The Kingswood Golf Estate is perfectly placed between the Fancourt Links and George Golf Course at the very heart of the Garden Route’s golf hub. From its perfect blend of design and scenery, to its temperate weather, you’re certain to find Kingswood’s Championship Golf Course a unique challenge, and one you’ll want to take up again and again.
If you ask a local, they will tell you that Kingswood has the best greens on the Garden Route and this is one of the main reasons why it is often frequented by the Sunshine Tour Players when they are not on tour.
The design is inspired by the Home of Golf, St Andrews (The Old Course) in Scotland with its Links style open fairways, undulating greens and traditional pot bunkers. There is no other course in South Africa like it, which makes it a ‘must play’ if you are travelling in the area.
On the first nine you should be off to a good start as the course follows the spectacular topography of the landscape. The tee boxes have recently been redone and the course is in mint condition. The greens are consistently fast, so soft hands and finesse is the key to sinking your putts.
Your scores should be good on the front nine, as the back nine is a challenge that’s ‘better than most’. From the 10th, the views turn to the Outeniqua Mountains and they are breathtakingly beautiful. Your golf experience builds as each hole is different with its own nuances, trickery and challenge. The last 4 holes is a challenge second to none and if you can make it through here by parring all 4 holes on a competition day with no “gives” – introduce yourself to the management team and collect a free round voucher.
Either way, this ultimate golf challenge will keep you coming back for more. This course is truly the Jewel of the Garden Route and should not be missed on any golfing tour.
