Note: the course has re-opened for visitors, with social distancing and Covid-19 safety guidelines
Cotswold Downs boasts one of South Africa's finest and most impeccably manicured golf courses. Designed by Peter Matkovich to USGA specifications, this magnificent 18-hole championship parklands type course blends seamlessly with its surrounds, and features bent grass greens, undulating fairways and outstanding natural water features. A mixture of cool season and summer grasses allow the course to be lush all year round.

The fairways are punctuated by dams, wetlands and ponds that attract a variety of birds and insects, and the course is laid out in such a way as to allow golfers to enjoy the natural surrounds thanks to excellent elevation techniques and the clever placement of tee boxes.

Both beginners and experienced golfers will find the course challenging but enjoyable, and at a length of 6193 metres, golfers can expect the odd long par 5 which will test their driving skills, with cleverly placed bunkers and water hazards adding to the challenge.

Between the 12th and 13th holes, my cart stopped working… I called the pro shop and they said they’d dispatch another cart… after 20 minutes, I called again as no cart arrived. I was assured a cart was on the way. I called again 7 or so minutes later as no cart had arrived still. The replacement  cart eventually arrived 31 minutes later. After the round I went to go speak to who was in charge. The explanation I got was that the staff was at fault and they were having staff problems generally , and beyond that it was an attitude of it’s tough luck which I found quite poor.

The whole experience was one of class, very nice facilities, service at the halfway house perhaps not the best, but adequate. The golf course was in very good condition and an absolute treat to play, will definitely be back!
