Arabella Golf Club (Kleinmond)


Voted among the top 5 golf courses in South Africa and the top golf course in the Western Cape by both Golf Digest and the Compleat Golfer Magazines, and home to the Nelson Mandela Invitational. Arabella stretches through rolling fairways, deceptive bunkers and challenging water traps. A truly unique golf course set on the banks of the Bot River lagoon and fringed by indigenous fynbos.


Designed and built in 1999 by celebrated South African golf course architect Peter Matkovich, this course has spectacular views across the Bot River lagoon and across the Kogelberg mountain range.The pristine fairways are kikuyu, while the greens, which frequently receive high praise from professionals in the game, are Dominant Bent.

The golf course has been refined in the past six years with the addition of several bunkers and the revamp of the par-four 6th hole in order to rid it of its original blind tee shot.

Signature Hole: The tough par-3 seventeenth, alongside the largest natural lagoon in South Africa, requires a precise tee shot. Miss the green right and you could be in the lagoon.
