Golfing in Plettenberg Bay

Text and Pictures by Kate Maclean

Plettenberg Bay is home to two beautiful golf courses – but the golfing experience doesn’t stop there.

Combined with spectacular views and an abundance of animal and plant life, Plett will leave all golfers feeling rejuvenated and satisfied – no matter the score!

Goose Valley Golf Estate

Goose Valley Golf Course is situated 4km from Plettenberg Bay. Bordering on the Keurbooms Lagoon, this 18 hole Gary Player designed golf course incorporates the fundamental aspects of the Garden Route: pure natural beauty. The Keurbooms Lagoon, Indian Ocean, Tsitsikamma Mountains and famous Robberg Peninsula can be seen from a number of tee-boxes, adding to the individuality of this golf course.

Golf isn’t just a sport; it’s a game.

The Goose Valley Clubhouse offers a variety of light meals and refreshing drinks to be enjoyed whilst watching fellow golfers make their way down the 18th hole.

A driving range is also available for those who prefer to practice their game before tackling the course. With state-of-the-art chipping, putting and bunker practice facilities, improvement and enjoyment go hand-in-hand.

Plettenberg Bay Country Club is located in the Piesang Valley and is the other pristine 18 hole golf course that Plett has to offer. This challenging course layout is built to USGA specifications, making it suitable to even the most experienced players. The layout combined with indigenous flora and an abundance of wild life has earned this course to be rated as one of the top 50 in South Africa.

Numerous bushbuck, small antelope, vervet monkeys and baboons can often be seen roaming the fairways, adding a new dimension to the golfing experience. The club is also home to the Knysna Loerie, woodpeckers and many other birds, making it a popular place for local bird watchers.

As many golfers know, the best hole by far is always the “Nineteenth”. Plett Country Club offers an array of light meals, snacks and beverages which are much needed after a round – or two – of golf. Sit back and enjoy the amazing view from the deck whilst sipping on your favourite drink.



For those who wish to take their game to the next level, Roodefontein Driving Range is the ideal place to make this a reality. With no mats, this driving range offers the perfect, natural way to get the feeling of the game. The spectacular view of the Roodefontein Dam and the Plett Country Club, allows even the most frustrated golfers to feel relaxed and rejuvenated – even if the golf isn’t up to scratch! A chipping and putting green helps ensure that all aspects of golf can be practiced and made perfect.

No matter your handicap, style of golf swing or temperament, Plettenberg Bay is able to suit all golfers’ personalities. So come treat yourself to a memorable golfing experience where Birdies, Eagles and Albatrosses await you – and we’re not just talking about the wildlife!
