Erinvale Golf Course: – Somerset West
Approximately 25 minutes from Wind-Rose Guest House by Car. “Host of the 1996 World Cup of Golf in which thirty two participating nations competed. This is an estate course of two distinctly different nines.

The front nine is on the flat, winding between the many houses in this part of the estate, while the back nine climbs up the lower slopes of the magnificent Helderberg Mountain, with breathtaking views of the coastline from the top holes.” Designed by Gary Player Erinvale’s par 72 championship course boasts some of the country’s most challenging and spectacular holes. Erinvale’s demanding front nine meanders through park-like terrain, whilst the back nine provide a contrasting challenge winding its way through the foothills of the mountains with panoramic views of False Bay. ” – SA Venues
