Robertson Golf Course, Robertson
Robertson Golf Course, 26 Silwerstrand Boulevard, Silwestrand Golf and River Estate, Robertson, Western Cape, South Africa / Surrounded by the rolling Langeberg mountains in the Breede River Valley and bordered by vineyards and orchards, the 18-hole Robertson golf course on the Silwerstrand Golf and River Estate is the only 18-hole golf course in the beautiful 'Valley of Wine and Roses'. Described as a fun, leisurely course it is extremely golfer friendly, with comfortable walks from tee to green. It has a great mix of long and short holes, with course designer Danie Obermeyer's signature "rivet faced" bunkers providing punishment for the wayward shot.
The tenth (a par 4) and 12th (par 5) are the toughest holes, especially in the North Wester, whilst the 18th (a par 5) is a great finishing hole. A unique feature of the course is the cart path on the 18th hole which crosses an old aquaduct that used to accommodate the irrigation water for the farms all the way down to Swellendam.
The course is presided over by a superb new club house with a spacious upstairs bar, restaurant and wrap-around veranda with breathtaking views of the mountains. The Pro-shop is run by Langley Perrins of Cutter and Buck fame, and the generous ladies and men’s changing rooms downstairs ensure that the golfers want for nothing.
