Arabella Hotel & Spa's Golf Course climbs in the South African 2012 rankings
April 23, 2012

The picturesque Arabella Golf Course, nestled on the banks of southern Africa's largest lagoon in Kleinmond, has climbed to number 4 in the latest Golf Digest rankings of South African courses that were revealed in the magazine this week.

Courses are rated by a panel on a number of criteria that includes design, course condition and playability. The 18 hole, Par 72 Peter Matkovich Championship Arabella Golf Course has earned respect from the world's finest golfers and has consistently been ranked as one of the top courses in South Africa. The 8 th hole has been described as one of the most beautiful par 5s in the country, and the 18th has been rated one of the finest finishing holes.

The Arabella Hotel & Spa is one of only a handful of 5-star resorts in South Africa where golfers can literally roll out of their rooms onto a Top 5 golf course. The clubhouse is part of the hotel, and the 1st tee box is barely 50metres away.

Arabella Golf Director Jonathan Menteath said that the higher ranking showed the attention to detail and commitment to bettering the course from the enthusiastic STAFF. "We're doing the right thing; moving in the right direction. It's particularly gratifying that we've climbed because as a hotel management company (African Pride Hotels) we've had Arabella as part of our portfolio for less than a year."

This sentiment was echoed by Protea Hospitality Group CEO Arthur Gillis, who said African Pride Hotels was committed to offering superb facilities and service to Arabella GUESTS and club visitors. He congratulated the STAFF that had contributed to the climb in the ranking on their hard work.

The other South African golf courses in the Top 5 are Leopard Creek Country Club The Links at Fancourt, Gary Player Country Club at Sun City and Pearl Valley in Paarl.
