On the north eastern edge of East London, on the southern banks of the Chintsa River, lie 1000ha of rolling green hills comprising residential belts, a boutique hotel, a wedding venue, conference centre, championship 18-hole golf course and world-class eateries.
Olivewood boasts views of the Eastern Cape’s pristine coastline together with the rolling greens of an 18-hole championship golf course. Nestled within the beauty of the Chintsa Valley, the 550-stand estate fosters a life of comfort and safety with 24/7 gated security and easy access to the East London business hub and airport.
Framed by the indigenous forest, Olivewood’s par 72 course measures 6200m from the tees and 4900m from the ladies tees. Carefully placed water features, trees and magnificent greens highlight the unique layout of the course and offer golfers of all levels a fair challenge.
The 18-hole championship golf course with country and sea views was designed to follow the natural contours of the land with beautiful kikuyu fairways and bent grass greens. The rough has been kept relatively short, while long bushveld grass on the outskirts awaits those errant shots. The course features many “risk and reward” holes with golf carts to take golfers comfortably over and through the pristine valleys.
To add to the uncompromising levels of comfort, The Clubhouse and The Restaurant boast exceptional tasteful cuisine and a comprehensive wine list. Experience classic hospitality on wide-open verandas with exceptional views of the fairways, greens and passing wildlife.
The Rosewood Event venue and our Conference venue offer the perfect ambiance for all your conferencing and event needs. Our hospitality teams are passionate about delivering uncompromising quality and service.
