Cape Town Escorted Tour details:
Fly to Cape Town and join an Escorted tour of some of the best golf in the Western Cape of South Africa, in warming summer temperatures. This event will be hosted by Terry and Stephanie Rawding.
For the 7th year Cape Town has been voted Best City in the World in The Telegraph Awards, our clients are the best judges, and many join us every January.
Arrivals day is 15/01/23, after an overnight flight from the UK - Erinvale is 40mins from Cape Town International airport.
Many clients choose to arrive early to see Cape Town - we can accommodate you in the heart of Cape Town and we have a range of options and budgets. From a stay at The Waterfront, to a better value option a mile or so away, with free Waterfront transfers.
Let us arrange your Cape Town hotel and we can collect you from your hotel, rather than the airport on the morning of 15/01/23. Or you can arrive earlier at Erinvale, prior to the tour.
We can even arrange for you to arrive in Cape Town on "the most luxurious train in the world", with Rovos Rail - we have a perfect 2-night journey from Pretoria.
You will quickly recover from your travels at relaxing Erinvale, which includes a Spa. This is a boutique hotel in the Erinvale estate in Somerset West, on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountains and surrounded by vineyards. The estate dates back to a Dutch farmstead in the 1700's and the Erinvale golf course, designed by Gary Player has hosted the World Cup of Golf. This year we have added an extra night at Erinvale to make the most relaxing 8-night stay.
Erinvale Hotel Erinvale Golf
There are only 57 rooms, and all were refurbished in 2017. You can relax in the fountain courtyard, surrounded by thatched roof cottages. Or sit by either of the two pools or on the patio, which is the hub of Erinvale. Our clients adore the charm of Erinvale and the service on offer. Dining in is easy, with a choice of 3 menus, but do also let us take you out to dine in our favourite restaurants and wineries in the Somerset West and Stellenbosch areas!
There is time in the schedule for you play spectacular golf couses and for you to enjoy all of the attractions of Cape Town and the Western Cape or play additional golf! The golf courses are selected to allow you to see the Western Cape and the drives to/from golf, will in themselves be great sightseeing opportunities for golfers and non-golfers.

This is what some of our South African regular travellers had to say about South Africa Golf Holidays with Golf to a Tee ....
"I just love going to South Africa ... the scenery, hotels, service, wine, great food, then there are the spectacular golf courses ... I just can't stop going back! When you add in the lovely GTAT clients, plus the care & superb organisation from GTAT - it's simply the best golf holiday you could wish for". Iain S
"Terry & Stephanie add so much to the holiday - the evenings are as important as the golf! How did they find all of these wonderful restaurants & great prices! Then there is the Erinvale hotel, the base for the Cape Town tour, I challenge anyone to find a more welcoming & relaxing hotel" Deborah B
"For me it's such a tonic to leave the UK winter to head off each January/February to South Africa with GTAT. I've been everywhere with them, but their South Africa Golf Holidays are simply the best! The Erinvale & Fancourt hotels are like second homes!". Mike H
"The GTAT schedules have a good mix of golf & time for relaxation & sightseeing - there is so much you will want to do & to see in South Africa. You can arrive early to spend time in Cape Town or stay on after the Garden Route to stay at a Game Reserve & lots more! A tour of South Africa is the most memorable holiday." Alison L
