Nestled in a valley, really quiet, lots of wildlife and some interesting holes. The greens were sanded when we played but I think that the course is in good condition. Seemed very forgiving and not so long but a really nice course and treat in comparison to the typical holiday type courses. Club house is a bit tired but the... More

We only had time to play 9 holes but we thought the course was great. Well laid out and interesting to play and very open. We rented a cart and clubs. The other golfer who joined us had a caddy and he helped us as well. Boy, did we love that! He was very good and if you could follow... More

Great course and fees and equipment very reasonable, Food and drink cheap. Compulsory half way break for drink and cake!! Lots of baboons on course and we had no problems. Took us around 4.5 hours so ok as long as you are not in a rush.

Demanding course with some tight tree lined fairways and several changes in elevation. Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Requires all the clubs and creative shotmaking. Staff great and local players friendly and inclusive.

We played Plett on the Monday. I have always rated this course very highly, both as a test of golf, as well as aesthetically very pleasing with many birds and bush buck. The condition of the course was really good, the greens very true and a pleasant speed (I prefer faster greens, which these are). The course is very well... More

An interesting course which should be played if you are in this part of the garden route. We went back and played it again as we enjoyed it the first time even without scoring too well! About 15 baboons came and joined us on one of the fairways with a couple of youngsters playing on the green! Gents loos could... More

I have always rated this course highly and this year it is in its best condition ever. Greens better than Simola, fairways better than Knysna. After a mixup over my booking the starter was very accommodating and I had a great round with a 3 ball from England. In my view this is the best value course in the area,... More
