Golf Course

The name 'De Zalze' originates from the early wine farmers who produced wines on the three adjoining farms, namely Kleine Zalze, Groote Zalze and De Vleie, in the region. The Golf Course opened for play in November 2000 under the name Spier Country Club. It was only in December 2002 with the opening of the new clubhouse that it changed to trade as De Zalze Golf Club, in line with the De Zalze Winelands Golf Estate development. Spier, together with Kleine Zalze, have redesigned the estate to make it one of the most sought after golf real estate properties in South Africa's beautiful Cape Winelands. Renowned golf course architect, Peter Matkovich, designed the course, making the most of the stunning setting while placing a premium on accuracy.

Our Personal Opinion

These Lodges are ideal for families or those looking to spend a longer time in the Stellenbosch area. There are so many great restaurants and wine farms to enjoy that we didn't make full use of the rooms as they are equipped with a stunning modern kitchen and dining facilities. The rooms overlook the golf course and would be great for someone who would like to start their day with a round of golf.

Golf

The 18-hole Golf Course is currently ranked 4th in the Western Cape and 23rd in the Country. The wooded banks of the Blaauwklippen River which runs along several of the fairways, adds to the visually pleasing landscape while at the same time providing unique golfing challenges. The course was substantially upgraded at the commencement of the development of the residential component of the estate. So, with its superbly manicured fairways and putting greens, it is not surprising that this Course was placed 13th in the list of 30 Best Conditioned courses. The club and course provide an excellent venue for all golf events having already hosted the World Team Amateur Championships in 2005.

These self-catering rooms are ideal for long stays as they offer all the amenities one would want to make you feel at home.

I think they would also be great for families, elderly or those that simply love golf. This is also the perfect place to simply get away from it all. Unlike your "standard" hotel rooms, at De Zalze you can relax in complete privacy and just do your own thing, when you want and how you want.

The accommodation really was comfortable and for us having the golf course right at our place was fantastic. We come to Cape Town every year to golf, and this was definatelly one of the top places for us.
