Pinnacle Point Golf Course – Mosselbay

Pinnacle Point Golf Course – Mosselbay

The Pinnacle Point Golf Course is something truly unique for the discerning golfer. This 18 hole championship golf course was designed by the well-known South African golf course architect Peter Matkovich who opened the course together with Top Irish Tour Golf Professional Darren Clarke in November 2006.

I want to play this course!

Darren Clarke, who was also involved with many aspects of the Pinnacle Point course design, has said Pinnacle Point is “… the best golf course on the planet.” Pinnacle Point was selected as one of the Top Ten New Golf Courses of the World for 2006 by the American publication Travel and Leisure in January 2007.

This cliff top Fynbos golf course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breathtaking terrain. The 72 par layout is characterised by 7 majestic holes that line the Indian Ocean rock cliffs, 4 of which are played over ocean and cliff. All of the 18 holes have been designed to fit the lay of the land and it’s a true testament to the spectacular design that this was achieved.

The reintroduction of the endemic fauna and flora to this estate has been hailed as a remarkable achievement by local and international ecologists and the preservation of this pristine Fynbos is an ongoing commitment by the Pinnacle Point Beach and Golf Resort.

For a fact
  • Pinnacle Point is located on four hundred hectares of prime land, of which 100 hectares is nature reserve, home to indigenous wildlife, birdlife and 264 varieties of fynbos!
