Day 2 – Golf at Royal Cape Golf Club

Helpful hint: We know it’s hard to pry yourself from the bustling streets and corner cafes of the Mother City, but we suggest heading up Table Mountain, via cable car, the first chance you get. The weather dictates the pace for this excursion, and the weather in Cape Town can be unpredictable, so to avoid disappointment, we suggest you head for the ‘table top’ as soon as mother nature gives you the ‘all clear’.

The Cape of Good Hope is also situated in the reserve – it’s easily spotted by the 238m high lighthouse that towers above the waves. You can access this historical building by way of an exhilarating 3-minute ride in the ‘Flying Dutchman’ funicular that carries visitors from the lower station at 127m above sea-level, to the upper station.
With so much on offer, you’ll want to have your camera ready to capture all the beautiful and historic sites held in this protected space.

Royal Cape Golf Club 

Over more than 100 years the golf course at Royal Cape has evolved into what it is today, a classic parkland course that provides a fine test of golf as well as a wonderful playing experience. The course is in superb year round condition with well grassed fairways, smooth greens and challenging bunkers.

Although the course is on flat terrain, the playing of Royal Cape is subject to three of nature’s beguiling offerings: a near constant wind to challenge you, sweeping mountain views to charm you and water features to ensnare you.

Royal Cape is without doubt one of the best and most challenging courses to play both in the Western Cape and the country. It is a course of championship stature, playing to a par of 72, which has hosted the SA Open ten times as well as many other professional and top amateur events. Winners at Royal Cape include Gary Player, Ernie Els, Mark McNulty and Trevor Immelman.

Tree lined with narrow fairways and subtle USGA spec built greens, Royal presents a traditional test of golf, although the numerous ponds and lakes teeming with bird life provide beauty and distraction along the way.
