Mossel Bay Golf Course

 One of the must-play courses on the Garden Route, Mossel Bay is famous for stunning views of the Indian Ocean from every tee as well as the marvellous bird and animal life such as the springbok that sometimes roam into play, leaving you spellbound.

Designed originally by Bob Grimsdell, the course layout was redesigned by Danie Obermeyer in 1999/2000 and entered the new millennium complimented by rave reviews. 

The large undulating greens ensure an idyllic yet challenging round of golf, being built over a gentle landscape that provides ease of walking. The signature hole is the 17th hole, which is a par 5. At 494m and stroke 2, this can be daunting especially when playing into the sea breeze.
