Discover The Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course
The ‘Golden Bear’ opened the course in 2003, commenting: “Surrounded by mountains this is one of the most spectacular settings in which I have designed a golf course.” In the world of golf, it is simply not possible to receive a greater endorsement.
It has the thumbprint of a true champion and is the realisation of one man’s vision, philosophy and passion for the greatest game of all.
A Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course is the highest tier of design offering from world leaders Nicklaus Design.
This design features the most extensive involvement by Jack Nicklaus, who personally directs all design-related issues and serves as promotional spokesman for the golf course.
Jack Nicklaus visits the site to determine the feasibility of layout and design, is present during the construction phases and provides input and approval on all key decisions.
Jack’s unique touch is evident throughout the course and his masterpiece is characterised by lush green-all-season fairways, exceptional bunkering and the clever use of beautiful water features.
