Course Info

The 18-hole course opened in 2003 and quickly became acknowledged as a quality venue, reaching number 52 in the Golf Digest rankings of the top 100 courses in 2005. In 2006, the course progressed into the ranks of the top 50. In 2007, we reached the top 30 and received GOLD status for our ‘golfing experience’.

In 2008 Goose Valley progressed from 21st to 18th best-conditioned course in the country.

This was confirmed when Goose Valley hosted the South African Amateur Championships.

Subsequently, the SAJGF Southern Cape, the Southern Cape Close, and numerous other prominent events have been held here.

Goose Valley is a venue of excellence, set in beautiful surroundings, in the heart of a golfing mecca, the Garden Route, with the ability to welcome the individual, the small group, or the company golf day.

Driving Range

Maintenance

Our Head Superintendent, Wesley Pain, along with his team are always hard at work maintaining and improving the golf course.

We are very lucky with the sandy soil on the course which allows us to work with machinery all year round due to the speedy drainage. We own a stock of the best golf course equipment available to prepare and maintain the course at all times. After completion of major course improvements last year the team are now concentrating on cosmetically enhancing the golf course.

Should any work be in progress on the course, such as the hollowtining of the greens, players will be informed when booking and a special rate will be offered.

Our fleet of 40 Club Car golf carts are in pristine condition and are expertly maintained by Ashwell and Bruce with his team of mechanics down at our maintenance shed.
