Plettenberg Bay Country Club – Plettenberg Bay

Plettenberg Bay Country Club – Plettenberg Bay

The Plettenberg Bay Country Club’s golf course is a popular destination for both local as well as international tourists. Main attraction is the challenging and very attractive layout built to USGA specifications. The course is a walking course, although carts are available for hire.
I want to play this course!

The golf course, consistently featuring in the middle of the Top 100 golf courses in South Africa, is set in a nature reserve. The indigenous flora attracts a large variety of bird life and small animals like antelope, vervet monkeys and baboons. Meandering streams and indigenous bush add to the feeling of being ‘out in the country.’ Yet the popular holiday destination of Plettenberg Bay with its kilometers of unspoiled beaches is only mere minutes away.

The site has also become popular with the local bird-watching club and is home to a large colourful bird known as the Knysna Loerie or Taurco Corythaix, which is generally found in the surrounding Knysna Forest.

In recent years the clubhouse has been upgraded and provides a great venue for special functions like prize givings, birthday parties, social gatherings and corporate meetings. The verandah overlooking the 18th may however distract from the main function as it offers great views over the course and the distant Indian Ocean.
