Ebotse is worth visiting in winter (value for money on Monday / Tuesday is hard to beat) as this is when it most closely feels like a true links experience. The fairways have run which means a well struck iron will advance a considerable distance. The course provides a good test of driving accuracy and shot shaping. It is not a typical Gauteng layout, an enjoyable change from parkland options. The greens complexes are varied and demand an accurate approach which adds to the challenge. The surfaces are superb and running true. The mown areas are tightly knitted and provide a great response to shots. The par 3s are a highlight, Nos 2, 8 and 11 having a good memorability factor. Par on the second (often playing over 190m) is an excellent result. The par 5 closing hole (532m) demands a solid drive over the wetland area to find the fairway.
