The Pearl Valley Golf Club was opened in 2003 by two of the biggest names in golf, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. The golf course is one of very few signature golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and in 2005, it was named the best golf course of the year by worldwide magazine Golf Digest.

The course is no stranger to the big stage, having previously played host to the South African Open on three consecutive years from 2007 - 2009. If you fancy playing a previous European Tour host course, then Pearl Valley should definitely be on the list on your South Africa golf holiday.
