Played as part of a touring golf group. Unfortunately wind was howling so perhaps this did not give us a true reflection! All took carts but as the course is pretty flat we could have easily walked. Greens extremely fast and fairways not too bad...More

Hello SharkySA Thank you for your comments. We are generally proud of the condition of the course for most of the year. This summer (Jan-Feb 2016) our fairways are really struggling in these drought conditions. The winter grass is now dormant and does not look...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
