Dear Petro and Welmar,
I just want to give you some short feedback from our golf trip at Pezula/Pinnacle point this last weekend.
Firstly, a big thank you to you Petro for the excellent organisation, everything worked like a dream.
The Villas that we rented at Pezula were absolute top class, incredibly nice. We had two Villas just next to each other, one of them even had a pool table in the cellar, so super for entertaining a bunch of guys. This simply could not have been better, and is a hidden gem for anybody.
The “villas” at Pinnacle, were also ok, so no real complaints, just want to give you an honest opinion. I think they are better described as nice apartments than Villas. They are also okay for entertainment, good braai area etc, but they are a bit awkward, away from everything, you can not take your car to the apartment, need a shuttle to get your luggage from the car parking lot to the apartment (or walk far depending on which apartment you have), they are far from the clubhouse, far from the driving range, so wherever you want to go, you have to get your car (which is far from the apartment in worst case). I guess it also did not help that our two apartments which we had were far from each other, so the group of 8 was really split into two groups of four. Perhaps we were spoilt after Pezula, perhaps we are a bit picky, the place is ok, but not more than that.
As for the golf, we knew Pezula/Simola and Pinnacle before, they are our favourite courses in South Africa, so absolutely brilliant. What came a s a really positive surprise though is George Golf club, absolute top class, super value for money, and a really nice change to play a good old style course after having played the other three modern style courses. I can really recommend this course to anybody. We all said this course is not that far away in quality from Montague/Oteniqua, in standard, which is a pretty good rating.
Once again, thank you for such excellent organisation.
Thanks for the organising, your service was superb.
Really appreciate all you have done to make the tour a success.

My wife Connie and I returned home Monday from a journey each of considers our trip of a lifetime. Thank you both so very much for your role in booking Rovos Rail and arranging our pre- and post-train transfers, accommodations, and tours. Everything was executed flawlessly…
Both the Villa Sterne in Pretoria and the Queen Victoria Hotel in Cape Town were elegant and totally satisfactory in every respect…
We would like to give special recognition to Hylton Ross drivers Danny in Pretoria and Garth in Cape Town. Each drove us for both transfers to and from our hotel. They were on time, courteous, friendly, and professional, and we enjoyed very much our time with them..
We would also like to recognize Brittney, our Hylton Ross guide for both the Cape Point and the Cape Town morning tours. She was knowledgeable and personable, and she did a superb job on each occasion…
Connie and I were delighted with Rovos Rail and with Golf in South Africa. c
The trip was a great success and enjoyed by all.
I regret we didn’t get to play the Player course at Sun city but Lost city course was good.
Three nights is enough for Sun city . Cascades hotel was excellent but overall there was
not a good selection of restaurants in the resort.
Entabeni was very enjoyable. Accommodation was good. Service and food was good .
The game drives were well run with an excellent guide. The golf course is not in good condition
but this is due to the animals who live there and I don’t have a problem with that
– entabeni is all about the animals. The extreme 19th is terrific and well worth the money
The Da Vinci hotel was excellent well located .
Bushwillow randpark was an enjoyable course but Glendower was the golfing highlight
and should be on any golf itinerary in the area. Fantastic course and even though we were
late and they were busy we were well received.
Both Destination wild and Hylton Ross provided an excellent service with all drivers prompt,
obliging and friendly.This was a major factor in our enjoyment as we never had to wait or
feel we had to hurry and the drivers were also informative .
An excellent trip and all’s well that ends well!
Thank you very much for everything. The trip went very well and all the reservations and choices were perfect. We also were lucky with the weather.
In general the quality of accommodations exceed our expectations, although the last hotel at Simola doesn’t correspond to a 5 star hotel, the service was not the best.
I will ask my colleges to answer to you, because for me was not the first time, I knew already most of the places, but for them was a baptism and I think is important to have their opinions too.
Again thank you very much and I will recommend your services to everybody in the future.
May I take this opportunity to thank Golf in South Africa for their superb service received from their professional staff, I was looking to arrange a golfing weekend and came across Golf in South Africa. From my very first interaction with the company I was made to feel at ease and that they Golf in South Africa would arrange my every requirement for the weekend.
Every aspect of our trip was arranged and managed extremely well to the extent that on our return from our first Golf in South Africa arranged trip we immediately arranged another trip with them.
It is an absolute pleasure dealing with the Golf in South Africa team & would recommend there professional services to any individual looking to arrange a fantastic golf getaway.
King Pins Golf Social Club is a exclusive club that have high standards in all club activities including social responsibilities.Annually Kings takes the Year End Tour seriously as this is the right time to reflect and also show greatest appreciation to our supporting spouses(Queens). The choice of having the Year End Tour in San Lameer (KZN SA)was inspired by #BBF( bring back the fun) theme and needed diligent planning. The Ultimate success on our planning was enabled by Natalie Cloete of “Golf in South Africa” who have worked tirelessly to bring an Epic Tour. Natalie was able to customize our package with great professionalism as if she is a Queen. Kings surely has partner going forward including our mid year sizzler.

THANK You for a VERY WELL organised tour!! :-)))
All good things comes to a end, we’re all back Finland / Hong Kong …
P.s. the “Saffas” won it (fare & square) but we know why: you organised it too well!
Anyway, we FIN’s lost the battle but not the war so “WE WILL BE BACK”!
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for this wonderful golfing holiday. Everything went off really smoothly, the accommodation was great and we even had superb weather.
We plan to make this an annual event so will be in touch again next year,
We were on vacation near Cape Town December 2014 and reserved one golf package and some green fees thru Golf in South Africa. We got great service from them and specially Petro Coetzee gave us good hints where to stay and which golf courses we should play. Travelling was easy with our rented car and food and wine was excellent with amazing scenery. It’s quite sure that we are coming back to see more of beautiful South Africa and we’ll use Petro’s services again.

I happened upon Golf in South Africa purely by chance on the internet whilst planning a golf trip from Switzerland to South Africa. I am a golf teacher in Switzerland but grew up in Johannesburg and have been doing tours for some time now. Petro was nothing but a complete pleasure to work with and answered all my queries ( there were many!!!) promptly and professionally in very short time. I have and will continue to make use of their services which I rate extremely highly indeed. Keep up the great work.
Last September we started searching the web for a travel agency specialising in golf in South Africa. This was to be our first time playing golf in this beautiful country. We contacted quite a few but we ended up using Golfinsouthafrica.com. Petro Coetzee was our contact and she set up all the guest houses and starting times on the golf courses. Everything booked was of top quality and everywhere we went people were very forthcoming and helpful. During our trip we only once contacted the agency to change a tee time because of bad weather… Everything was so well organised we didn’t need anything else from her…We are planning to use the agency again this fall when we return to South Africa on another tour. Brilliant!
Our group was very satisfied with the trip organized by golfinsouthafrica.com. The magic word Petro opened all the doors even if someone didn’t find the reservation from his computer in the first place. So wish you everything good for the future.
