Where2Golf says: 

Erinvale Golf Club: Deep in Cape wine country, the Erinvale estate contains a wonderfully scenic Gary Player designed layout, with majestic views of the surrounding Helderberg and Hottentots Holland mountains. There is plenty of real estate on the flattish front-nine where water is your main danger, especially close to the greens at the testing par-4 4th, 5th and 6th holes. The par-5 7th is an excellent risk-reward hole, demanding a final carry over a small stream for anyone bold enough to go for the green in two. The quality of the holes and elevation changes increase on the more interesting back-nine. From the 10th hole you start a steady climb that will take you to the layout's highest elevation and some superb mountain and Indian Ocean views. The real estate also climbs to these higher elevations, but seems less noticeable as the fabulous views take over. The tough closing stretch contains an unforgettable downhill par-5 at the 16th, and a very good, long par-4 17th. With an excellent and varied mix of bunkering throughout - Scottish-style pot bunkers, railway sleepered bunkers and some deep revetted bunkers all feature - Erinvale is one of the Cape's most memorable inland courses.

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

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...
