With over 130 years of proud history and tradition, Royal Cape Golf Club is South Africa's official home of golf. The oldest golf club in South Africa has evolved into what it is today, a classic 18-hole championship parkland course - tree lined with narrow fairways, subtle USGA spec built greens and challenging bunkers.

Although the course is on flat terrain, the playing of Royal Cape is subject to three of nature's beguiling offerings: a near constant breeze, sweeping Table Mountain views and a number of beautiful water features.

Royal Cape Golf Club has hosted the SA Open on ten occasions as well as many other professional and top amateur events. Winners at Royal Cape include Gary Player, Ernie Els and Mark McNulty. Royal Cape is designed to accommodate players of all skill levels, and visitors are most welcome to join us for a truly memorable Royal golfing experience.

Really old course. Everything very colonial style. Quite long but extremely flat. Nothing really exciting but nice to play.

A lot of old-fashioned DNA in the course. Although flat, the routing is well done.

Nice layout, greens good considering they have recently been hollow tined, some of the fairways were rather tatty though hence the 7 Could do with a manicure.

The staff are excellent. Poor quality of left handed rentals. The course has a lot of history but is not maintained very well.

I guess it has been an awesome experience, taking into consideration the water shortage in Cape Town the course is looking great.
