The Southbroom golf course is rated as one of the finest holiday courses in South Africa. It is unique!

Eighteen challenging holes wind their way through the peaceful village, down to the seashore and alongside the Frederika Nature Preserve. Paved pathways meander through the 5525m long course with its verdant fairways and well manicured greens. Indigenous plants and trees are systematically being re-introduced, complementing the sub-tropical natural bush of the coastal dune forests. Tree spotters will delight in all the identified species. The series of dams that come into play on all but 5 holes have become a haven for a thriving, ever increasing, bird population as well as water monitor lizards (leguaans). Vervet monkeys abound and in the bush alongside the 17th you often see the shy Blue Duiker and Bushbuck. 

In 1939 Frank Eyles laid out the original 9 holes. In 1948 the course was extended to 18 holes, with only 4 of the original 9 holes being incorporated in the A.L. Mandy design. The Southbroom Golf Club was founded in 1950 and its clubhouse, that commands impressive views across the course and over the Indian Ocean, was opened in 1954.

The Club boasts well known South African golfer Derek James as Resident Golf Professional and Golf Director. Derek is qualified to teach either the novice or the more experienced golfer, and is always willing to assist with lessons to perfect your game.
