Where2Golf says: 

Rondebosch Golf Club: Like Mowbray GC, its immediate neighbour to the north, Rondebosch is located less than 10km from Cape Town's famous Waterfront district, and is also flanked by one or two of Cape Town's communication routes. The northern boundary of the course is delineated by the Black River (a canal), the southern boundary by the busy M5 Highway. Three of the most attractive holes are located the furthest away from the road, tightly wrapped around a sweeping bend in the canal. Like its neighbour, many of the holes are nicely tree-lined, and water hazards and good bunkering provide additional solid defences on many holes. With its proximity to the centre of Cape Town and wonderful vistas onto Table Mountain and Devil's Peak, Rondebosch is a popular golf course with both local and visiting golfers. In addition to its mix of natural and distinctly more urban views, it also boasts a variety and abundance of flora and fauna, home to a variety of bird life from cormorants and kingfishers to wild ducks and egrets.

Did you know?

Rondebosch Golf Club, like its neighbour Mowbray, was established, in part, as a by-product of the Cape Golf Club's move in 1910 to a new location in Ottery. Many members of the Cape GC (later Royal Cape) were not keen to travel the extra 10km south to the new location. The Mowbray and Rondebosch clubs were soon established, both of them just north of Rondebosch Common, the former home of the Cape GC; Rondebosch occupies lands that previously made-up the Frazerdale Farm. >> Rondebosch has hosted South African Sunshine Tour events.

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...
