Having previously played on a quiet beautiful day and thoroughly enjoyed, the two rounds this year were disappointing! On the first day, the mist/fog resulted in zero visibility - could not see the green on a par 3!! The second round was disrupted by a thunder storm and seeing fork lightening hit the ocean was quite a frightening experience. The course, all be it in great condition, is extremely hilly resulting in many up hill/down hill lies whilst the rough is allowed to grow to about 150 mm making finding your ball difficult and impossible to play! A must play course once - simply for the spectacular views!
Draped along the stunning cliffs of Mossel Bay on South Africa’s southern coastline; Pinnacle Point was voted one of the 10 “Best New Courses of 2006” by Travel and Leisure magazine and offers one of the world’s most exhilarating golf experiences.
Co-designed by Peter Matkovich and Darren Clarke, this stunning course is an essential part of any Garden Route golf holiday, and can be combined with accommodation and golf at the luxurious Fancourt Estate in George which lies less than an hour’s drive to the East, as well as Oubaai Golf Estate, home to a superb Ernie Els designed championship course.
Commenting on Pinnacle Point, Darren Clarke said: “It won't matter how badly anybody is playing, golf here is not a good walk spoiled. It is simply one of the most stunning places I have ever seen and I don't think I was over the top when I described it as heaven on my first visit.”
A round of golf at Pinnacle Point is a memorable experience, and it can form part of a truly unforgettable golf holiday, with Cape Town and all of its treasures including the likes of Table Mountain and Robben Island less than an hour’s flight to the West.
