The Western Cape is so different to the rest of South Africa. It’s tacked onto the bottom of Africa – the full stop of the exclamation mark that is this amazing continent. Without a doubt, though, the Western Cape is South Africa’s most visited province, and it’s hardly surprising. With the lovely city of Cape Town and the unbelievably beautiful Garden Route, there is so much to see. Even the relatively spartan West Coast has its own charm, as does the dry and relatively monochromatic, but dramatic, Karoo. The Cape Floral Region is also one of the most diverse and unique in the world, is a world heritage site. Some of the great attractions are: Helderberg Nature Reserve, Cape of Good Hope, Table Mountain, beaches, mountains, Kirstenbosch Nature Reserve, Game Reserves and much more…
There is hardly another place that offers such a variety of excellent and interesting golf courses. Embedded in magnificent landscapes, the most beautiful places are right at your doorstep.
