The current conditioning and presentation is excellent following some decent rainfall. The greens are running true and the tees, fairways and bunkers all in good shape. The design variety of all 18 holes at Champagne Sports remains a highlight and this is a memorable and delightful resort course to play even with plenty of visitors during the summer holidays. From risk-reward par 4s (driveable holes like the third and 10th) to the long stroke 1 par 4 eighth, the course presents opportunity and challenges aplenty. The tree-lined fairways demand accuracy off the tee and errant driving is often punished. I particularly enjoy the fourth (par 3 signature hole), the par-5 15th and par-4 18th. The service is of a high standard and the views from the clubhouse patio among the best in South African golf.
