Royal Cape Golf Club

Course information:

Royal Cape Golf Club is the oldest club in South Africa. It was given its Royal title in 1910 after a visit by the Duke of Connaught. Against the setting of the Table Mountain range, Royal Cape offers an enjoyable golfing adventure for players of all skill levels.


Essentially it is a flat parklands course, well maintained and with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. Narrow fairways demand extreme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots are penalised by trees and the greens are well bunkered. There is plenty of water, notably at the corner of the 3rd, 4th, 5th and also the 14th, 15th and 16th.


Royal Cape is the current host of the Lion of Africa Cape Town Open, played in November, and has hosted the South Africa Open (2nd oldest open in the world) on no fewer than 10 occasions.
