The golf course

The 18 hole links-style

Famed for having a view of the Indian Ocean from every tee, this 18-hole links-style course, with its large undulating greens, makes for an idyllic yet challenging round of golf. The golf club was founded in 1905 and the golf course relocated to its present position in 1924. A round of golf at Mossel Bay Golf Club is the perfect start to a golfing trip along the coastal areas of the Garden Route.

On Course

The course is an easy walk and very playable from tee to green for all golfers, even if you have just taken up the game. The beautiful views of the Indian Ocean or the Springbuck roaming on the course might distract you, but they will most definitely leave you with lasting memories. The Mossel Bay golf course signature hole is the 17th hole, which is a par 5. At 494m and stroke 2, this can be challenging especially when playing into the sea breeze. The tee is situated high above the fairway with magnificent vistas over the estate, and the hole runs downhill towards the green with the Indian Ocean as your backdrop. Well-placed bunkers on the side of the fairway will catch any errand tee shots.
The green is a large, three level, undulating green, which makes a par 5 on the hole uncertain, should you find the green with your approach shot.

Suitable golf attire is required for the golf course and clubhouse. Only golf shoes with soft spikes (no golf sandals) are allowed on the course.


Pro shop, driving range, golf lessons, guest houses, self-catering suites, restaurant, bars, carts and caddies.
