George Golf Course – George

George Golf Course – George

The 17th signature hole has always been regarded as one of the best par 3′s in the world! It is a long par 3 that leaves no room for error, and is therefore the 2nd most difficult hole on the back nine. This hole is rated as one of the Top 500 in the World, as well as the best par 3 in South Africa…

I want to play this course!


The George Golf course is a beautifully manicured, 72 par, 18 hole course, with bent greens, set in the heart of the Garden Route. The course rating for men is either 70 (club – 5862m) or 72 (championship – 6162m), while that for the ladies is 72 (5204m).
