Cotswold Downs Golf Course


Course Description:

Cotswold Downs boasts one of South Africa’s finest and most impeccably manicured golf courses. Designed by Peter Matkovich to USGA specifications, this magnificent 18-hole championship parklands type course blends seamlessly with its surrounds, and features bent grass greens, undulating fairways and outstanding natural water features. A mixture of cool-season and summer grasses allow the course to be lush all year round.

The fairways are punctuated by dams, wetlands and ponds that attract a variety of birds and insects, and the course is laid out in such a way as to allow golfers to enjoy the natural surrounds thanks to excellent elevation techniques and the clever placement of tee boxes.

Both beginners and experienced golfers will find the course challenging but enjoyable, and at a length of 6193 metres, golfers can expect the odd long par 5 which will test their driving skills, with cleverly placed bunkers and water hazards adding to the challenge.
