Located in Hermanus, which is near Cape Town, Arabella Golf Club, an 18-hole, Par 72 Championship course has consistently been ranked among the country’s top 10 golf courses. The eighth hole has been described as being among South Africa’s most beautiful par five’s, with the 18th hole also being labelled as one of the country’s finest finishing holes.
The course was designed and built by acclaimed South African golf course architect Peter Matkovich in 1999. Since then, many professionals and celebrities have enjoyed the Arabella Golf experience, including Jack Nicklaus, Samuel L. Jackson, and Gary Player.
In 2017, Marriott Golf expanded its resort golf facilities to Fiji, New Caledonia, Uruguay, Spain and Portugal.
