Oubaai Golf Club is proud to be the first Ernie Els signature course in South Africa. The golf course design allows for a challenge to all levels of golfer and is a testimony to the talents of South Africa's favourite golfing son.
A traditional Links layout, the course has nine holes out and nine holes back. This has enabled the club to offer a unique two-tee operation, the first being an exclusive members' only area on the 1st tee and a visitor section on the 10th tee. Each area has its own clubhouse for golfers to enjoy the tranquillity and benchmark golfing experience offered by Oubaai.
The layout of the course demands the full gambit of shots needed to score well. There are five par-3s and five par-5s. The par-5s are all genuine par-5, as the shape of the hole and bunkering persuade golfers to lay up… or, of course, go for broke! The par-3s are crucial to good scoring; they vary in length, so club choice will differ on each hole as distance and wind condition come to bear. All greens are well bunkered and elevation cleverly used to increase the thought process required on each tee shot.
