Hazendal’s new golf course has been causing quite a stir among Capetonian golfing aficionados and visiting golf enthusiasts alike since the greens first opened early in 2021, and to be honest, we weren’t all that surprised.
Here’s what you need to know about playing golf at Hazendal and why the world-class par-3 course gained instant popularity.
The Hazendal golf course design and layout
Hazendal’s new golf course is an expertly designed and manicured par-3 short course, with large, tricky greens that feature many undulations to challenge golfers of all skill levels. The course is relatively short but calls for incredible accuracy with short irons, especially when conditions are windy.
Expect thick roughs that put short-game skills to the test, as well as bentgrass greens that make for a beautifully smooth putting surface that’s receptive to spin and holds the true line of a putt to a T.
The surrounding scenery and natural setting of the Hazendal golf course are also something quite spectacular. Think pockets of conserved natural vegetation, indigenous trees and distant mountain views. In short - awe-inspiring.
“The Hazendal golf course is a fantastic option for golfers who want to enjoy a great game, but don’t want to take too much time doing so. A course like this should not take longer than 2 hours to play. It is also easier for juniors and beginners, and is conducive to learning all the intricacies of the game regardless of its length,” says Lana Orgovanyi, Hazendal Golf Manager.
Summer hours at the new Hazendal golf course are as follows:
- Tuesday to Thursday: 07:00 - 18:00
- Friday and Saturday: 06:30 - 18:30
- Sundays: 06:30 - 17:30

But wait, there’s more...
