Devonvale Golf Course is a challenging 18-hole championship course with spectacular views that stretch all the way to Cape Town. The course is surrounded by the peace and tranquility of the Cape Winelands.
The original layout, designed by Ken Elkin, who designed many of the Capes better known courses, has seen several improvements of late. The introduction of indigenous plants and the removal of alien trees have not only beautified the environment, but have created panoramic vistas of the surrounding vineyards and mountains. Playing here early “before the field” must rate as the most peaceful golfing experience possible, which residents will have on their doorsteps.
The kikuyu fairways and bent greens are manicured with the utmost care to ensure a pleasant and true golfing experience. Standing on the first tee, one immediately senses the natural beauty of the winelands, one of the main reasons the course is enjoyed by members and visitors time after time.
Devonvale is fortunate enough to have a large dam in the centre of the course, which feeds the irrigation system, and therefore the golf course doesn’t make use of municipal water and water restriction are self inflicted.
