Arabella Golf Club

Arabella Golf Club

At Arabella Golf Club, the theme is balance. Challenging enough to bring you back for more, enjoyable enough to make you not want to leave. The design challenge was headed by the renowned architect Peter Matkovich. His undoubted success has resulted in a course that complements the environment without disappointing the golfer, whether expert or amateur.

The course was awarded the Golf Digest award for the best new course in South Africa in 1999. In 2002, the course was rated number 9 in South Africa by Golf Digest and number 5 in 2003. Arabella Golf Club was awarded the Compleat Golfer Five Star award in 2003. It is also featured in Golf Digest's USA's Top 60 courses outside of America in 2007.

The course is 6381 metres in length and has a SAGU rating of 72. It borders the largest natural lagoon in Southern Africa, and the 9th, 17th and 18th run parallel to the lagoon. At strategic places, where there is no water, bunkers have been placed. The lagoon landscape is attractive, and the Arabella ranks among the ten most beautiful courses in South Africa. The course is always in excellent condition, with well-trimmed fairways and extremely fast greens.

Choosing a signature hole proves to be an extremely difficult task as all of the holes are well designed with spectacular views. Golf carts, pull carts and caddies are available.
