The course is an easy walk and very playable from tee to green for all golfers, even if you have just taken up the game. The beautiful views of the Indian Ocean or the Springbuck roaming on the course might distract you, but they will most definitely leave you with lasting memories. The Mossel Bay golf course signature hole is the 3rd hole, which is a par 4. At almost 400m, and a stroke three, this can be challenging especially when playing into the sea breeze. The tee is situated high above the fairway with magnificent vistas over the estate, and the hole runs downhill towards the green with the Indian Ocean as your backdrop. Well-placed bunkers on either side of the fairway will catch any errand tee shots. The green is a large two level undulating green, which makes a guaranteed par 4 on the hole uncertain, should you find the green with your second shot.
Mossel Bay is an 18-hole par 72 links-style course with a 71 rating.
Bob Grimsdell designed the original layout, and in 1999 Golf Scape (Danie Obermeyer and Phillip Basson) re-designed the course when it was upgraded.
