Situated at the foot of the majestic Helderberg mountains on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, a town that is also home to one of South Africa's most revered universities.

Good food at an affordable price. The balcony overlooking the golf course is great for sunsets. Seafood was super. Portuguese chicken was soft and moist with a great sauce.

It took 5 hours to play 16 holes. Course very overbooked not enough time between tee times, to complete 18 holes would have taken 6 hours. Staff not welcoming or friendly to visitors. Would not recommend as there are other and much better courses nearby.More
