Where2Golf says: 

Milnerton Golf Club: Laid out between the Atlantic Ocean and the Rietvlei lagoon, Milnerton is a spacious links golf course that provides fabulous views across Table Bay and onto the unparalleled splendour of Table Mountain. The city and harbour of Cape Town also come stunningly into view from several holes. This wonderfully natural environment, created by so many ocean and lagoon-side holes, is slightly compromised (from a links purist's standpoint), by the presence of two stretches of real estate, which flank several holes in the middle section of the course. Although the layout has some holes lacking clear definition (especially if this is your first outing here), the generally good-width fairways laid out on flat terrain, an absence of thick rough, and relatively sparse bunkering, might have you thinking that an easy-going and low-scoring round is in store. However, as with most seaside courses, the biggest determining factor in how you score will inevitably be the wind. If its blowing too fiercely, there are some dangerous water hazards, in addition to the ocean and the lagoon that will be brought even more seriously into play. The combination of links-style terrain and wonderful sea and lagoon views, are really the high points of this course. Almost inevitably, some real estate also gets into the act, but it should not detract from your enjoyment of a round at Milnerton. A force 6 or stronger breeze - well that's a different matter !

Did you know?

Milnerton has hosted several Sunshine Tour events including the PGA South African Masters in 1978 and each year thereafter until 1983. Top American golfer, Calvin Peete, playing the course for the first time, called it a "Mickey Mouse course" after shooting a course record 63 in perfect playing conditions. During his second round the Cape Doctor (Cape Town's weather system) blew in, and Peete shot an 83! >> It is not unusual during the winter months to catch sight of whales and dolphins from the oceanside holes.
