If you come to this area and you are a golfer and don't play Plet CC, you are committing a golfing sin. I have not played on better greens in ages, the rest of the course is also in top notch, friendly staff all round, all I can say is come play!!!!!!!

i come to plett every year for 6 weeks to play golf. it is just the best experience to enter the pro shop and being greeted by at least 4 or 5 friendly faces, who try to help you with your bookings, check you in or just have a friendly chat.

We managed to play 18 holes at this lovely course. It is well-maintained and in the most picturesque setting. It is a challenging course with many water features. Greens were in great condition. The wildlife was interesting if a little frightening. We had to play two holes surrounded by a large troop of baboons who were unconcerned by the golfers... More

Nestled in a valley, really quiet, lots of wildlife and some interesting holes. The greens were sanded when we played but I think that the course is in good condition. Seemed very forgiving and not so long but a really nice course and treat in comparison to the typical holiday type courses. Club house is a bit tired but the... More

We only had time to play 9 holes but we thought the course was great. Well laid out and interesting to play and very open. We rented a cart and clubs. The other golfer who joined us had a caddy and he helped us as well. Boy, did we love that! He was very good and if you could follow... More

Great course and fees and equipment very reasonable, Food and drink cheap. Compulsory half way break for drink and cake!! Lots of baboons on course and we had no problems. Took us around 4.5 hours so ok as long as you are not in a rush.

Demanding course with some tight tree lined fairways and several changes in elevation. Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Requires all the clubs and creative shotmaking. Staff great and local players friendly and inclusive.

We played Plett on the Monday. I have always rated this course very highly, both as a test of golf, as well as aesthetically very pleasing with many birds and bush buck. The condition of the course was really good, the greens very true and a pleasant speed (I prefer faster greens, which these are). The course is very well... More
