Southbroom Golf Club has many friends and admirers from all over South Africa and the World. It is a course that receives very favourable mentions regularly in the golf magazines and feedback from golfers.
The views from the course are magnificent. Out to sea when from May to December you may see a whale spouting, or some dolphins as you tee off from the 4th. Alternatively, the Vervet monkeys may catch your attention (careful, head up!) as you play around the course. If fortunate, you may also see one of the shy Duiker (particularly along the 17th) that forages along behind the monkeys.
Derek James, the Professional, is the only Pro to have achieved the double Accolade of PGA Pro of the Year and PGA Teaching Pro of the Year. Derek and with his wife Sheena, run the friendliest and best equipped Pro shop along the coast.
