Golfing at Royal Cape Golf Club

Designed by Dr. Charles Molteno Murray

The Royal Cape Golf Club, the oldest golf club in South Africa, was initially designed by Dr. Charles Molteno Murray in 1885. Over the years, the course has undergone various redesigns and enhancements, notably by Charles Alison in the 1920s, to maintain its high standards and adapt to modern golfing needs.

Royal Cape Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course situated in Cape Town, offering stunning views of Table Mountain. The course features well-manicured kikuyu fairways, bentgrass greens, and a variety of water features and strategically placed bunkers. Golfers can expect a classic parkland layout that is both challenging and rewarding, with narrow fairways, subtle doglegs, and well-protected greens that demand precision and strategic play.
