Golfing first for Arabella Golf Club

Enhancing the golfer’s experience, the Arabella Golf Club near Hermanus in the Western Cape is the first in South Africa to introduce Club Car Tempo golf carts...

Set on the same grounds as the African Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa, Autograph Collection, the Arabella Golf Club is a favourite of players all around the world.

This championship course is renowned for its stunning mountain and ocean views and is consistently ranked among the top 10 golf courses in South Africa. Designed by Peter Matkovich, the 18-hole, Par 72 course offers exciting challenges including a number of water hazards and tricky sand traps. The eighth and final holes are regarded as among the most beautiful in the country.   

The club is proud to announce the addition of 52 Club Car Tempo golf carts to its offering. The state-of-the-art fleet offers a range of special features, all geared to make for an enjoyable and comfortable golf experience. Tapping into new technologies, the golf carts offer users the opportunity to ensure that their phones are always charged: each cart includes two dual USB ports, allowing the busy executives to keep in touch with the office, make arrangements with golf partners and keep in touch with the family. Players can even plug in a GoPro to record and perfect their swing, as well as load scores onto whichever golf app they are using.

The carts seat two people each on luxurious two-tone premium seats. To make the entire golf experience easy and comfortable, golf bags are held in place by a magnetic system. The carts, which also come with pull-down rain covers, keep you dry when the heavens open.

Cooler boxes are additional features of the golf carts, offering players refreshing drinks and food and the guarantee of being able to keep cool on hot summer days. 

This latest addition to the facilities to this premier course comes hot on the heels of the introduction of the global Golfscape online golf reservation service. The online booking service, which works in real-time to avoid booking duplications, offers golfers a convenient means of booking their tee times. It is accessible via desktop computers, smartphones and tablets.

Making the grade as one of the country’s finest golf courses comes with a great deal of hard work and investment. Maintaining that status involves continual improvement and identifying ways of ensuring that players get even more – this is what has led to the introduction of the new golf cart fleet at Arabella.
