Citrusdal Golf Club is one of the best 9-hole golf courses in the Western Cape

Citrusdal Golf Club

The ultimate enjoyment of golf lies at the heart of the Citrusdal Golf Club, in Citrusdal, on the West Coast countryside. 

The story of the Citrusdal Golf Club traces back to 1960, when a group of 15 residents decided to build a golf course at a common ground called the ‘Koeikamp’. However, as fate would have it, despite their efforts, their 4 hole-course fell away.

In 1975, another group decided to also take on the ‘Koeikamp’ and built a 9-hole course. In the 80’s, the club’s committee managed to buy the ‘Koeikamp’ land.

Today, the Citrusdal Golf Club hosts a number of popular golf events including the Citrusdal Open, Land Bank Tournament, Citrusdal Invitational, Seatrade Classic and the Captain’s Tournament.

Golfing at Citrusdal Golf Club

The Citrusdal Golf Club is noted as one of the best 9-hole golf courses in the Western Cape. It offers a scenic course that is very level and situated on the banks of the Olifants River with views of the magnificent Cederberg Mountains.

Golfers say the course itself is very intimidating and challenging, but worth the visit.

The golf club has been commended for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Visitors are welcome and can pay a very reasonable fee before getting on the greens.

Facilities include a big enough club house; a stocked bar for post-game relaxation and a braai area.

The golf course is also suited for intimate private events and gatherings.

Reviews from people who have played on the Citrusdal Golf Club course

“Regardless of the drought, Citrusdal Golf Club’s greens have improved significantly since 2017 and are currently in top condition! The fairway still needs attention, but is in an overall acceptable condition. Proud to be a member here!” wrote Ferdi Visser on their Facebook page.

Johan Scholtz agreed; “Great people friendly club. Challenging 9-hole course.”

“A place I can call home. Friendly locals make for an enjoyable experience and a hard working staff make for a quality of field that surpasses any expectations. As an avid golfer I have had many a different experience regarding golf at different courses. I can truly say my best all round experience could be accredited to Citrusdal Golf Club. As a local, I know the ins and outs and always enjoy my time here, even if the golf is not always AA good. With a bar always stocked and a pool table, the 19th offers plenty,” added Thomas Hofmeyr.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
