Westlake Golf Club


Course Description:

Westlake’s 18-hole parkland style course was designed by their very own members. With consultation and advice from professionals, many significant improvements have been made over the years.

Their greens are all Poa Annua – which is a very delicate grass that requires lots of “TLC” but if managed correctly, delivers an excellent putting surface. Fairways, semi-rough, tee boxes and rough are mainly Kikuyu, as is the standard in South Africa.

The golf course is meticulously managed on a daily basis with the greens and the bunkers being maintained each day. The fairways and rough are mowed regularly and although the rough can be tough at times, we at Westlake like to pride ourselves in delivering a true test of golf.

We have a driving range which is a short warm-up area of distances no more than 160m. There are two chipping/putting greens surrounded by one bunker to sharpen your short game.
