Day 2 - Cape Town

After an early breakfast at Cape Town Lodge, we suggest heading off to the Clovelley Country Club for a round on the golf course. Tucked away in the lovely Clovelly Valley, surrounded by golden sand dunes, Clovelly Country Club is one of the Cape Peninsula’s hidden treasures. Situated on the peninsula’s narrow strip of land between Fish Hoek and the warm waters of False Bay to the east, and Chapman’s Peak and the cold Atlantic Ocean to the west, it is a challenging, aesthetically-pleasing and immaculately kept course. Opened in 1924, the course has excellent fairways and POA Bent grass greens. Featuring a very rural atmosphere with plenty of trees and rich birdlife, the course is surrounded by towering mountain ranges and sand dunes. Overnight Cape Town Lodge Board basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 3 - Cape Town

After an early breakfast at Cape Town Lodge, we suggest heading off to the Royal Cape Golf Club for more golf. The history of the Royal Cape Golf Club dates back to the turn of the century; however, the existing course was only finalised in the early 1930s. The course sprawls across the Cape Flats, with the holes well spaced-out and divided by trees, thick bush and scrub. A large dam comes into play on the third, fourth and fifth holes making this a somewhat watery corner of the course. All in all, it is a very demanding course with narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers and fast greens. Several times host to the SA Open, Royal Cape Golf Club is certainly one of the best tests of golf in the country.  Overnight Cape Town Lodge Board basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 4- Oudtshoorn

After an early breakfast at Cape Town Lodge we suggest beginning your journey to Oudtshoorn. Selftours would recommend travelling along ‘Route 62? the longest wine route in the world. De Opstal is situated in the picturesque Schoemanshoek Valley, 12 km from Oudtshoorn en route to the Cango Caves. The Lodge consists of original farm buildings, circa 1830, stables, wagon house, farmhouse, share cropper’s house, garden and pool rooms all restored to provide comfort, with garden entrances, air-conditioning, fireplaces, mini bar and TV with MNet multi channels. Cosy with intimate bathrooms. Relax in the salt water swimming pool set in lush gardens and enjoy traditional dishes in the rustic restaurant. A working ostrich farm offering farm tours.  Overnight De OpstalBoard basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 5 - Knysna

After breakfast at De Opstal, we suggest heading to the Cango Caves and doing a tour of this fascinating cave system, after this you are free to visit any attraction that may be of interest to you. After a scenic 2 hour drive to Knysna, you can check into the Knysna Hollow Hotel. Your hotel is set on secluded old country estate near Knysna's famous lagoon and offers comfortable bedrooms. The main manor house, built in a bygone era, has high pressed ceilings and yellowwood floors and houses the restaurant and adjoining bar, where fine cuisine and Cape wines are enjoyed in a relaxed environment.  Overnight Knysna Hollow Board basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 6 - Knysna

After an early breakfast at Knysna Hollow, we suggest heading off to Plettenberg Bay Country Club for a round of golf. Plettenberg Bay Country Club is an integral part of the social fabric of Plettenberg Bay. Whilst members regularly enjoy the privileges of the club and take their golf seriously, holidaymakers and tourists are welcome to play the eighteen-hole golf course as well as enter the Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday competitions. The entire course is a proclaimed Nature Reserve and playing the course is quite therapeutic, no traffic noise, no intrusive houses - instead there are lush fairways, majestic trees and an abundance of birdlife. While the course is not long, driving accuracy is essential for dealing with the Piesang River, which meanders through the course. During the year 2002 all greens were upgraded to U.S.G.A. specifications, new bunkers and water features were introduced lifting the quality of the course to a new level, up there with the best.  Overnight Knysna Hollow Board basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 7 - Knysna

After an early breakfast at Knysna Hollow, Selftours suggest heading off to Fancourt Country Club for today’s golf. Bramble Hill is the fourth course at Fancourt, but it has a character all of its own. Built in response to a need for an 18-hole facility that would be accessible to the community of George and surrounding areas, Bramble Hill is truly a public golf course in the sense that there are no restrictions on who can play at any given time. Bramble Hill offers a golf experience that is relaxed and friendly, without any “private country club?intimidation! The golf course itself is challenging enough to test the most proficient golfer, yet it is sure to be an enjoyable round even for beginners.  Overnight Knysna Hollow Board basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 8 - Stellenbosch

After breakfast at Knysna Hollow, you will have the opportunity to see any last sights you would like to take in, in Knysna. After this it is time to drive through the Garden Route back towards Cape Town. Shortly before Cape Town you check into the Spier Hotel in Stellenbosch, the heart of the Cape Winelands. Spier Estate just outside Stellenbosch in the heart of the world-renowned Cape winelands, is only 15 minutes from the beaches of Gordon's Bay and the Strand and a quick 30-minute drive from central Cape Town. Spier offers many entertainment and leisure options for both the relaxed and the robust. Meticulous renovation has restored the gracious Cape Dutch buildings to their former glory and today the scenic surroundings set the stage for a celebration of the finer things in life.  Overnight Spiers Wine Estate.  Board basis is Bed & Breakfast.

Day 9 - Stellenbosch

After breakfast at The Spier Hotel, you head off on the estate to the De Zalze Golf Course for a round of golf. De Zalze Country Club opened in the latter part of 2000. The golf course forms part of the splendid multi-faceted Spier estate and the Peter Matkovich design has added another quality product to the estate. This is a course that immediately received high praise for its layout in the midst of working vineyards and orchards. The Stellenbosch mountain range acts as a constant backdrop, adding to the reputation the golf course has gained for its scenic surrounds. Since its opening much has been done to mature the course to perfection. Especially the recently opened new club house has received high praise from all who visit it.  Overnight Spiers wine estateBoard basis is Bed & Breakfast.
