Bring enough balls, especially when the wind blows. A great course, well maintained and providing interesting holes throughout. If you are a middle to high handicapper try the forward tees, it will make an enjoyable round. Forget the champion tees if your are not a champion. Especially hole 6 take more clubs than the distance suggests ( even the driver... More

We first played Oubaai ten years ago when it was brand new and pretty raw with unfinished off-fairway areas and little planting etc. Yesterday we were pleasantly surprised by its condition and look. There is housing around parts of the course but there are also forest and fynbos areas which look well established and well integrated. The panoramic view of... More

The hotel facilities are classy worthy of the highest rating conceivable, and the people are always gracious and totally... More

One thing to keep in mind when you play Oubaai, is the wind. Make sure you select a early tee off time. The wind usually gusts from the sea, and this will have a huge impact on your experience of the course. Oubaai is wonderful course, with tough holes. The greens are tough and is everything you would expect from... More

We played a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf on what is a spectacular and also tough golf course. Yet another great Ernie Els layout. Beautiful and gracious use of the natural contours. Course well maintained, staff friendly and the setting surreal. Definitely worth a play and visit.
