Clovelly Country Club lies nestled in the pristine and tranquil Silvermine Valley close to Fish Hoek in Cape Town. This relatively short layout, built among sand dunes, rewards accuracy off the tee and provides players with scenic views of the valley. Clovelly is a beautiful layout, known for its superb greens, extremely friendly welcome and, being the most popular choice of visitors to the Cape, is a must-play course when visiting Cape Town.

Clovelly ranks as one of the finest courses in the Cape Peninsula. It was designed by Dr Charles Molteno Murray, one of the best known golf architects of his day and advocate Bobby Lewin was responsible for much of the magnificent landscaping. Together they produced one of Southern Africa's most picturesque and challenging courses.

Famous for its rolling, computer-irrigated fairways and undulating holes, Clovelly complements its rich coastal environment. Natural sand dunes abut the course, which is blessed with water features and a wide variety of indigenous fauna - especially birdlife such as guinea fowl, pheasant, peacock and steppe buzzard - and flora, notably the variety of trees which line the fairways.

Unlike some other local courses, there is no noise intrusion from roads or railways, and both course and club house enjoy privacy and security. Clovelly's championship-quality greens (bent grass/poa annua mix) are among the finest in Cape Town.

Signature Hole: There are quite a few tight holes, but one of the best is the par-4 fourth, with out-of-bounds and a stream on the left, and a green guarded by a water hazard.
