of the few genuine links courses in the Cape Town area, and not only is the course a fine challenge, but the panorama of Table Mountain across Table Bay is simply breathtaking.  Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Rietvlei River, this lush links-type course is fairly flat with few trees. With the sea and the lagoon bordering most holes, and the seven beautiful water holes waiting to claim the wayward shot, it offers a truly unique golfing experience.  If we are lucky, we may even spot a school of Dolphins that frequent the area.

    Wednesday 14th February – Departures, wine-tasting, lunch and onward to the Winelands

    We will check out of the hotel mid-morning and head to Constantia, to enjoy some wine-tasting and a lunch.  Lunch should be paid for individually, thus not restricting one’s choice.  At our leisure, we will then head off along False Bay and check-in to the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa. 

    Overnight at Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa, Somerset West

    Thursday 15th February – Ervinale Golf Club     

    Today’s round is on one of South Africa’s best loved golf courses. Erinvale Golf Club hosted the 1996 World Cup of Golf where participants found the course both a golfing challenge and a visual delight. The front 9 holes are built on flat terrain with challenging holes made more difficult by strategic water hazards and an array of different style bunkers. The back 9 holes are on undulating high ground. Again, water and bunkers are the main features with the added test of sloping lies.  With the mountains in the background and False Bay in front of us, the course is not only a great one to play, but the setting encompasses all that is the Western Cape.

    Friday 16th February – De Zalze Golf Club

    We head to the ever popular De Zalze Golf Club today, which is situated within the De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate.  The course was designed by Peter Matkovich, who also designed Leopard Creek, Arabella and Pinnacle Point, amongst others, and who has made the most of the stunning setting and created a course that places a premium on accuracy.  The course has an excellent mix of parkland holes, with its main challenges presented in the form of the water features on several holes, as well as the oak tree lined Blaauwklippen River, which winds its way through the Golf Estate and comes into play at various intervals.  A magnificent golf course, in a truly inspiring setting.

    Saturday 17th February – Ervinale Golf Club      

    It’s on our doorstep, it’s one of the finest courses in the Western Cape, and so we are playing it again!  Erinvale deserves two rounds, to truly appreciate the quality of the course. We will also ensure that there is time to sample and enjoy the atmosphere of the Winelands, with at least one dinner in Stellenbosch for example, and time spent exploring Stellenbosch, Somerset West and the other areas of the wonderful Winelands.

     Sunday 18th February – Departures and onward to the Garden Route

    After breakfast, we check out of the hotel, say farewell to the Western Cape and head to the Garden Route.  The journey will be by plane from Cape Town to George with a transfer from George Airport to Pezula Resort in Knysna.
