De Zalze Golf Course situated within the De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate was designed by Peter Matkovich (course architect for both Leopard Rock and Arabella) who has made the most of the stunning setting and created a course that places a premium on accuracy. The golf course is beautifully laid out amid the vines, around the square are beautiful to look at white houses of the resort and the De Zalze Lodge. The tracks are playing varied and beautiful. Often, water comes into play. A system where you can spend a fun-filled vacation. Beautiful, interesting course with some very exciting holes. In high season, however slow for South African conditions match tempo.
De Zalze Golf Course
The course has an interesting and varied layout and the back nine must be considered one of the best in the country. Not always an easy course but very fair. It includes the signature 13th which is a short par 4 along the side of the beautiful lake. The bold golfer can drive the green but the clever golfer plays for the fairways with a long iron and takes a par. This is followed by the breathtaking par 5, 14th which is an elevated drive to a choice of two fairways split in the middle by a huge fairway bunker. Its a hole that for once you don't want to hit a perfectly straight drive. The 18th is another treat and if you get to play it from the top tee's you'll never forget it. Teeing off way above the clubhouse a golfer can once again choose to drive the green and risk the stream in front of it or play safe down the fairway and hope for an accurate approach.
