Somerset West, South Africa
Erinvale is widely considered to be one of the finest golf residential estates in South Africa, with the development process starting in 1990 and completed five years later in 1995. The golf course was designed by Gary Player who said: “When I first laid eyes on Erinvale, I was struck by the incredible beauty of the farm and the potential for a golf course of world-class standards!”
One of the jewels of Cape Winelands golf, Erinvale Golf Club is without doubt one of the best golf courses in South Africa. Surrounded by the majestic Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountains, Erinvale offers two very distinctly different loops of nine holes, with the front nine on the lower part of the estate winding its way through narrow fairways flanked by exquisite properties, blended perfectly with the landscape and environment. The second nine flows beautifully into the foot of the Helderberg’s and eventually offers the most rewarding and magnificent sweeping views over False Bay, surrounding vineyards, olive groves and the Helderberg Nature Reserve.
Erinvale combines the best of all: The benefit of excellent security in a gated community; the tranquillity of the surrounding nature; a world-class golf course on your doorstep and the various amenities of the Estate and other local facilities that translate into a five-star lifestyle. At Erinvale, Gary Player has created a true Championship Course which tests the best golfers in the world but also provides great enjoyment to amateur golfers of all skill levels.
