Great back nine!

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.

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

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...

This is just the ticket for the average golfer. Well maintained and presented it is neither particularly long nor heart-breaking but it is good fun. Clearly the front nine has yet to mature but the back nine is very reminiscent of country links courses in UK. The Halfway House is well stocked with tempting aromas for the 10 minute compulsory...

Goose Valley course is always very well presented and in great condition. Despite 24 hours of rain the course was dry which amazed me (Plettenberg CC was very boggy). Staff are always very pleasant and there is a new Pro there now. The food side has recently been taken over and they have a very good menu. The seafood curry... More

The golf course is in excellent condition, and caters for the average holiday golfer. The holes are relatively short, and the greens and fairways are surely the best in SA. The gardens in the estate are magnificent and a real joy to see. However, be careful being ripped off by the waitresses in the clubhouse. On the same day, I... More
