General Information
Nestled in the beautiful Paarl-Franschhoek Valley and surrounded by the majestic Simonsberg and Drakenstein Mountains, lies Pearl Valley at Val de Vie Estate, South Africa’s top residential estate. Pearl Valley boasts, among numerous other facilities, an iconic Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.

Named the Best Conditioned course in the Western Cape for 2010, 2011, 2012/2013 and again for 2014/2015 by Golf Digest Magazine and awarded the Compleat Golfer’s Five Star Experience Award for six consecutive years. The championship course has been ranked amongst the top ten courses in South Africa by Golf Digest Magazine every year from 2006 up to and including 2015. Upon construction of the course, 18 hectares of man-made lakes were created and 1 million cubes of soil were removed. Pearl Valley was the second of the current 7Jack Nicklaus courses to be built in South Africa. Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player played the first round of golf in November 2003. The course, since then, has hosted the SA Championship Open for 3 consecutive years, from 2007 to 2009.

The full length of the course ranges from 6749m from the back tees to 5878m from Club Tees for Men and 4935m for Ladies. Pearl Valley has two signature holes; the 4th and the 13th, both offering majestic views of the surrounding mountains and lakes. The 4th hole is a challenging par 5 with little room for error, while the par 3, 13th hole tests both your ball striking and your nerve.

The Golf Shop boasts a variety of golf merchandising and gear which includes Titleist rental sets consisting of the latest irons and the newly launched 917 Driver and fairway woods.

The Golf Course:
As the name implies, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course truly bears the signature of the world’s preeminent golf course designer. It has the thumbprint of arguably the greatest mind in golf history. It is the realization of one man’s vision, philosophy and passion for the greatest game of all.
A Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is the highest tier of design offering from Nicklaus Design, the world leader in golf course design. This design features the most extensive involvement by Jack Nicklaus, who personally directs all design-related issues and serves as promotional spokesman for the golf course. Jack Nicklaus visits the site, as required, during the construction process and provides input and approval on all key design decisions.

The Golden Bear designed and constructed Pearl Valley’s championship course. In 2003 he opened it, commenting, “Surrounded by mountains this is one of the most spectacular settings in which I have designed a golf course.” In the world of golf it is simply not possible to receive a greater endorsement.
