For six consecutive years Compleat Golfer bestowed the Five Star Experience Award on the course.


The L’Huguenot Vinoteque is home to our exclusive Val de Vie and Polo Club ranges.The Val de Vie collection consists of sophisticated, timeless blends including the Ryk Neethling Premium Blend, The Valley of Life Signature Blend, The Epic Cape blend and Cuvee de Vie MCC. The Polo Club range has three different blends and is a perfect match for any palate, including Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Chardonnay/Pinot Noir.

The cellar is open on Fridays between 16h00 and 19h00 for wine purchases. For tours and individual tastings (offered to groups of 6 and more),  please make contact with our Cellar Manager.
