According to Peter Matkovich – the architect behind Pinnacle Point – this is: “The most dramatic golf course site I've ever encountered anywhere in the world!”
Voted one of the ten “Best New Courses of 2006” by Travel and Leisure magazine, Pinnacle Point was destined for a top spot in South Africa’s Top 100. The following passage is what Gordon Turner, writing for Travel and Leisure, had to say about Pinnacle Point:
“Perched atop staggering cliffs, this windswept course four hours east of Cape Town and a half hour south of George marks a major addition to the already world-class golf scene in South Africa. Seven holes play across chasms to greens that seem to be floating in the Indian Ocean. The yawning ravines and distant horizons make 150-yard shots look twice that length. On the par-four eighth, tee and green sit on opposing bluffs; big hitters can attempt an all-or-nothing carry in the hope of driving the green, or else bail out to the left and face a much longer approach.”
Played it for about the third time today. Course - good, condition - okay. Wow factor - 10/10. I cannot imagine there being better wow golf holes in the world than 9, 12, 13 and 18 at Pinnacle Point. Incredible views!!
