Kloof is a former Top 100 course. It spent nine consecutive years from 2001 to 2009 in the Golf Digest Top 100 rankings (best position was 75), and it remains an enjoyable and interesting course to play, in good condition too. The hilly nature of the layout means you are usually playing downhill or uphill throughout the round. The par-4 first plummets steeply downhill and around a corner to the green, an excellent opener. The par 3s, and there are five of them, are about the only flat holes. The back nine has the best holes, and the tenth, 14th and 16th are outstanding par 4s.
