Gooderson Monks Cowl Golf Resort

You are keen to have a holiday in the Drakensberg but you have specific ideas for fun, adventure and relaxation. Where is a place that has golf, putt putt, a pool to cool off in, jungle gym and trampolines for the kids and even a Spa?
Gooderson Monks Cowl Golf Resort has all of that and tennis, badminton, volleyball, fishing, darts, board games,
pool table and mountain bike trails.
But do they have good food and will I be able to go hiking or for a scenic walk?
Yes, they have good hearty food with generous portions (really generous) and there is great hiking on the Monks Cowl mountain trails. There are so many other activities such as the birds at Falcon Ridge (make sure you have cash available to pay for the show), reptiles, Drakensberg Canopy Tour, chocolate tasting at Chocolate Memories and
delicious breads and pastries at Valley Bakery. In fact Monks Cowl Golf Resort is centrally situated in the Champagne Valley with ease of access to all of these activities outside of the resort.
Kids will love the rock pool and slide
Monks Cowl Golf Resort has 35 superior hotel rooms one of which is a disabled room. The rooms have either dam or mountain views, 2 double beds, bathroom with shower and bath, air conditioning, DSTV, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar fridge and a private patio. There is one executive / honeymoon suite with a king size bed, Jacuzzi bath and a double shower.
Superior rooms and the Friar Tuck restaurant
There are also 8 self-catering units which are fully equipped with a master bedroom en-suite, second bedroom with twin beds and adjacent bathroom and 2 sleeper couches in the lounge. All units have DSTV, fireplace and a private patio with braai facilities.
Reception, putt putt and inside a self catering unit
The Monks Cowl staff are very friendly and helpful but don’t expect much assistance from the resident cat – Tom. He does however love to have his photo taken and you should get a visit from him in the bar at night.
Have a relaxing massage at La Vita Spa and enjoy great food at Friar Tuck
This was my third stay at Gooderson Monks Cowl and it was fabulous to be back, to see familiar faces and the views of the beautiful mountains. It was also great to have a new experience by attending the bird show at Falcon Ridge.
