Bellville Golf Course, Bellville
Bellville Golf Course is situated in the magnificent Welgemoed Valley, this beautiful course is hardly affected by local prevailing winds. The course is fairly challenging with a few water hazards and well-placed bunkers. Always green and lush, never dry. This is a beautiful course definitely worth a visit. Centrally situated in the Peninsula, within easy reach from all major access routes, this course is a must for all golfers. The 18 hole golf course, situated in the affluent suburb of Welgemoed, is set in a sheltered valley of rolling hills with panoramic views of the Hottentots Holland mountains in the distance.
The 72 Par, 6000 meter course, offers the golfer the ideal opportunity of a challenging round of golf. When upgrading the course approximately three years ago, the course architects made every effort to incorporate the natural contours and features of the course. This resulted in a course that caters for golfers of all levels of expertise.
The course is well bunkered, well watered and has 5 water holes. The greens are American Creeping Bent and the lush Kikuyu fairways allow good lies. The practice putting and chipping greens are situated near the Clubhouse. The dams and water canals are abound with birds and wild fowl. The manicured fairways and greens are lined with a variety of trees and specially created floral features, which all add to the tranquil and pleasing setting.
The attractive par-3 12th requires a testing tee shot played across a large dam to a well-bunkered green.
The modern clubhouse is in a prime location, with panoramic views of the course and mountains in the distance. A secured parking area is located just in front. The club has a privately managed restaurant called "Fairways" which serves up the best food in town (ideal after that good round).
