29 January 2021, Val de Vie Estate – South Africa’s Top 100 Golf Courses, the definitive golf course ranking, announced their 2021 results today and placed the Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course as the second best in the country. Damian Wrigley, Pearl Valley General Manager, comments that, “the past few years have brought unique and significant challenges for the golf industry, especially in the Western Cape where golf clubs faced a water crisis in 2018 and 2019. With a strong and dedicated team and innovative ideas, we managed to navigate these challenges and present a world-class product. A special mention to Golf Course Superintendent Mike Westman and his team from Golf Data, who built the course and has maintained it for the past 18 years.”

In the history of the Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, this is the highest ranking it has received, since obtaining third position in 2010.

“The Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course is a key component of Val de Vie Estate’s wellness offering. Our residents enjoy not only this exceptional golf course, but also a wide range of other wellness facilities like multiple gyms, more than 40km of mountain bike and running trails, equestrian facilities and top restaurants, to name a few.  We are proud of our entire team who made it possible to be one of the top two golf courses in 2021 and the top residential estate in South Africa for the past five years”, remarked Ryk Neethling, Val de Vie Estate Marketing Director.
