Erinvale was once part of the historic farm Vergelegen. The nucleus of the Farm Erinvale, is a portion of one of the four portions auctioned after confiscation of Vergelegen. The owner of the adjacent Lourensford Estate, Mr David Gant, bought Erinvale in May 1989 and during the early 1990's pursued his vision of developing a residential golfing estate, the 1st to be developed in the Cape. Throughout the course there are majestic mountain backdrops, panoramic views of the surrounding hillsides planted with vine and sparkling views of the ocean from the higher vantage points.

The greens at Erinvale are huge and well-shaped allowing for several different pin placements. A feature of the layout is that different coloured flags tell you the position of the pin, blue flags at the back, white in the middle and red at the front. Erinvale is also a real estate development where homes blend well into the landscape.

Erinvale is open to tourists that have a valid Handicap Certificate. The tourist green fees is R330.00 per player per 18 holes. Cart fees are R140.00. Tee times at Erinvale Golf Club are available on the following days: Monday, Tuesday & Friday. Thursdays and on weekends for members only; in December und January only for guests of the Erinvale Hotel.
