Boschenmeer Golf Estate
Boschenmeer Golf Estate is a dream course in a stunning natural environment. It is well worth the 30 minute drive from Franschhoek and is popular for its hospitality and friendliness. This picturesque 27-hole parkland course, situated on the Boschenmeer Country Estate, is just outside the historic town of Paarl, framed by the majestic Drakenstein mountains and the famous Paarl Rock. Boschenmeer is amongst the must-play courses in South Africa.
Records show that golf in Paarl was, in all probability, first played in the 1880’s when Mr Wahl, an attorney, pioneered the game in the town. It is still being played there at the Boschenmeer Golf Estate, home of the Paarl Golf Club.
