The Itinerary

Upon arrival into Cape Town after your overnight flight you will be met by one of our representatives and transferred by minibus to your accommodation for the duration of your stay, Floreal House.

Over the next few days you will be able to play golf every day at the Royal Cape Golf Course (the oldest in the country), scenic Clovelly Golf Course, Milnerton Golf Course (which borders the Atlantic Ocean) and lovely Stellenbosch Golf Course in the Winelands. Apart from golf we are able to organise a number of excursions around the Cape area, such as visiting historic Robben Island, Cape Point, V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain, historical buildings and museums in the city, going wine-tasting, shark-cage diving or whale-watching.

In the evenings dinner can be enjoyed in the hotel restaurant, or guests can enjoy dinner in the city, where there are numerous world-class restaurants.

Info: Floreal House & Cape Town

Floreal House is a pretty guesthouse in the heart of the city bowl below iconic Table Mountain. With only 9 tastefully-decorated, comfortable rooms, a large shared swimming pool and exceptional service, Floreal House is ideal for a tour group, providing peace and quiet and privacy.

Cape Town is a bustling metropolitan centre with a fascinating history, a beautiful setting and people who can’t do enough to help. Must-see attractions include taking the cable-car up Table Mountain, from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the city, and visiting Robben Island, where Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in jail. The Cape Point hinterland has some stunning scenery and views of the Atlantic coast, making it an excellent afternoon excursion. Nearby Stellenbosch, famed for its renowned vineyards, and Hermanus, famed for its marine-life, including great whites and whales, are both excellent places to visit.

Info: The Golf Clubs

The Royal Cape Golf Course is the oldest course in South Africa and is surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.

Clovelly Golf Course has excellent views over the Indian Ocean and is extremely aesthetically pleasing. Bobby’s Bar in the clubhouse, named after the Great Bobby Locke and located at the end of the course, offers a welcome and refreshing place to relax after completing the course.

Milnerton’s straight course can be extremely windy, making golf challenging and quite exciting. Its setting between the Atlantic Ocean on one side and a lagoon on the other means that you are surrounded by natural beauty whilst playing.

Stellenbosch has a parkland layout with large trees framing most holes. The course is not affected by the wind as much as the other courses played and is therefore much less frustrating to play, allowing you to play a more leisurely round of golf before finishing off the tour.
