Milnerton Golf Club is situated on the West Coast just 15 minutes drive west of central Cape Town. A regular host to PGA events including the South African Open, the course boasts picture postcard views of Table Mountain across the bay, from almost every hole. Out of Africa include Milnerton Golf Club in a number of their South Africa Golf Holidays, it offers excellent value for money, is easy to reach from central Cape Town, and is welcoming to overseas visitors.
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Riet Vlei River, this lush links-type course is relatively flat with few trees. With the sea and the lagoon bordering most of the fairways, and the seven beautiful water holes waiting to claim any wayward shots, it offers a truly unique golfing experience!
The flat rolling fairways look quite benign but the thick, heavy rough swallows golf balls whole, so you are best to play straight and keep the ball flight low, under the wind that comes off the sea. Typical of many traditional links courses, you will play the first 9 holes out, enjoy a light meal at the halfway house, and then return back to the clubhouse via the second 9.
The course is a challenge to even the most experienced golfer – especially when the prevailing south easterly wind, affectionately known as the “Cape Doctor” – makes her house calls in the summer months! This can make the last few holes, back into the wind, seem very long indeed.
Milnerton features in a number of our South Africa golf holidays. It is not classed in the highest category of platinum courses but this is also reflected in the green fees. It offers really enjoyable links golf at an affordable price.
The course is easy to reach from central Cape Town which is about a 15 minute drive. We recommend staying in the city at one of the guest houses or hotels in Cape Town. We offer a range of different properties to suit every budget from 3* guest houses to the very top 5* hotels. We include Milnerton as one of the courses on our affordable 8 night Cape Town Golf Itinerary.

ReviewsMilnerton can be blustery at the best of times but the views across Table Bay are magnificent. If you have got time, stop for a burger in Maestro's next door. AG
