My son, husband and I played 18 holes here at the end of January. We had read a critical review before playing so were a little nervous that we would be disappointed, especially after playing Simola. No need to be - this is a lovely course - challenging but playable for all of us (handicaps range from 10 to 28).... More

Friendly and helpful staff in the pro shop. The course is generally in good condition, lush fairways, greens run true. Slightly undulating course, modern light trolley, electric trolley or buggy preferable. Course is not too tight and has some pretty, and interesting holes. Good long and challenging 15th par 4. Only negative is the amount of people on the course,... More

Restaurant (we didn't use the golf facilities) with good views at the golf fields. Peaceful, enough parking space, and inside a spacious restaurant. The people serving are just lovely. The food is nothing special, it lacks greens and (for me) too heavy. Nevertheless a good experience because of the setting and the kind people.

This course is laid out around a housing estate and next to the N2. So expect a lot of road noise. Some of the holes are a bit contrived to suit the needs of the houses and rather annoying to have to walk between the houses a lot. Having said this the greens were fantastic and really tricky. The bunkers... More

The wonderful layout and immaculate condition of the course is a pleasure to behold. Such a wonderful treat to sit on the verandah and watch the golfers completing their rounds. It remains a must for travellers to Plett

the course is pretty average, and the first nine holes a bit of a mish mash. The second 9 is much, much better. Pro shop and food both good, service slow though.

We have been visiting friends here since 2004 and loved the course , however we last came in 2013 3 years ago .The difference in the standard of the course was very noticeable with the greens in poor condition and the Tees also worn . There were a lot of staff busy trimming edges to paths and painting distance markers... More

We enjoyed our round of golf at Goose Valley. We were fortunate to play with a lovely couple who visit there every year. The course is well maintained and it was lovely to be able to walk around it without having to take a buggy.

This Gary Player golf course is rather average, not very long but good value. I would not rate it, as others have, pristine or delightful. The staff at the Pro shop were polite and efficient but not the most welcoming of people. Lots of 'mature' players, pensioners mostly. Food very average and not great service.

Knowing that they have the annual holiday visitors pretty well trapped is no reason for this country course to charge prices comparable to Top 20 courses. While the course itself is in pristine condition - lush fairways; slow but true greens; consistent sand-traps and rough which properly punishes poor shots - it is short (Less than 6,000m) and visitors are...
