Lagoon Bay Golf Estate

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 2010

Lagoon Bay Golf Estate: This planned development on South Africa's Garden Route originally envisioned two Retief Goosen Signature golf courses and a luxury 5-star onsite hotel. The courses, Fish Eagle and Fynbosch Links, were designed in collaboration with Phil Jacobs, but ground was never broken to commence their construction. As of end-2016, it seems the two courses will never be built, and the Lagoon Bay Lifestyle Estate will take a different form without golf.

Did you know?

Situated on the historic Hoogekraal farm, one of the oldest farms in the Southern Cape dating back to 1723, the Lagoon Bay Lifestyle Estate is planned to cover an area of more than 800 hectares (2000 acres) of coastal farmland and fynbosch (natural shrubland). Local planning regulations appear to be at the centre of the delays behind implementing the Lagoon Bay project, which is now unlikely to feature the originally envisioned golf courses.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
