Where2Golf says: 

The nine-hole course at Cathedral Peak has often been described as one of South Africa's little gems. Located high up in the Drakensberg mountains, you are gauranteed fabulous mountain scenery and plenty of elevation changes throughout. The holes have been laid out along the mountainside, many of them meandering through a valley, next to a babbling riverbed. With rocky outcrops and several water features to be negotiated, your game will be throughly tested as you journey round this magnificently scenic nine-hole golf course.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Cathedral Peak Hotel, which opened its doors to visitors in 1939, is unique in that it falls within the boundaries of the Cathedral Peak Nature Reserve, and nestles right up against the spectacular Cathedral Peak range of mountains. Located in a valley where San bushmen once hunted, it has become one of the most popular hotels in the Natal Drakensberg. Cathedral Peak's popularity owes as much to its magnificent surroundings as it does to its founding family - the van der Riets, and particularly the vision of its founder - Albert van der Riet.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
