A 1994 Golf Data design, the course at the Strand Golf Club lies inland from Strand Beach at False Bay. Tree-lined fairways on the front nine weave around several small water hazards before a tunnel takes golfers to the other side of a highway to play seven more open holes from the 11th to 17th. The same underground passage then returns players to complete their round on the clubhouse side of the road.

Stretching to 5,960 metres, the course plays to a par of 72, with two par threes and two par fives on each nine. Highlight holes include the par four 6th (rated stroke index 2) where out of bounds runs down the left of the fairway and a pond lurks to the front right of the green. On the back nine, #13, #14 and #17 are very challenging holes that play around a couple of sparkling lakes.

The club hosted the South African Women’s Stroke Play and Match Play championships in 2004, when 14-year-old Ashleigh Simon won both events. Now married and known as Mrs. Buhai, Ashleigh turned professional on her 18th birthday and has since enjoyed several wins on the Ladies European Tour.
