Although having been built in 1929 according to local golf course architect Elkinís design, the course was moved and rebuilt in 1976 to be amidst the tough, scrubby terrain of the Western Cape. Over time, it has been refined and now boasts beautifully manicured fairways and greens that are a delight to play.
The Parow Golf Course is characterised by gentle slopes and is ringed with bunkers. There are several water features along the way, which attract a variety of bird species that are always fabulous to spot. These include plovers, peacocks, grouse, guinea fowl, Egyptian geese, mallards, storks and even pelicans. The course is accessible for those staying in or visiting the Mother City, and visitors are welcome to join members every day except Wednesday and Saturday.
There is an in-house pro shop at the Parow Golf Club, at which folks can stock up on gear and see what is new on the golfing scene. For your added convenience, carts and clubs are available for hire.
