Lying in the shadow of Table Mountain and the Cape Town Stadium on the Green Point Common, the course belies the 9 hole status and 14 greens. With long and or separate tees, together with 14 world class greens, the course plays very much like an 18 hole layout.
The large greens and wide fairways make the course very playable for the average amateur while still a test for the lower handicapper. The course is parkland in design with Bent Grass greens and Kikuyu fairways. The golf course was designed in conjunction with the highly acclaimed Green Point Urban park and is therefore a biodiversity showcase with abundant fauna and flora. Four different species of local grasses have been planted in various grassland areas that separate the holes, giving the course a very distinctive look. While situated on the coast, the course is protected from the prevailing winds and this facilitates the ability to keep the course in a superb playing condition.
The course designer, Mark Muller, has created something of real significance, and the variation of holes together with the close proximity of the City of Cape Town and Waterfront, makes this a must play course. The tough par five 12th and the closing par three 18th over water will leave you with lasting memories of this wonderful layout.
