Langebaan Country estate (18)

General Information
The course has more than a hint of Player`s design philosophy, with well-positioned bunkers and his typical routing for all levels of golfers. Throw in some amazing natural rock formations, the large water feature separating the 10th and 18th fairways and the natural wild flowers, birdlife, and a variety of buck species. It is clear that Langebaan Country Estate is only one growing season away from becoming a course that will stand out as an unforgettable experience. This spectacular course plays 6359m from the championship tees (6994 yards), 5826m to 6071m from the club- and senior tees, and 5202m from the ladies tees with an overall course rating of 71. The course drains extremely well making it playable all year round, unlike many of the Western Cape`s golf courses..

Location
Today the town of Langebaan is a mixture of the very old and the very new, with a strong Parks Board presence, a country club and numerous holiday facilities. Much of its old-world innocence is still there, but, as a setting for the activities of water sport and fishing enthusiasts.

This lagoon town has a definite place in history, as it once was the site where the various leaders of the Khoi nation held their periodic get - togethers. Since WW II, when the giant Catalina Flying boats used Langebaan as a terminal for their long journeys from the UK, the village has had an uneventful, quiet development, gradually growing into the favourite West Coast town for pensioners.

Earlier in the century, when the biggest whaling station in the southern hemisphere was still operational here, langebaan was not quite as peaceful as today. Since the closure of the station, however, Langebaan has changed completely, settling down into the pattern of a seasonal holiday town.

Authors such as Lawrence Green started mentioning the town in their books, although previously famous figures such as Lady Anne Barnard and Thunberg, the botanist, were struck by the quaintness of the place.

This out of ordinary characteristic was also picked up by scientists, especially paleontologists, who succeeded in tracing Langebaan`s origins to a period ten million years ago.

Latter day writers all refer to the "Langebaan Charisma", - on the eastern shores of a blue-green lagoon, that stretches seventeen kilometres to the south.

Langebaan`s claim to fame include -
* the biggest oyster shell deposits in the world
* its position as the ornithological capital of RSA
* its fascinating islands steeped in history
* the Postberg peninsula
* The West Coast National Park
* its healthy climate with bracing air and sunlit days
* many more

European prescence started as early as the fifteenth century, with French sealers. They were followed by Scandinavian, British and Dutch sea-farers. The Portuguese somehow missed Langebaan completely, their nearest landfall being St Helena Bay.

According to some historians, Phoenicians from the sacked city of Carthage, landed on the beaches of Langebaan well before the birth of Christ.

Some of the most sought-after seafront properties are found on the Lagoon. Langebaan boasts upmarket accommodation, a choice of restaurants, two caravan parks, a golf course, tennis courts, a bowling green, a yacht club and the normal businesses, selling anything from seafood to hardware and holiday equipment.

Directions
From Cape Town take the West Coast Road (R27) in the direction of Velddrift. After approximately one hour you will see the turn-off to Langebaan on your left at the Engen garage. Continue for about 5km and you will see the gates to the estate to your left before you get to the town.
