Southbroom golf course is a pleasure to play. It is a fairly short course where varying coastal conditions contribute to the exciting challenge. Derek James, Resident PGA Professional and Golf Director, takes you through it hole by hole.
This is one of the most talked about holes in Southern Africa. Whilst on the tee, take an extra second or two to absorb the magnificent view. The tee is perched above the Indian Ocean and sightings of whale and dolphin are common in winter. Whilst a short Par 3, it is difficult into a south-east wind and the green is deceptively long.
A spectacular hole played from elevated tees over water to a green that has a bunker right and water left and in front. There are superb views over the course and the ocean from all the tees. With 3 mens tees, 3 ladies tees, and changing winds, its a new hole every day!
A narrow Par 5 between trees and bunkers that plays either directly into, or with the wind, with ‘trouble’ left and right. This is a straightforward, really good hole where the well-guarded green hides subtle slopes.
