Accommodation near Hanover Golf Club

Hanover Golf Club is a small establishment on the outskirts of Hanover, a fittingly small town in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. The club does not consist of much and there is no doubt that the golf course is its main attraction, for it is pretty much all that constitutes the club.

The tiny town of Hanover is named after Hanover in Germany. It is located at the junction where the N1 and N4 highways meet. The town's principal claim to fame is that it is said to be the most centrally-located settlement in South Africa. It claims to be an equal distant from Upington, in the Northern Cape, Port Elizabeth, in the Eastern Cape, Durban, in KwaZulu Natal, Johannesburg in Gauteng and Cape Town in the Western Cape. It also lies at the base of an arc, made up by Colesburg, De Aar and Middleburg.

The town initially developed in 1854 as a trading post and layover stop for people travelling through the interior of South Africa. It is unknown when the Hanover Golf Club came about though.

The club consists of a 10-hole course as well as a putting green in order to get your eye in before a game. Officially the course is classified as a parklands golf course, generally named for the inland location and lush, tree-surrounded environs, but given Hanover's arid location, the course is not quite as lush, green and leafy as your typical parklands course.

Instead it has a desolate appeal, which is attractive to those who appreciate 'alone time' and a bit of wide open space. The course is only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays (visitors are welcome on both days) and often the only company you will have are the merino sheep which are farmed in the area.

Hanover Reviews

Really quiet little town. I loved it!
- Pieter De Jager

My dad grew up there, so for a city-family we did not really look forward to that walk down memory lane in the middle of nowhere with him. However, we ended up feeding the local kids, befriended some great people at the hotel, climbed Trappieskop and almost emptied "Dot se winkel".
Fantastic little jewel in the Karoo.

Very quiet, quaint little town
- Susan Carusi

Hanover is a restful, sleepy, peaceful little town that everyone should visit.
- Trevor Louw

Hanover is a surprise. There's more to it than one expects and the locals are great entertainment. The pub at the hotel is an absolute gem and a great place for people watching.....
- Paul Wainwright

We wished we had and longer to look around Hanover, which we had never stopped at before . It was buzzing the Saturday we were there as a film was in progress! Another lovely little Karoo town.
- Sue James

Hanover is a tiny Platteland dorpie with the clear, dry air that makes the Karoo so special. Imagine our surprise to find an enormous film crew all over the place!
If quiet is what you want, this is the place for you. The night is made even more peaceful by the soft ring of the church tower clock to mark the hours.
Hanover brought back good memories of the past but will draw us back there with the new memories we made on our stay.
