Erinvale Golf Club

South Africa,

Par 72, 6056 metres

Erinvale is in the winelands region, with spectacular views of the Hottentots Holland mountain range, where Hottentots - the name the Dutch gave to the South African tribe they found there - used to take refuge after stealing cows. The mountains form a barrier between the Cape Peninsula and the south coast.
 
From the higher back nine, you can see Cape Town in the distance, and the ocean, and from almost the whole course you'll have views of the surrounding hills, and vineyards gleaming in the African sun. Wine dominates this part of the rugged country at the tip of the African continent.  In this case, the two blend spectacularly; Erinvale is ranked the seventh toughest by the South Africa edition of Golf Digest.
 
There's a good variety of holes and enough water to keep it interesting. It was designed by South African Gary Player who also did the Gary Player Country Club, perennially ranked at the top of the country's courses.
 

The course can be difficult. No. 1, a dogleg right over a fynbo dam, has been rated among the toughest opening holes in South Africa. Your second shot is to a table-top green guarded by bunkers with a dam to the right.

No. 6 is a long par 4 that takes a good drive to reach it with any degree of accuracy in regulation and No. 17 is a narrow, downhill par 4 between pines on the left and out of bounds on the right, to a small green impeded by bunkers. No. 13 is probably the most scenic hole on the course, a par 5 overlooking False Bay.
