The Royal Cape Golf Club in Mowbray Cape Town, was the first golf club in South Africa, opened in 1890, and used by the British Officers stationed in the Cape. The lovely views of Table Mountain from most holes makes for a truly memorable occasion.
Host to the South African Open no less than eleven times the most recent was in 1996, won by Ernie Els, the new harder greens of the Royal Cape Golf Club course makes for exciting play.
The layout of the Royal Cape Golf Course and the blustery conditions experienced in the Cape can cause ever the most professional golfer problems. The latest Vodacom Players Championship in December 2000, resulted in only seven players breaking par for the tournament.
The Royal Cape Golf Course is a fine test of your golfing skills, wayward shots are penalised by trees and the greens are well bunkered. The most difficult holes on the course are the par 4 third, 435 m the longest two shotter on the course and the par 4, 4th that is played into the prevailing South Easter with water guarding the right side of the green.
