Pinnacle Point Golf Estate


Breathtakingly beautiful in its scenery, dramatically memorable in its challenge and exquisite in its manicuring standards, Pinnacle Point’s 18-hole championship golf course is on par with the best in the world.

Designer by renowned golf architect Peter Matkovich and professional golfer Darren Clark, this collection of 18 holes provides a wonderful all-round challenge in what many consider to be Matkovich’s best work on home soil.

The course stretches along four kilometres of spectacular coastline, boasting dramatic cliff-side holes, panoramic ocean views and 1000 acres of unspoiled beachfront.

Located near Mossel Bay along South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route, Pinnacle Point Beach and Golf resort is a design masterpiece, entitled by Matkovich himself as the ‘the most dramatic golf course site I’ve ever encountered anywhere in the world’ and rated by Clark as “the best golf course on the planet”.

Course Description

Overlooking the Indian Ocean near Mossel Bay, and designed by Peter Matkovich and 2011 Open Champion, Darren Clarke, Pinnacle Point is one of the most unique and scenic golf courses in the world.

This Clifftop Fynbos Golf Course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breathtaking terrain. The 72 par layout is characterised by 7 majestic holes that line the Indian Ocean rock cliffs, four of which are played over ocean and cliff. All 18 holes have been designed to fit the contours of the land.

Golfers have access to a number of world-class facilities, including the Louis Oosthuizen Junior Academy, driving range, putting green, club-fitting and repairs workshop, and excellent pro shop, not to mention a clubhouse with 270-degree sea views.

Course Information

Pinnacle Point’s course is a Par 72 with five tee options per hole: pro tee, championship tee, club tee, pensioner tee and ladies tee.

The effective combination of bent grass on the greens and rei and fescue on the fairway create a supreme golfing landscape which can handle large amounts of foot traffic while remaining unspoilt.

While the dramatic course may appear visually intimidating at first, each hole is moderate in length and offers good scoring opportunities for the discerning golfer.

This was made possible by Matkovich resisting the trend to stretch the course to unplayable lengths.
