Did you know?

King George V conferred the Royal title on Port Alfred GC in 1924, based on a visit in 1923 by Prince Arthur & Princess Alexander of Connaught. Prince Arthur, one of Queen Victoria's 42 grandchildren, was Governor General of South Africa at the time; his wife Princess Alexander was a great-grandaughter of Queen Victoria and granddaughter of Edward VII. There are four golf clubs in South Africa honoured by royal prerogative: Royal Cape (1910), Royal Port Alfred (1924), Royal Johannesburg (1931) and Royal Durban (1932).

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
