Cape Golf vacation - Cape Town, Winelands and the Garden Route

A 7 day golf vacation starting in Cape Town and heading up the Garden Route.

This is a true Cape golf vacation, combining great golf with some local sightseeing and activities.

Day 1

We start off by playing Steenberg. Set under the Constantiaberg mountains, and on the oldest wine estate in the Cape, Steenberg is a residential golf estate bordering the southern suburbs of Cape Town.

After your round of golf, there should be time to enjoy some of the wines of the Constantia valley. Steenberg is an award winning wine estate and this is a great opportunity to taste some of the whites for which they are particularly well known. The historic Groot Constantia wine estate is also close by and well worth a visit for its wines and the great old “Cape Dutch” architecture. Other estates include Klein Constantia, Buitenverwchting, and Constantia Uitsig - they are all great, and all deserve a visit, however this is a case of too much to see and not enough time. A good way to end your Cape Golf Vacation day.
