I was persuaded by a friend to play once more on this course, after it commissioned its new greens. A very bad decision on my part. Whilst the greens are new, they have more sand on them than Bondi beach. Standing downwind from them is not advisable. One is in danger of being sand-blasted. Many fairways are being re-turfed with... More

The golf course condition is very poor. Two holes are unplayable from being the premier golf course in the western cape,it has deteriorated to a very poor course badly in need of closure till the renovation works are completed. Avoid. It's a shame as I have fond memories of playing here.

Played there yesterday. Beautiful views and some challenging hole. A lot of work being done on the fairways and they were a bit scrubby in places. Greens decent to put on. Lovely bar and restaurant area. Club had a stipulation that each group hired a local caddie. My caddie was useful on occasion but I would have liked to have... More

The estate advertised with "experience the spectacular improvements to our course" talking about their renovated greens, but they forgot to tell us (and others) how bad the fairways were and how much repair work that was going on, on fairways and aprons. And no reduction in greenfee was offered! We ordered and was assured that a buggy would be available,... More

Good Day: I am sorry you did not have an enjoyable experience with us. At this time of year our golf cart fleet has to do 36 holes to accommodate the morning and afternoon fields. The Pro Shop should have communicated better to you that the cart was still out in the field but would be ready for your tee... More

I have played Steenberg Golf Club many times over the years – it has been one of my favourite golf courses in SA. On January 23 I played it again with 7 friends and I must say I was it was one of my worst golf experiences ever! Several of the fairways are being refurbished and consequently fairways from approx.... More

Dear Sir, My apologies about your unsatisfactory round at Steenberg GC. We are currently doing some cultural practices on a few of the fairways to replace grass that has died off. The issue with the sand on the greens was a supplier issue and should not have effected play as it did. Please contact me at golfdir@steenberggolfclub.co.za as I would... More

Just enjoyed a perfect afternoon of golf. Super course and the staff could not be more helpful. The food was excellent. So nice to see everyone smiling and pleased to help. The manager even helped us to book into another course nearby on a different day because Steenberg was fully booked. Thank you!

The club sells itself as one of the highest rated golf clubs in RSA and charges one of the highest green fees in the country. You can imagine the disappointment of our group when playing it, we found it to be in dire condition. The practice green is reasonable and green, the actual greens are largely bereft of grass and...

Green fee R1135 which is the most expensive in Cape Town. The course is good if not spectacular and totally overpriced. I find the staff in the main arrogant. As golfers who play at least 3 times a week during an annual 10/12 wks annually we play all courses but this is the course that we play least due to... More
