Milnerton Golf Course

Club taken to court to change a par 4 to a par 5


The Milnerton Golf Course is about 8 kilometres away from the Cape Town's city centre. From Cape Town city you travel north on the N1, which you soon leave in the direction of "Paarden Eiland / Milnerton". On reaching Milnerton turn left and cross the small lagoon on a bridge. Milnerton Golf Course's entrance lies on your right, opposite the Milnerton lighthouse.

The Course…

Milnerton Golf Course is an 18-hole, par 72 seaside course situated just 10 minutes north of the city of Cape Town. Surrounded by natural beauty, the course is a pleasure to the senses and a challenge to even the most experienced golfer - especially when the prevailing South Easter, affectionately known as the "Cape Doctor" - makes her house calls in the summer months!
Nestled between the Atlantic ocean and the Rietvlei river, this lush links-type course is relatively flat with few trees. But with the sea and the lagoon bordering most holes, and the 7 beautiful water holes waiting to claim the wayward shot, Milnerton Golf Course offers a truly unique golfing experience! Typical of many links-type courses, you will play the first 9 holes out, enjoy a light meal at the halfway house, and then return back to the clubhouse via the second 9.

The "Cape Doctor"

Milnerton Golf Course is flat and has no trees (read no protection from the wind). The course is in one of the windiest parts of Cape Town, and from December to March the Southeaster often blows here with gale force right through the unprotected Milnerton Golf Course.

The Attraction…

On most holes, the sound of the waves breaking on the shore just metres away will remain long after your game is over. The view of Table Mountain is breathtaking, while the nature lovers will be thrilled at the abundance of water birds on the bordering river.

The Reward…

Once over, the day's experience will not be complete without a well-deserved drink or two in Milnerton Golf Course's 5-star lounge situated just a few paces off the beach. There you will relax in comfort and reflect on your game while soaking in the splendor of the view over the ocean toward the Mother City - with Table Mountain completing a perfect post-card setting.
