South Africa's oldest club, established in Cape Town in 1885, has a prestigious championship course that is always in good condition. It has slick greens which present a real challenge. It is a flat parkland layout and is an ideal introduction to golf in the Cape. It is in typical Cape Flats country and therefore exposed to the wind. On a benign day Royal Cape can be forgiving, but in a stiff breeze it can be an absorbing and often very difficult challenge, although the ferocity of the wind is tempered slightly by the many trees that line the fairways.

Location: The golf course is situated on the Cape Peninsula approximately 20 minutes from Cape Town City Centre.

Unique Selling Points:
- At the start of the Cape Peninsula
- Championship Course
- Designed by Dr Charles Murray in the 1920's
- Redesigned by Robert Grimsdell
- Scenic views of Table Mountain from every hole

Historic course

One of the first club established in SA. 1885 ! Old course but very young in fact, the staff is very nice. The second 9 is a bit noisy due to the highway proximity.
