Hermanus Golf Club

Mostly Clear
-°C Today, Forecast: -
Hermanus, on the Cape South Coast, is a charming fishing village famous for the whales that come here annually to calve. With its unparalleled scenic beauty, modern infrastructure, upmarket shops and endless adventure options, it’s little wonder that Hermanus has grown in size and popularity during the last decade.

The changes have achieved a great boost to the challenge of this golf course. The improvements have created an opportunity for a real challenge if the course is played from the back tees, while the introduction of different tees (championship, members, seniors and ladies) will allow all levels of golfers to participate in competitions.

The whole feel of the course has been modernised with shaping (fairways, grassy mounds, bunkers, trees and rocky water hazards) all adding a visual, as well as a challenging flow to the course

In 2006, this classic country course has undergone a major overhaul with the introduction of nine new holes, based around a new real estate component, and the charming and gentle layout of the past has been replaced with modern classically designed holes, that have added much to both the visual and challenging aspects of the course, without losing any sense of its former tradition. This tradition, created by original designer Bob Grimsdell, which was based around the gentle mountain surrounds, sea views and country hospitality, and though those ingredients remain, this golfing venue has truly reached a new level. This is not surprising, as South Africa’s foremost golf course architect, Peter Matkovich, was retained to infuse his special brand of flair and experience to maximise the potential on this scenic and gentle landscape. The flair is immediately noticeable in the use of new water and rocky features, as well as the introduction of visually pleasant grassy mounds adding definition and shape to the holes.

Superb new greens and bunkering have been introduced to the course that has been considerably lengthened. The upgrade and redesign are in conjunction with the introduction of real estate pockets that have been cleverly interspersed into this environment without impacting on the original charm of the golfing experience. The new residents on the estate and regular visitors will tell the first time visitor that the popularity of the area has in recent years been augmented by international visitors, who have discovered that Hermanus has the best land-based whale-watching in the world. The Hermanus Whale Festival, held annually, has become one of the Cape’s most attended events and the Southern Right whales are pleased to entertain us while they return to calve in this delightful part of the Cape.

The course was in good condition but on the day we played it was very hot and we had a 5 1/2 hour round. Also our caddies were not of a standard we'd come to expect. The staff at the booking desk were very good and helpful.

Great company on our round, wonderful wildlife (springboks, guinea fowl, etc), very professional organisation to get everyone off on time at this very popular course. Toilets on the course and a halfway house to stop at. Awesome backdrop of mountains.  Fairways in great condition, greens too.

A score of eight would have been bettered but for the poor after round service in the bar area. It was obvious that there are too few staff serving this busy area and at this time of the year. The golf side of things was as ever faultless. I would advise the higher handicapper to play from the blue tees if they want to enjoy their round and adjust their handicaps accordingly.
