The Homestead Resort (Old course)


3+ (3 gold): one of our top-rated 3-star courses, worthy of 3½ stars.
   The Homestead Resort (Old course) Est. 1892

Where2Golf says: 

The Homestead Resort owns and operates two 18-hole championship courses, which include the Old course, located alongside the resort hotel, and the highly-rated Cascades course, located in Healing Springs, 3.5 miles from the main resort centre.

The Old course is a well-rated and pleasantly testing layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

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...
