Pearl Valley Golf Course

Nestled in the beautiful Paarl-Franschhoek Valley and surrounded by the majestic Simonsberg- and Drakenstein Mountains, lies Pearl Valley at Val de Vie Estate, South Africa’s top residential estate.   Pearl Valley boasts, among numerous other facilities, an iconic Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Named the Best Conditioned course in the Western Cape for 2010, 2011, 2012/2013 and again for 2014/2015 by Golf Digest Magazine and awarded the Compleat Golfer’s Five Star Experience Award for six consecutive years.  The championship course has been ranked amongst the top ten courses in South Africa by Golf Digest Magazine every year from 2006 up to and including 2015.  It’s evident that it does indeed take a legend to make a legend.
