Nestled in the pristine and tranquil Silvermine Valley close to Fish Hoek in Cape Town lies Clovelly Country Club. With one of the finest golf courses in South Africa, Clovelly offers its members and visitors a memorable experience.
Clovelly – like fine Cape wines – improves steadily with age, and its vintage and quality is well established throughout South Africa, and indeed, beyond our shores. This reputation is founded on the warmth of Clovelly’s “family” character, its outstanding facilities, and steps we have taken, such as opening the Club to all irrespective of race, creed or gender, to ensure that Clovelly truly reflects the high ideal of its motto: “Fraternitas Ludorum”.
Clovelly has always been one of the most popular clubs in the Western Cape. A robust membership profile ensures that the club thrives from sporting, competitive, social and financial perspectives.
Clovelly is one of the most frequently visited courses. Visitors from as far as Thailand and Ireland frequent our fairways, and tour groups from far flung corners of the world regularly repeat their visits because of the golfing experienced to be enjoyed in our pristine valley. Indeed, in some cases visitors from Europe spend up to six or eight months a year with us.
Between our members and our valued visitors some 60 000 rounds are played on the golf course each year. One can see why it is necessary to plan and book your rounds in advance. Even though the amount of rounds is high, the course is consistently in good condition. Our greens are respected around the world!
Our golf course and facilities are consistently rated in the top fifty in the country by a leading panel of raters utilized in the annual South African “Compleat Golfer” survey of golf clubs. The results of this survey are published annually by the “Compleat Golfer”. Given that there are over 450 golf clubs in South Africa, this result is something of which we are proud and we continually seek ways to to improve our standards, and indeed our golf course.
Potential course improvements are continuously reviewed, and if agreed to, are undertaken with minimal disruption to the course itself. We vigorously apply a policy that the nature and characteristics of the course must never be changed; course changes must merely serve to enhance and improve the layout.
