Upon returning to the mainland, you’ll continue on to The Company Gardens, the oldest garden in South Africa, created in the 1650s by the region’s first European settlers to replenish fresh produce for ships rounding the Cape.
Today, the gardens offer a tranquil oasis of diverse plant life in the midst of the bustle of the city. Continue on to the BoKaap, an iconic neighborhood situated at the foot of Signal Hill and renowned for it’s brightly painted houses and steep cobblestone roads. Formerly known as the Malay Quarter, the Bo-Kaap’s origins date back to the 1760s when numerous “huurhuisjes” were built and leased to slaves known as Cape Malays, brought from Malaysia, Indonesia and the rest of Africa to work in the Cape.
The neighborhood has a rich and distinct micro-culture that celebrates the vitality of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Complete your tour with a cableway trip to the top of Table Mountain, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and the ideal site from which to view Table Bay in the panorama.

After breakfast, you will be collected at the hotel and transferred to Westlake for your round of golf at The Royal Cape Golf Club.

Emanating a rich history and tradition, South Africa’s oldest golf club offers beautiful setting views of Table Mountain from most holes that will make your visit truly memorable.
The narrow fairways demand extreme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots can be heavily penalised amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered. There is also plenty of water on the course, especially at the corner of the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and also the 14th, 15th, and 16th.
The most difficult holes are the par-4 3rd and the par-4 14th. The second nine offers quite a challenge for the average golfer: two challenging par 3s and a very magnificent par 4!
The locals do not call it their own ‘Amen’ corner for nothing! Return to the hotel and spend the afternoon and evening at leisure.
✅ Breakfast ✅ Golf ✅ Transfers
After breakfast, you will be collected at the hotel and transferred to Melkbosstrand for your round of golf on the Atlantic Beach Links.
The Atlantic Beach Links, lying a mere 700 metres off the stunning Atlantic Ocean, is a unique 18-hole links layout that provides keen golfers with exciting challenges, thanks partly to the strong winds that are often in attendance.
However, the course has been designed in such a way that few holes run in the same direction, thereby allowing golfers a regular respite from the wind challenges. With panoramic views of the historic Robben Island and the iconic Table Mountain, a round of golf on this course serves you with delightful sights of the Mother City at its finest.
It is indeed a golf course blessed with natural contours that sweep upwards and downwards among the dune-lined valleys. The course is set out in two nine-hole loops that each return to the clubhouse. Each hole comes with a challenge of its own as the course winds its way through rolling dunes, surrounded by spectacular expanses of indigenous Fynbos and impeccably maintained fairways and greens. Return to the hotel and spend the afternoon and evening at leisure.
✅ Breakfast ✅ Golf ✅ Transfers

Wooden walkways allow visitors to view penguins in their natural habitat. From Boulders Beach you will move on to a brief walking tour of Kalk Bay, a picturesque town built on the oceanfront and renowned for its boutique shops and art galleries.
Complete your tour at The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.

✅ Breakfast ✅ Tour ✅ Transfers
After breakfast, you will be collected at the hotel and transferred to Westlake Golf Course for your round of golf.
Set in the leafy Cape Town suburb of Lake Side, with its back enclosed in the walls of the Silvermine Mountains, Westlake Golf Course has gained an illustrious reputation as one of the Cape’s premier courses.
The natural beauty and wildlife that the surrounding mountains have added bring forth an element that most city suburb golf courses can only dream of. Towering flat pine trees which line many of the fairways are a highlight as well as a characteristic feature of the course.
To achieve a good score, you have to stay out of the trees. Westlake has an interesting but user-friendly design and quite a few doglegs. From the first to the eighteenth hole, every step affords panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
The par 4, 12th, Westlake’s signature hole deserves a special mention with tall pines flanking the right-hand side of the fairway and offering a challenge to most golfers. Return to the hotel and spend the afternoon and evening at leisure.

With play being restricted to hotel residents, members, and their guests, the course rarely seems crowded and you can enjoy a peaceful and comfortable round of golf at your pace. Although set in the same surroundings as its better-known counterparts, the Outeniqua has developed an individual personality rivaling the others.
As with all courses at Fancourt, there are a variety of tees from which to choose to play, ensuring that golfers are unlikely to ever feel overpowered by the course. Excellent water features and creeks interspersed with uphill and downhill challenges and excellent bunkering (recently renovated) are all augmented in the charm and challenge by the colourful flora to be seen throughout the course. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.
✅ Breakfast ✅ Golf ✅ Transfers
After breakfast, make your way to the Fancourt Montagu Golf Course for your round.
Voted the number one golf course in South Africa in 2000, the Montagu Golf Course at Fancourt is named after the mountain pass of the same name and is part of the original 27-hole design at Fancourt by the legendary Gary Player in the early 90s.
This classic tree-lined parkland layout underwent a major facelift in 2005 under renowned Scottish golf architect David McLay Kidd. The upgrade saw two completely new holes – the 1st and the 9th, redefined bunkers and greens and the introduction of several water features such as the dam.
Celebrated for its immaculate, round-the-year conditioning, the Montagu GC is currently ranked n the top 10 of South Africa. The signature hole is the Par-3 17th, reminiscent of the 12th hole at Augusta National – the permanent home of the US Masters. Enjoy a 3-course farewell dinner at Henry White’s restaurant at Fancourt Hotel.
✅ Breakfast ✅ Golf ✅ Transfers
After breakfast, make your way to The Links Course at Fancourt for your round of golf. An inland-links style challenge to test the best in the world is how the Fancourt Links was visualised at its conception.
Designed by the legendary Gary Player and considered to be his design masterpiece, the Links at Fancourt recreates the classic courses of Scotland and Ireland in a typically South African setting with the majestic Outeniqua mountains serving as a dramatic backdrop.
Conceived on a former airport site, the resulting aura is that of a pure links layout in spite of its inland location, with only the climate and the mountains serving as reminders that the golfer is not in the British Isles.
Having hosted the 2003 Presidents Cup (which ended in a dramatic tie between Tiger Woods and Ernie Els with Nelson Mandela in attendance) and the 2005 SAA Open, playing at The Links is a very, very special experience. Enjoy a 3-course farewell dinner at Henry White’s restaurant at Fancourt Hotel.

With lovely views of Table Mountain from most holes this championship course offers a beautiful setting that will make your visit here truly memorable. Royal Cape Golf Club is a true championship course having hosted the South African Open no less than ten times and the SA Amateur Championships eight times.
Extensive work was done on the greens in 2000 to bring them up to the USGA standards and the course today is a fine test of golf and worthy of its championship rating.
Essentially it is a very flat parkland course, well maintained and a pleasure to play with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. But don’t be deceived by its apparent easiness. The fairways are narrow, demanding extreme accuracy off the tee, wayward shots can be heavily penalised amongst the trees and the greens are well bunkered.
Enjoy our Championship Links style Golf Course with its traditional style and an ocean breeze off the ocean. On calm days you can play your normal lofted shot or on windy days you can use the firm turf to play low running shots, beneath the wind.
Either way, we are sure you will enjoy the challenge around this 18-hole golf course. Atlantic Beach Links Golf Courses have been built with a serious commitment to the preservation of the indigenous fauna and flora.
Compared to other golf courses in Cape Town, on completion of your 18 holes around our course you will agree that it is the combination of good golf in unsurpassed natural surroundings that make Atlantic Beach’s Links Golf Course a unique golfing experience.
