Dubai to South Africa for ‘The Golfer’s Bucket List’ South Africa’s Top Golf Courses plus the Big 5 and Cape Town
Day 1 Arrive Cape Town Le Quartier Francais http://www.lqf.co.za/
On arrival at Cape Town International Airport, you will be transferred to the beautiful Winelands of Franschhoek for check in at Le Quartier Francais. Located in the heart of Franschhoek Village, just 45 minutes out of Cape Town, Le Quartier Francais is an ideal base from which to explore the many wonders of the Winelands http://www.winelands.co.za/
Today you will enjoy a round of golf at South Africa’s No. 5 ranked course— Pearl Valley Golf Estate http://www.pearlvalley.co.za/play/the-golf-experience/the-golf-course.html
The Pearl Valley Golf Estate is surrounded by the Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountains and bordered by vineyards with The Berg River water hazard running through it. Nicklaus has stayed true to his design principles by working closely with nature and has provided a golf course that fits in with the environment. This fairly flat and largely uninterrupted terrain enabled Nicklaus the freedom to develop hole strategies making this a golf course the golfer has to think his/her way around. In its engineering and planning detail, the course is very rare. It is crossed by roads in only three places, and the drainage system allows play to continue just minutes after a severe cloudburst. Pearl Valley is an SA Open Championship course.
Day 3 Franschhoek Le Quartier Francais Breakfast and Lunch Travel along the Coast Road via Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay, stopping at the granite boulders where we have magnificent views of the Twelve Apostles, Table Mountain and the beach of Camps Bay.
Continue along Victoria Drive past Bakoven and Llandudno to Hout Bay, a charming village and fishing harbor. Stop at the tip of the Cape Peninsula and visit the lighthouse overlooking False Bay, so named by the early navigators who thought they had arrived at Table Bay.
