Pearl Valley Golf Estates
Pearl Valley Golf Estates is a Jack Nicklaus-designed, 170-hectare championship golf course (par 72) lying in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Drakenstein Mountains, it is one of the most visually spectacular golf courses in the world – and one of the most challenging in Africa.
Officially opened in November 2003, Pearl Valley Golf Estates was named ‘Best Golf Course of the Year’ in 2005 and won a PMR Diamond Arrow Award in 2008, achieving the highest rating of any golf course in the Western Cape. In 2007, it announced a three-year deal to host the South African Open Championship, one of the oldest Opens in world golf. In 2009 Pearl Valley was also rated as the “best golf estate in South Africa”.
