With a well-known reputation, golf in Cape Town offers top ranked courses with contrasting styles, but more recently, this region has been recognized as a #1 foodie destination in 2016 ranked by Conde Nast. Nothing pairs better with a great golf experience than a post round meal that fuses golf and gastronomy like never before. Many Cape Town golf courses sit snuggly up against towering stone-exposed mountains, which shelters the layouts, especially in the Steenberg and Stellenbosch areas, from the prevailing winds. This can lead to unique micro climates and mixed playing conditions highlighted by golf experiences in and amongst vineyards that never disappoint. While golf courses in Cape Town are well known for their shot values, grape variety on the golf properties here has also become a unique selling point. When the course’s own wine bottles find their way into people’s homes, it gives new meaning to the phrase ‘eat, sleep, and play golf’
