Plettenberg Bay is home to two beautiful golf courses – but the golfing experience doesn’t stop there. Combined with spectacular views and an abundance of animal and plant life, Plett will leave all golfers feeling rejuvenated and satisfied – no matter the score!
Goose Valley Golf Club is situated in pristine surroundings, only 4km from Plettenberg Bay, bordering on the Keurbooms Lagoon, access to the Club is from the N2. This magnificent golf estate offers a splendid Gary Player-designed 72 par, 18-hole signature golf course in the heart of the Garden Route and is ranking within the top 18 best conditioned courses in SA. Golfers will experience breathtaking views of the Keurbooms Lagoon, the Indian Ocean, the spectacular Tsitsikamma Mountains and the famous Robberg Peninsula. The beauty of the natural fynbos, indigenous trees and an abundance of animal and bird life add a special dimension to your golfing experience.
Ranked no 52 in South Africa by the golf magazines, Plettenberg Bay Country Club has an 18 hole par 72 golf course set in a private nature reserve as well as 2 magnificent bowling greens and 4 all weather tennis courts. The highly rated course is a very popular tourist destination. The course is easy to walk, but golf cars are always available for the not so energetic. Lush Kikuyu grass fairways and bayview greens recently over seeded to bent grass provides golfers with an excellent playing surface, with year round consistency, on this parkland golf course. Despite intense competition from the beautiful white beaches and rolling surf, the club is busy and booking is essential.
