Tee-off on the Arabella Golf Course in Hermanus where this 72-par 18-hole course offers arguably one of the most beautiful golfing backdrops in the Western Cape. Edging the Bot River Lagoon and looking out onto the fynbos covered Kogelberg mountains, this is truly a course designed to be played as much as it is admired. The Peter Matkovich design is complemented by world-class amenities whether you want to practice your swing on the driving range, upgrade your clubs in the Pro Shop, make use of the GPS golf carts, team up with a trained caddy, or get lessons from the club’s resident pro. Consistently ranked as a top 10 course in the country by Golf Digest it’s little wonder that Arabella Golf Course has hosted world-famous celebrities and renowned pros. With a fabled 18th hole, a bucket-list 8th hole, tricky sand traps and challenging water hazards, the course has plenty to offer all skill levels.
