An amazing place to explore - Clarens is a beautiful town in a lovely mountain setting. The restaurants in the area are excellent, and there are lots of them to try out. The stores and art galleries have unusual items available, so it is a great place for shopping. Clarens is quiet and it was very relaxing to spend time there. There are walking trails, and it is highly enjoyable just walking around town because of the majestic mountains. We also visited the nearby Golden Gate National Park, with its incredible rock formations, as well as the Ficksburg Cherry Festival (about 1 hour away). Clarens is a great place for a soothing getaway!

Edmeston party - While the course is indeed challenging and the greens are in excellent condition, the fairways are almost non-existent.,we feel that charging premium fees for a round of golf on a course which does not have fairways is a bit much. Lovely clubhouse, friendly staff and the sandwiches we had were excellent.
