Golf At Katberg

Now ranked in the top 100 golf courses in South Africa by Golf Digest.

This relatively new estate and golf course is emerging as a must-visit destination. Nestled at the base of the Katberg Mountains, which makes up part of the Winterberg Mountain range.

The challenge on the 18-hole classic country style championship golf course is keeping your head down – surrounding views are spectacular. This magnificent site inspired golf data to design a course tuned to the natural lie of the land.

The 6300m par 72 course, with 4 par 3’s and 4 par 5’s, presents challenging but balanced golf. Under full satellite irrigation, kikuyu fairways and bent grass greens flow with the natural undulating contours of the land. Bunkering adds to the intricate strategy of each hole. The beauty of the course culminates at a waterfall between the 17th and 18th holes.

The Katberg manor golf club house offers facilities for the entire family, including a restaurant and bar, tennis courts, swimming pool and pro-shop.
