Course was in reasonably good condition given the season. Pace of play was slow.

Great course. R350 for round I would play any day on because of its quality. Half way house expensive. Lots of waiting for 4 ball ahead of us. Course management of flow was lacking.

Amazing course. Exceptional service. Only reason I did not give a 10 is our T-time was moved for 7:32 to 11:44. Other than that a great experience.

Everything was perfect; experience a +++; club Chair introduced himself even; everything perfect until two members gave us a hard time for slow play. They were a three-ball, and we a four; but with two seniors. We would have gladly let them play through had they asked but, instead they chose a more aggressive verbal exchange. Really too bad ... the only thing to taint an otherwise perfect experience were members. Andre Lemieux (Calgary, Canada)

Reception, service, course and caddy assigen were exemplary. Negatives: - half way house, food not meeting standards of other clubs - caddies fished for jobs. Approaching me on the way to reception .

Almost no sand in the bunkers. When you played a shot the club snagged on the membrane under the sand. Greens were pitch marked and uneven. The worst I have ever seen the course and I used to play there often but that was many years ago

This would have been a 0 rating if it were not for the friendly and helpful lady at reception who went out of her way to assist with rectifying a discrepancy with my booking. I found that the gentleman at the pro-shop was unprofessional, unwilling to assist and borderline rude. The golf course is in fantastic condition however it definitely does not live up to the hype. I would have expected much more from a championship course especially in terms of layout. You are better off playing Glendower or somewhere less prestige such as Irene CC. The greens rolled true and fairways were immaculate nevertheless.

Loved the atmosphere, the service and the challenging holes. Great marshals to keep up the pace and the flow. The course is a beauty.  Really Royal Treatment.
