I want to play this course!

The De Zalze Golf Club has the complete Winelands Experience and offers you a great golf course, fantastic 19th hole views, fabulous food, great wines and stylish on-site lodge accommodation making it the preferred all-on-one destination for many visiting the region.

Beautiful vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields adjacent to most fairways create a natural buffer between golf and residences. The landscape is all so natural with the meandering Blaauwklippen river and the incredible views of the surrounding mountains making this Winelands experience very unique.

De Zalze Golf Course offers a fine mix of parkland holes, its main defences being the water features on several of the holes. The oak-lined Blaauwklippen River winds its way through the golf estate and comes into play at various intervals. Renowned golf course architect, Peter Matkovich, designed the De Zalze Golf Course, making most of the stunning setting while placing a premium on accuracy.

For a fact
