An oasis of calm and comfort alongside the active nightlife and vibrant restaurants of the Waterfront, The PortsWood Hotel's success has been due to its superb service and excellent location. The hotel is seen as an important part of Cape Town's history, as the restaurant and lobby are built around the original well and holding cells for prisoners en route to Robben Island 300 years ago. Today it offers comfortable accommodation, exclusive amenities and convenient facilities, including a swimming pool, restaurant, bar and business center.
Simola
Simola
Knysna, Garden Route
The Simola Golf Estate on the hills above picturesque Knysna is a breathtaking experience that combines achingly beautiful views of the enchanting forests, town, lagoon and Indian Ocean that lay out before it. The Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, which was officially opened by the ‘Golden Bear’ himself in September 2005, is only one of 5 Nicklaus signature courses in South Africa, and definitely the most scenic.

The course offers challenging and satisfying golf along with some exceptionally spectacular scenery. Every hole boasts exceptional views. The high ridges keep away the wind that often plays spoilsport on coastal courses. The immaculate Kikuyu Fairways flow with the natural undulating contours of the terrain. The excellent Bent Grass, smaller than expected of a modern course, in typical Nicklaus fashion, are strategically designed to challenge the golfer to choose the right approach to them to maximise scoring chances. All in all, be prepared for a rewarding morning of play: both visually as well as in terms of the game.
Pezula
Pezula
Knysna, Garden Route
Designed by David Dale and Ronald Fream, the Pezula Championship Course is spectacularly situated atop the famous Knysna Heads, and this high vantage point allows for majestic panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, the Knysna lagoon and the Outeniqua Mountain Range. Knysna, a Garden Route gem, is known for its enchanting beauty and the Pezula Championship Course is right at its epicentre.

The landscape remains scenic and unspoiled and the quality of the fairways and the greens adds to the pleasure of playing on this course which has moods as varied as the hilly and rugged terrain it stands on. There are three signature holes, the 13th through 15th and they are all on the cliff that overlooks the Indian Ocean. The 5 different tee options cater to all golfing levels and the course, that is difficult to navigate on foot, provides golf carts. The downhill holes, matched with classic sweeping fairways winding through forested areas, make for an unforgettable round of golf.
Pinnacle Point
Pinnacle Point
Mossel Bay, Garden Route
The Pinnacle Point Golf Course, co-designed by renowned golf architect Peter Matkovich and professional golfer Darren Clarke, stretches along four kilometres of spectacular coastline and boasts dramatic cliff-side holes as well as a virgin beachfront. Awe inspiring views are a given with the stunning ocean visible from every hole.

The emerald green fairways and tees offer a perfect surface for making shots and the bent grass greens will ensure a challenging and entertaining game.  The seven holes perched precariously along the cliff edge not only intimidate but also seduce the golfer with both their challenges and their beauty, and are justifiably some of the world’s most photographed holes.
Pearl Valley
Pearl Valley
Franschhoek, Winelands
The Pearl Valley Golf Estate is enchantingly beautiful. Located between the magnificent Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountain Ranges, it shares its borders with two of the most well-known and picturesque winemaking towns in the Cape - Paarl and Franschhoek.  The estate as well as the course is post-card perfect in every sense of the word. From the vineyards and orchards that border the course to the mighty Berg River flowing through it to the mountainous backdrops of every hole, playing here is an experience that cannot be adequately described in words.

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus has used his abundant store of knowledge and experience in the game to develop the most visually spectacular golf course in the country. The design of the Pearl Valley Golf Course has received praises galore for its magnificent rich, deep, green all-season fairways and the clever use of dazzling water features, which often protect the splendid large and subtle bent grass greens. The bunkers, in true Nicklaus fashion, are shallow, long and relatively undaunting. Traversed by roads in only three places, with a state-of-the-art drainage system in place that allows play to continue just minutes after a severe downpour, the course is truly in a league of its own.
