Welcome to Arabella Golf Club! We are extremely proud of the course that has been sensitively moulded and created amongst the indigenous fynbos and other endemic plant species by renowned course-designer Peter Matkovich. As a golfing experience there are few to match the beauty and tranquillity of Arabella’s sweeping fairways and magnificent views across the Kogelberg mountain range and Botriver lagoon. Our area boasts 147 species of bird including Fish Eagles and Flamingos.
While challenging even the most capable players, the course remains extremely playable for holiday and beginner golfers, ensuring that playing here once will never be enough! Since opening in December 1999, the course has received rave reviews from a wide cross-section of media, professional golfers and aficionados of the game. Arabella was rated as the 4th best course in South Africa for by Golf Digest, and also features in the Top 100 courses outside of America.
As the home of the Nelson Mandela Invitational charity Pro-Am, Arabella hosted some of the biggest names in world golf, including tournament host Grand Slam winner Gary Player, the greatest golfer of all time Jack Nicklaus, major winners Ernie Els, Retief Goosen and Bob Charles and others such as Lee Westwood, Sam Torrance, and Tim Clark, who have all praised the layout, situation and all-round conditioning of the course.
