Golf at Erinvale

The Erinvale Golf Club is a private club where guests of the Erinvale Estate hotel play as members. This Gary Player designed 18 hole championship golf course has fast become renowned throughout the golfing fraternity, both locally and abroad. Erinvale hosted the 1996 World Cup of Golf, where thirty two participating nations competed and found the course both a golfing challenge and visual delight. On the course are two different moods. The first nine holes are built on flat terrain with challenging holes made more difficult by strategic water hazards and an array of different style bunkers. These range from traditional large, well-shaped bunkers to some with railway sleepers holding up steep, sandy slopes. Sod bunkers that are challenging yet aesthetically pleasing complete the picture. The second nine holes are on endulately high ground. Here the scenic splendor might distract the players from the continuing challenge. Again, water and bunkers are the main features with the added test of sloping lies. The greens at Erinvale are huge and well-shaped allowing for several different pin placements. A feature of the layout is that different coloured flags tell you the position of the pin, blue flags at the back, white in the middle and red at the front. Erinvale is also a real estate development where homes blend well into the landscape.Through its own memberships, the hotel offers reduced golfing rates for its guests. Besides Erinvale, the Cape has many other fine golf courses such as Stellenbosch, Royal Cape, Paarl, Arabella and Milnerton Links. The Western Cape is indeed a golfers paradise.
