Although one of the less glamorous clubs in the Cape, Rondebosch is always in good condition and the greens are some of the best in the Cape. With two rivers running through it the water comes into play on at least three holes. There is...More

Don't expect too much , but o.k. for playing once if you are in Cape Town area. For the same price you can play on much better courses. ( Clovelly ,Paarl , Milnerton )

The only thing wrong is that we found it difficult to find the entrance to the course! It was in excellent condition with lightning-fast greens.

A nice course without ever being outstanding in anyway. It's in good condition and is not the cheapest around but there are plenty of trees and it's a good walk around the property.

Huge fan of Rondebosch Golf Club. It has great value for how well kept the course it and also has great views of the surrounding mountains.

Nothing was too much trouble. The caddie was excellent and the Starter Ian,was most helpful and obliging. The Course was not overpriced and an easy walk. The condition was excellent too.

The staff are very friendly and in summer there is a special price of R120 if you tee off after 4pm. You can then try and fit in as many holes while the sun is shining. Greens in great condition. No water shortage in this...More
