On the southern coast of the African continent 120km to the west of Cape Town lies a quaint seaside fishing village that is home to the whales who annually return to its waters when calving and the equally impressive Hermanus Golf Course. South Africa’s premiere course architect, Peter Matkovich recently had the chance to play an important role in upgrading the clubs existing 18 holes to an impressive 27 holes and he grabbed it with both hands.
The Estate specialises in producing highly individual, terroir driven Pinot noir and Chardonnay, which are widely regarded as the best in South Africa and among the finest in the New World.
The walk to the 27th tee takes one through an ecological area that is a riot of colour at certain times of the year. Look out for sunbirds. Definite risk and reward Par 5 with a generously wide Fairway to the advantage of the long hitter. The lateral hazards left and right and the divided Fairway make calculated tactical decisions necessary. The two-tier, well bunkered Green makes a great finish to a splendid golf hole.
