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.

The course was fantastic. The caddies were also very helpful. My only issue was the 4-ball ahead of us was playing slow. It help us up, and the to groups behind us.

We were unlucky in that they were doing a mini hollow tyning and some of the fairways had been scarified. The greens are fantastic and we had a great day despite the wind. Thank you
