A mature, established course, Boschenmeer Golf Estate and the Paarl Golf Club offers golfers a mixture of parkland and target style golf. Visitors on South Africa golfing holidays are assured of a friendly welcome at this picturesque club in the Winelands.
Re-designed by David Frost, Paarl features an extra 9 holes bringing the total to 27. Although a parklands style course, it is most noted for its magnificent old trees and picturesque water holes in breathtaking mountain surroundings.
The first hole is a gentle par 4 to start your round off with. There is a water hazard in play short right but the open fairway should give you plenty to aim for.
Water hazards feature on six of the first 18 holes but it is the strategic bunkering that should be upper most in your course management strategy. Some of larger greens include testing undulations that require accuracy with your approach shots, for you to stand a chance of a straight putt in.
The 12th hole is best described as a ‘monster’ and local advice is take the longest club that you have in your bag until you can see the white of the cup!
The course is often over looked by overseas golfers on South Africa golf holidays in favour of its near neighbour, Pearl Valley, but we think Paarl offers an excellent and enjoyable golfing challenge, and is significantly cheaper than other courses in the area. It should be considered by anyone on a budget golf holiday in South Africa or looking to mix up different styles of courses.
A round of golf at Paarl Golf Club is included in our popular Cape Town and Winelands Golfing Holiday Itinerary or can be included in a tailor made golf holiday in South Africa.
