Where2Golf says: 

George Golf Club: With many new and stunning golf developments springing up along the Garden Route in recent years, there is still much to admire and enjoy at one of the area's older layouts. George Golf club is an excellent parkland course, set against the stunning backdrop of the Outeniqua mountains. Plenty of mature trees of many varieties, as well as some more recent plantings, attractively line the fairways, while well-placed bunkers guard the often large and subtly sloping greens. The gently undulating front-nine gives way to some more pronounced elevation changes on the back-nine. Several holes are played from nicely elevated tees, not least the excellent signature hole, the 17th, which is often rated one of the best par-3's in South Africa. Water is not a significant "risk" factor on the majority of this layout, but a small lake comes threateningly into play on the opening hole, a deceptively difficult short par-4, and at the longer and very testing par-4 18th. Accurate driving will be needed to maximise scoring opportunities, although things generally don't get overly tight around this very pleasurable and mature parkland course.

Did you know?

Golf was first played in George back in 1886, since when the club and course have moved a few times. The current course was laid out in the early 1930's. >> George, the city, is the sixth oldest colonial town in South Africa, and was the first founded under British rule. Timber production from the vast Outeniqua forests was the main reason the Dutch East India Company established a woodcutters outpost on the site in 1776. It was originally named Georgetown, after the then reigning monarch, George III.

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...
