De Zalze's trademark is that you do have to change your clubs on the tee. Different holes requires different shots. My favourite hole, is the 17th, par 5,...you really have to think this one over. Fantastic clubhouse.

We really enjoy this golf course in the middle of the wine lands. It was not in the best of conditions (fairways) but it has some really interesting holes particularly on the back nine. It is a good course to walk but only if you bring your own trolley. Good after game lunch opportunities ate available within the property or... More

Dear Chris Thank you for taking the time to write this positive review - much appreciated!

Managed to get on at short notice for a practice game two days before a competition, so glad I did, it was worth playing more than once. Security is tight, have passport or driving licence to hand, but once in, you are welcomed by helpful and professional staff from Pro shop, Changing rooms, Halfway House, Bar, Marshalls and Caddy staff...

Fabulous course – I particularly enjoyed holes 8-18. I always think the mark of a course is how many holes you remember after the round and I can honestly say that I remember most. The warm welcome and breathtaking views make lunch on the terrace a must!

De zalze golf is a lovely course and well maintained but it is allways fully booked. So if you do not book a year in advance you can not play. The course is too crowded. We ( group of three) stayed 1 month on the estate and we could only play 9 holes in the whole month.

Course,caddies and ground staff were excellent. Badly let down by having the half way house up lots of steps and incorporated into the general lounges/bars etc. Yesterday's sandwiches served up and poorly trained staff unable to respond to complaint. Such a pity for a lovely course and environment.

From clubhouse, caddy master to visitors a friendly and relaxing service. The course by itself was in good condition (cobsidering the watering restrictions here). Not always an easy course but very fair. The only balls lost are in the water obstacles. Many players due to 6 min teetimes but we've never felt being pushed. A you'll have to play course.
