The De Zalze championship golf course, already rated No3 in the Western Cape, has recently hosted the SAA Open and World Amateur Championships.
De Zalze offers a fine mix of parkland holes, its main defences being the water features on several of the holes. The oak-lined Blaauwklippen River winds its way through the golf estate and comes into play at various intervals. Renowned golf course architect, Peter Matkovich, designed the De Zalze Golf Course, making most of the stunning setting while placing a premium on accuracy.
Since the opening in 2000, the club was quick to reap rewards. De Zalze was selected to host the 2006 World Amateur Team Championships, moved from 44th to 24th in the latest Golf Digest Top 100 Courses, was recently placed 13th in the Top 30 Best Conditioned courses and De Zalze also received a service-orientated “Five-Star Golf Experience” Award, managed by Compleat Golfer, joining only 14 other courses out of over 450 courses in South Africa to achieve this honour.
De Zalze is also the first golf course in the world to be recognised for adherence to Fair Trade principles and criteria and has been Fair Trade certified.
