Golfers will be spoiled for choice as some of the best courses in South Africa are right on our doorstep. The highly acclaimed George Golf Club is just five minutes from our guesthouse, as is the newly-opened Kingswood club. Other fine golfing venues, including the spectacular Pinnacle Point, Oubaai and Mossel Bay are all within 30 minutes drive and the must play Pezula and Simola courses in Knysna are only an hour away.
