Golf Tour 2007

It's almost upon us, the famous yearly Golf Tour!! This year me and seven mates will be playing a 4 day compo at the following venues: Simola, Knysna. Pezula, Knysna. Oubaai, George and finally Pinnacle Point just outside Mossel Bay. The stakes are high, the beers are chilled and the swing is.... well let's leave that out for the moment. As always there is lots to prepare before hand, you need to ensure that your liver is working at it's peak so suprising it at 6am with shots of Tequila a couple of days prior to the event will get it in shape, quickly :) I have bought a new glove, 12 Taylormade TP Black balls, regripped my driver and irons and put a new putter in the bag... so on all accounts I should play terribly, and I can blame the grips, glove, balls on my poor performance :)

I have raved about Pezula a couple of times, it's a great place to take a break and it really is an end to end experience. This is a quick accomodation review on the Pezula / Sparrebosch villa's, they are either 2 or 4 bedroom units with the 4 bedroom having three bathrooms, a lounge, diningroom, well equipped kitchen and a built in (not undercover) braai! We were lucky enough to get a 4 bedroom unit on our stay that overlooked the 7th hole, what a view (and believe me it took all my restraint not to tee it up on the lawn and fire some shots onto the fairway ;). The place also comes with a golf cart and a double garage, all this for a really reasonable price! Other advantages include discounted rates at the course and it's really close by to the new Spa (voted number one in S.Africa, trust me it's worth a visit!!), Zachary's Restaurant and Hotel. So give sparrebosch letting a call in Knysna and make your booking!!

About 5 minutes outside of plett on the Port Elizabeth side are these awesome self catering forest cottages. The cottages where built by the owner and overlook an indigenous forest. There is a hiking trail that leads you to a black lagoon on whiskey creek! Awesome! They have different cabin options and we have stayed in the 2 person and the larger 4 person cabins, both are awesome. The golf courses in close proximity are: Plett Country Club, Goose Valley and Knysna is just down the road.
