Golf at Selborne

Its beauty has been compared to that of Augusta, and the challenges that may be found here have been the downfall of many players during the Sunshine Tour. Designed by Denis Barker, one of the original proprietors of Selborne Golf Estate, Hotel and Spa, the challenge is from the first tee on wards, providing a real contest for golfers of every ability. Water is a prominent feature on the majority of the holes.

The driving range is superb, and sits alongside Africa’s biggest putting green with a resident pro on hand to offer advice and guidance. The tropical climate of the South Coast is perfect for year-round golfing experiences, and the area is also known as South Africa’s Golf Coast, with 11 of Golf Digest’s top-100 courses in the area.

Hole One
Par 5
402m 
A dogleg par 5 needing some thought! A 5 wood off the tee should make your second easier and put you in a safe position for a simple approach. Watch out for the bunker protecting the front right half of the green.

Hole Two
Par 4
265m
A short par 4 with water on the left and to the right to catch wayward shots. Play towards the right taking note of the bunkers in front of the green.

Hole Three
Par 5

479m
A great par 5! The 2nd shot requires laying up short of the water, making the 3rd a short approach to the green.

Hole Four

Par 4
134m
A short par 4 but dangerous if you get greedy. Watch out for the water as well as the avenue of trees all the way to the green. A bunker protects the left of the green.

Hole Five
Par 4

346m
A superb par 4 played from an elevated tee down to a valley fairway. Wind conditions will determine your club selection off the tee.

Hole Six
Par 3

153m
Play this lovely par 3 from alternate tees. Beware the water that protects the front of the green. Club selection from the tee is essential.

Hole Seven
Par 4

343m
An interesting par 4, which doglegs to the right. The tee shot is played to a plateau fairway with most of the trouble on the right side. Keep left to enable a clear shot to an elevated green.

Hole Eight
Par 4

270m
A short par 4 with a tee shot played over a lake to a fairly wide fairway. Keep right to avoid the tree on the front left of the green. Accuracy is essential, consider an iron off the tee.

Hole Nine
Par 4

387m
The longest par 4 on the course requiring two very good shots to reach the green in two. Large trees and an uphill climb to the green justifies its stroke index.

Hole Ten

Par 5
485m
A pleasing par 5 that needs some good course management. Play a safe second shot with an iron into a fairly wide part of the fairway. The green is well guarded – no bunkers needed around the green here!

Hole Eleven
Par 3

126m
A short par 3 requiring a short iron but be careful not to go off the line left or right! Club selections is a big factor.

Hole Twelve

Par 5
485m
Played from an elevated tee to an uphill fairway. The green is well guarded by two bunkers on the left and one deep-faced bunker front right.

Hole Thirteen
Par 4

400m
This par 4 requires a very accurate tee shot. The green is well guarded by bunkers left and right leaving a narrow entrance to negotiate.

Hole Fourteen

Par 4
302m
A short par 4 but dangerous if you get greedy. Watch out for the water as well as the avenue of trees all the way to the green. A bunker protects the left of the green.

Hole Fifteen
Par 3
148m
A fine par 3. One has to negotiate water all the way from tee to green. With bunkers on the left and right of the green, club selection is of utmost importance.

Hole Sixteen
Par 4
359m
A par 4, which doglegs to the right after the tee shot. A fairway bunker guards the left side and a menacing tree protects the right. Watch out for the water and bunkers covering the left and right of the green.

Hole Seventeen
Par 4
332m
​A par 4 played over water in front of the tee, would be no problem as the carry is +/- 50m. Favour the right side of the fairway.

Hole Eighteen
Par 4
276m
​The shortest par 4 on the course, tricky because of the lake, which cuts into the right side of the fairway. Play short of the water or over the lake. The green is surrounded by bunkers!
