The Gary Player-designed 18-hole golf course has fast become renowned throughout the golfing fraternity both locally and abroad. The impressive club house provides all the appropriate amenities for golfers, including an outstanding Pro Shop. The hotel holds memberships at Erinvale Golf Club and therefore can offer hotel guests preferential rates.

Erinvale hosted the 1996 World Cup of Golf, where thirty-two participating nations competed. The international golfers found the course both a golfing challenge and visual delight. Erinvale also hosted the 2005 SAA Open, showcasing South African golfing talent.

Besides Erinvale, the Cape has many other fine golf courses, such as Stellenbosch, De Zalze, Arabella, Devonvale and Pearl Valley.
