Great ambience - you can overlook the putting practice green or the lovely swimming pool. Service was prompt and helpful. Ordered the curry, gnocchi and fish and chips. All the meals were great. Good wine available per glass, and a range of beers also available on tap. Reasonably priced.

Booked on Airbnb. Lovely surroundings. Perfect for winefarm visits in Paarl Franchoek and Wellington on areas. Still building houses so incomplete as yet. Great clubhouse with casual outside bar meals and inside restaurant. Pool seafood. Nice walks around the estate. Car necessary to get anywhere.

This is a well established and maincured golf courses ranked amongst the best in the Cape. It was a nice experience but the layout was fairly flat, straight and uneventful - a nice championship lay out but for most holdiay golfers other courses like Arabella, Erinvale, Clovelly or Milnerton will give you a more memorable experience.

We have been visiting Peal Valley for many consecutive year and usually played the course at least 14 times each time. We really like the golf course design, the perfect condition and the lovely ground staff. However, this year we where somewhat disappointed. The green fee must have increased with at least 50% and as coming from europe there are... More

Popped in with friends for a quick, light lunch. We decided on fish and chips and the calamari starter enlarged to a main course. All our meals were great! Very friendly service added to the enjoyment, as well as the comfortably decorated restaurant. Will be back for dinner soon, and to see what kind of children's menu is available.

This is a beautiful course but pace of play is ridiculously slow because members/residents are poor golfers with no etiquette. Absolutely no chance they will let a 2 ball pass. Over 5 1/2 hours for a round of golf with a buggy is a joke. Overpriced golf course. Save your money!

Rounds are slow here because you don't need a handicap certificate and there are lots of older types hacking about struggling through the 18 holes. Greens speedy and true but full of unrepaired pitch marks. When I'm on a golf course I want to be in nature not on a housing estate. Too commercial for me.

This is a lovely course but pretty expensive around this area. We were accommodated by the helpful pro-shop since there was no record of our tee time reservation.
