Golfing at De Zalze Golf Club

Designed by Peter Matkovich

The De Zalze Golf Course was designed by Peter Matkovich, a renowned golf course architect known for his ability to create courses that blend seamlessly with their natural surroundings. Matkovich’s design at De Zalze emphasizes strategic play, beautiful landscaping, and harmony with the surrounding vineyards and mountains.

De Zalze Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course situated in the heart of the Stellenbosch wine region. The course offers a mix of parkland and woodland holes, with fairways that meander through vineyards, olive groves, and alongside the Blaauwklippen River. Golfers can expect a well-maintained course with lush fairways, smooth greens, and a variety of water features and bunkers that provide both beauty and challenge. The layout is designed to cater to golfers of all skill levels, with wide fairways on some holes and tighter, more strategic challenges on others.

Signature Holes

Hole 3 – Par 3: This hole is celebrated for its stunning aesthetics and challenging play. Golfers must navigate a water hazard that guards the front of the green, demanding precision and confidence to avoid the water and land on the green.

Hole 13 – Par 5: Known for its length and strategic design, this par 5 features a double dogleg with water hazards and bunkers that come into play on both the tee shot and the approach. The green is well-protected, requiring a well-thought-out strategy to score well.

Hole 18 – Par 4: The finishing hole offers a dramatic end to the round, playing towards the clubhouse with the majestic Stellenbosch Mountains as a backdrop. The fairway is flanked by vineyards, and water hazards guard the approach to the green, making accuracy paramount.

De Zalze Golf Club hosts several prestigious tournaments throughout the year, attracting golfers from across the region and beyond. Membership at the club offers exclusive benefits, including priority tee times, access to members-only events, and opportunities to engage with the golfing community.
