Overview

Widely known as the Most popular Course in the Cape, Westlake Golf Club is a very well maintained Golf Course, that offers a challenge to beginners and seasoned golfers. The parkland layout is challenging to all golfers, with a lot of reward for good shots and mild punishment for those shots hit off line. Visitors are welcome on all days except Saturday's, which are reserved for member competitions. Westlake has a wonderful post golf vibe. Come and play a round of golf and enjoy yourself after the round.

Westlake is š typical Cape Town course - decent but not one to play more than once. All the holes feel the same. The par 3s are nice and there is a par 5 hole on front 9 with risk reward drive at an angle...More

Westlake is great for a round of golf. Nestled up against the Silvermine mountains the well manicured greens and fairways are superb. Just remember, on the greens, the ball always comes from the moment nation side! Or so it has been told

Having not played Westlake in a number of years, I was incredibly disappointed to find almost all of the fairways were in quite an appalling state. Although a 'one club length' placing rule was in place there were many locations on a number of fairways...More
