The Metropolitan Golf Club was reconstructed and opened for play in May 2010. Lying in the shadow of Table Mountain and the 2010 Football World Cup Stadium, the course belies the 9 hole status and 14 greens.
With long and or separate tees, together with 14 Greens, the course plays very much like an 18 hole layout. The large greens and wide fairways make the course very playable for the average amateur while still a test for the lower handicapper.
The course is parkland in design with Bent Grass greens and Kikuyu fairways. 4 different species of local grasses have been planted in various areas of the rough, giving the course a very distinctive look.
While situated on the coast, the wind is far less of a factor than is normal to other surrounding areas of the Cape Peninsula and this further facilitates the ability to keep the course in superb playing condition.
The course designer, Mark Muller, has created something of real significance, and the variation of holes together with the proximity of the City of Cape Town metropolitan area makes this a “must be played” course.
The closing 18th par 3 hole over water will long be remembered by those who visit and play the course.
