The Soho Hotel provides a variety of accommodation options, from luxury twin rooms to superior luxury family rooms, from enchanting ground-floor luxury suites to an extravagant presidential suite. Wheelchair accessible rooms are also available on request.

Tantalise your taste buds with a feast of piquant Asian-inspired cuisine in the Orchid Restaurant. Keep it “local” and tuck into some lip-smacking “lekker” South African fare in the Calabash Restaurant. Give in to the temptation of idleness and spend a relaxing afternoon soaking up the rays alongside the Hotel’s crystal-clear pool.

The Nedbank Golf Challenge
14- 17 November 2019

The Gary Player Country Club is acknowledged as a difficult and demanding course. Since 1981 it has been home to the Nedbank Golf Challenge. The course requires stamina and accuracy from players.

Off the back markers the course measures over 7 000 metres which makes it one of the longest in the world. But a variety of tees make it possible to shorten the course and render playable for all levels of golfers. A distinguishing feature of the course is its green's complexes, with strategically placed bunkers, swales and mounds that protect the super slick clover shaped greens. With pristine perfect kikuyu fairways and excellent bent grass greens the course is kept in perfect condition all year round.

The Nedbank Golf Challenge is one of the highlights of the South African sporting calendar. In a 38 year history, the event has featured the biggest names in world golf. With 64 players, playing over 4 days, for a purse of .5 million. The tournament takes place from the 14-17 November 2019 and forms part of the Rolex Series on the European Tour and the penultimate event on the Race to Dubai.
